A typical day in the life of a Project Manager at Capita.
My role involves managing a software development project from the beginning of the development lifecycle to delivering live to the customers. I manage a project with currently 45 people on the team with a mix of onshore and offshore staff. It is a very challenging role that involves a variety of different tasks and challenges, all with the goal of delivering software within the time and budget set by the business.
I have always enjoyed a challenge and started my career at Capita SIMS after university as a User Acceptance Tester. I took on a role as a Test Manager after a few years and have now been a Project Manager for two years. I particularly like working as Project Manager as the main aspects of my role are planning and delivery focused, whilst working with extremely talented individuals who produce high quality software.
I am working on the next generations of SIMS, which is very exciting. We are working with new technology along with Silverlight, .net, HTML and SSRS.

Capita is very clear on its values: ‘work together in teams, encourage a can-do attitude, manage calmly and consistently and embrace diversity’ and these are all very much values I agree with.
