Commentary on Project & Change Management Roles and Remuneration in Ireland for 2017

Preferred candidates are coming from the relevant industry background, have proven project experience and been responsible for significant budgets. Having the project management qualification is a distinct advantage to candidates (i.e PMP, Prince2) and a prerequisite for the majority of project roles. 

We expect the demand to remain strong for 2017 directly with employers and through consulting houses. For the latter it is key that senior candidates have an ability to run projects and develop new business opportunities. In addition we expect a number of project opportunities to arise in the areas of regulation, AML and data governance.

Excellent stakeholder management (internal and external),  people management and communication skills are still the key attributes required.
