Contractor Among Contractors
Expand on if the role is the same you would be doing if perm?
It's get complicated, but I'm back at an old place (left for 6mths) in a different role. My saviour is that the PM role I'm doing now varies immensely from perm. As perm, I was a team manager of a bunch of PM's / programme managers and the projects I worked on were Printer rollouts and Enterprise printing, but mainly escalations etc.
The reason Im back is that I have a particular set of skills that they dont have internally. I'm now heavily focused on a large BPO deal, pre-sales then delivery. no management, and separate from the perm team. I have MOO, Sub (and likely to be able to place someone IF i needed to as the skills i have are Company knowledge and another area were i already know of resource if needed...) and D&C is heavily in my favour as this is the reason they asked me back, to sell a solution and then make it work. the client knows full well my position and is accepting that this is how it has to be. He is getting the skills he wants, and I'm building clients as we go. I'm also not tied to handcuffs etc, so the end customer of my clients are fair game, and I'm already discussing one or two things (totally unrelated to client) with the customer. Works for everyone!!
Similar job title, but working practice is very different! I spoke to Qdos, several email, proof etc, and they are happy to cover me.
