Main Duties and Responsibilities:
Skills, Attitude & Approach:
Knowledge of the Client’s Business:
Project Managers should have a good knowledge and understanding of their Client’s business. They should be capable of using this knowledge to inform their actions whether that is in discussions with the Client or briefing operations/fieldwork/other suppliers. They should develop and maintain a professional relationship with clients on a daily basis as the focal point of contact and ensure the provision of project management services are of a quality consistent with M3’s standards as judged by the Operations Director.
They should be comfortable working with the client and be able to hold their own when necessary; displaying judgment as to what extent they can commit M3 to deliver the project as briefed. The Project Manager’s experience should allow them to foresee and forestall potential problems in all Client initiated activity. With this experience they should know when to escalate any potential client issues and alert all those involved.
An essential element of project management is the ability to set up both the client’s and internal team’s expectations. The quest should be to effectively manage the client’s expectation of the work, and aim to exceed this where possible. Above all else, experienced Project Managers must have the knowledge and foresight to inform management in good time of any concerns regarding project deliverables. They must agree the project budget with management/business development prior to project start and prepare a sample plan to cover all fieldwork requirements and deliverables. For periods of absence they must ensure project details are handed over, providing access to all necessary information to enable the project to continue successfully during their absence. At the client’s request they should be able to provide a full summary of results, costs, conclusions and implications and seek feedback from the client on project satisfaction. Finally, they should complete final invoice for the client - ensuring this is signed off by the client and their manager.
Meeting/ Conference Call Preparation:
All documentation and updates likely to be required in the meeting/call are the responsibility of the Project Manager to ensure that they are present and to the best standard possible given budgetary and time constraints.
The Project Manager is the central co-ordination role of the team, providing accurate briefing and ensuring that information is available when required by their team leader or other departments. They are positioned to develop the most effective cross-departmental team spirit and understanding of the Client context of all projects – no one should ever work in a
vacuum. It is expected that the Project Manager has the judgment to know when they should seek guidance from their seniors prior to a situation becoming critical and/or to act as mentor to the more junior project managers who may not have as much experience in identifying potential issues.
The candidate will be able to negotiate costs with partners.
Financial Management of Project Costs:
Ensure timely and profitable quoting and subsequent invoicing of all jobs/projects and the efficient management of jobs prior to final invoicing. Define and agree margin on each project in support of overall company target. Ensure achievement of revenue and maintenance of margin during course of project. In so doing, demonstrate an understanding of team/project profitability. Maintain at all times an analysis of all the project costs so you are able to provide accurate information to the Operations Director either during or at the end of each project.
Inspiring Relationships with Partners/Suppliers:
When M3 works alongside other partner companies, it is expected that the Project Manager is able to demonstrate at an administrative and implementation level, a total understanding of their role such that it inspires total confidence and respect.
This individual is expected to demonstrate enthusiasm and pride in constantly improving the quality of production of every project that M3 delivers. As such they should have relationships based on mutual respect and trust with other departments.
