Your IT project & change management recruitment questions, answered

Is competition high for IT project managers and change managers?

Given the number of transformation and change projects taking place – largely due to legislative changes, Covid-19 and automation rollouts – it’s no surprise that the demand for IT project and change managers is at an all-time high in Canada.
But, the uncertainty of the wider market has made it more difficult for employers to tempt these specialists to join their team, meaning your salary and benefits offering must be competitive – and your role is positioned as an exciting opportunity for an ambitious professional to grow - in order to secure the best people.

How can I improve my recruitment process to secure the right project and change management specialists?

In the case of IT project and change manager roles, we’ve seen the high demand directly causing a much shorter turnaround time between first interviews and job offers being made. Couple this with high competition for top talent, we have one key piece of advice for you: move quickly or you’ll lose out.
Don’t wait too long before deciding to search for an IT project or change manager, and once you’ve found the right person, be quick to secure them.

Aside from a good salary, how can I attract the best IT project and change managers?

Project and change management professionals value training and flexible working. This is an area that is constantly evolving, and employees have an appetite for continued learning and upskilling, so where possible – offer support for training.
Flexible working practices are also important to professionals, and they will be on the lookout for organizations with their long-term flexible working policies established before applying for a job.
