Officers' Association: Project Management Workshop

  • Newcastle Upon Tyne (map)

Please note, this event is for those registered with the Officers' Association only.

The skills and experience required to manage a project are common within the Forces and many individuals look to transition into a new career within Project Management when they leave, but what does project management look like in a civilian context?

What are businesses looking for in their Project Managers? 
What qualifications do you need to be recognised as a Project Manager? 
How can you optimise your application for these roles?

This workshop will be one of a series of career-focused workshops from the Officers' Association, delivered in conjuction with employers aiming to explore these questions.

The workshop will begin with an overview of project management within a business setting, including a review of qualifications. 

You will then have the opportunity to hear from some fantastic, insightful speakers, who already work in project management offering advice on factors to consider when entering a particular sector. The speakers will be from local employers based in the North East.

Finally, a panel of HR Managers and recruiters will cover some of the key skills and experience they look for in a project management CV and tips for navigating the recruitment process, this session will be run as a panel discussion, with an opportunity to engage with HR managers from a variety of companies afterwards for more individual feedback or questions. So please feel free to bring along your project management focused CV for review on the day.

As this is an intensive workshop, places are limited and can only be offered on a first-come-first-served basis. Participants are required to submit their latest CV on the OA website in advance of the workshop.
