Get a Great PMO Role

Last week was Project Challenge and in this session – recorded at the show – we looked at the PMO role.

Here’s the overview:

What do you need to think about to get a great PMO role? In this session, Lindsay takes a look at the CV, the social media present, reading adverts, training & development, knowing what you’re selling and understanding how employers hire PMO people. It’s a whistle-stop tour with lots of practical insights, tips and things you can put into practice straight away.

It really does have a lot of different aspects discussed – the CV, job advertisements; training and development and careers in organisations.


It looks at four different areas – starting with understanding what it is you have to offer.

The slide below is all about taking a step back and having the time and space to think about what it is you have to offer – and that can be used in finding a new role – creating a CV for that or getting prepared for a promotion conversation.

In the presentation there are further questions that can be used as a prompt when trying to get to the nitty-gritty of what your marketable skills are.

Take a look at the video session and download the presentation below too.
