Projects & Change
Project Resource Partners approached the beginning of the financial year with a renewed sense of enthusiasm as new budgets released meant that many of our clients began to embark on major transformational change projects. It soon became evident that candidates seemed to have more options available to them particularly in the areas of Change Management, Process Improvement and Business Analysis.
However, enthusiasm turned to frustration with some roles being pulled at the last minute and in some cases, the scope of projects changed with budgets decreasing. More often than not, the recruitment process was delayed or moved slowly. Despite this, the general sentiment was that there was still significant activity taking place, particularly in the Project Management space.
Daily rates have decreased with some candidates prepared to drop their rate by as much as $400 per day in order to secure a role before the Christmas break.
Recent job flow has been predominantly in the areas of Project Management, Process Improvement, Lean and Six Sigma and BA roles in data and business intelligence. There has also been an increase in senior level change management positions available within top-tier organisations looking for high calibre individuals with large scale Programme Change delivery experience. SMEs in Oracle and Primavera continue to be in high demand.
