I have received the following from the client:
We've got a requirement for a contract project manager for a new project to update our network. I've included a list of requirements below and attached our Job Spec we use for recruiting permanent project managers as the requirement for a contract PM is similar. At this stage we're trying to establish who is out on the market and what rate we would have to pay. The project is a significant investment for the University so that rules out anyone at a junior level although a good mid-level PM may be exactly what we need; we won't know until we see some CVs. Is the best way forward to have a chat once you've had a chance to look through the requirements?
