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 a very large FTSE 100 company with lots of opportunities. It is also a friendly company, with fantastic people to work with. 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.
