Where do i start?

Simon

Hi all,

I've been working as a project manager on 2 European Social Fund Projects for the last year and a half, and after this project lifecycle i'm keen to move away from the frighteningly unprofessional and unscrupulously poor financial literacy that seems ubiquitous in the public sector organisations that i'm involved with.

I wonder if anyone would be able to give me some advice on where i should start looking. I have a bachelor of arts degree which i passed with distinction at a top University in South Africa, and for the past two years i have been managing all aspects of project delivery, from stakeholder contract reviews to budget and timescales.

I have been considering firms such as Accenture or Capgemini, but it seems that without specific technical experience they're not interested in people with a background such as mine.

Can anyone suggest firms i should apply to, and what field i should be looking at getting into?

Thanks,

Simon

simon,

'without specific technical experience they're not interested' - I don't quite agree. If you would want to work for ACN (different issue), I think they would value your experience as long as you make it relevant to the role, e.g. apply as consultant for Finance&PerformanceMgt for the Government business line. As long as you can demonstrate the typical skill set (analytics/soft skills etc.) you'll be fine.

cheers,

Simon, you could have a look at the Project & Programme Management practice at PA.
