About Us

PMSelect’s mission is the recruitment and career development of project, programme and portfolio managers, consultants and executives.

PMSelect recruits able project professionals from a market now under supplied. We have built a strong search capability, a powerful network in the project management community and developed our own suite of tailor-made interview and assessment tools and methods. With these strengths, combined with our own professional experience and expertise in project management we find, interest, assess and recommend the most able people to our clients.

We are creative recruiters, serving our clients’ pursuit of competitive advantage and business success. We are relied upon to produce a strong short-list: never limited by the earliest thinking, not always from the obvious sources and often offering additional skills or fresh approaches; a step or two beyond those originally conceived.

A wide network of contacts in the project management community

PMSelect is extensively networked: a direct result of our success as recruiters and from our work supporting the career development of project management professionals. This strong position has been achieved through:

  • Our association with the project management community
  • Our strong research capability for locating able candidates
  • The presentation of papers at conferences and in specialist journals
  • The provision of ‘Strategy Pointers’ where our consultants act as mentor to support career planning
  • The relationships that we develop with professionals.
