Commentary on Project and Change Management Roles and Remuneration in Ireland for 2018

The demand for business and non-tech project and programme managers in financial services was very steady across banking, funds, insurance and consulting in 2017.  This is due to a number of factors including new business wins, regulatory change (GDPR), process improvement, system upgrades and digitization projects. At the start of the year we saw a reduction in the need for project staff working on redress projects, however, due to the tracker mortgage crises arising in Q4, professional required to work on redress projects were much needed again. 

Companies are increasingly looking for qualified project managers experienced in agile and waterfall who can run projects from a governance, budgeting and steering perspective. In addition subject matter experts (SEMs) who have managed projects in their day-to-day roles in on boarding, regulatory change, system migrations and process improvement are in demand.

Top trends for 2017 included strong demand for project managers in risk and compliance management; data compliance, aligned to the advent of GDPR. Consulting firms are seeing continuous success in winning large programmes of work for project and programme managers.  While day rates are competitive in project management they are not as competitive as other locations, namely London, so job-seeking professionals would need to have measured expectations when contracting in Ireland. Project managers are much in demand in permanent recruitment as well. 

2018 looks bright for project and programme managers and we can predict an increase on salaries on the permanent side. Being PM qualified will become increasingly important for professionals in this competitive market and staying very skilled and current is key to staying sought after.
