Project support officers provide vital assistance to project managers.
As a project support officer, you won’t only perform routine administrative duties like minute taking – rather, your responsibilities will be inextricably tied to the success of the project you are working on. Driving everything forward from planning to implementation, your actions will directly influence the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the project.
You will be responsible for the monitoring project schedules and budgets, preparing progress reports.
As the project manager’s right hand man (or lady), you will play an important role in project planning and risk and issue management. Moreover, you will log, manage and analyze information on the progress of the project, using Excel and other bespoke databases. You may even be responsible for managing lower-level administrative support staff.
