What does your role involve?I’m Project Manager for the Core Web Development and instantprint Web Development teams. My job is to make sure the business has supplied all the relevant information for the developers to work their way through projects; I make sure we’re on track for any deadlines, and try to make sure there are no work blockers, whilst ensuring the developers are happy with their current tasks.
What’s the best bit about your job?There’s so much to learn! I don’t come from a technical background, so it was a bit like learning a foreign language to begin with. I pick up something new every day, and I don’t think that will stop any time soon! It’s also great when we pull off a smooth release, and we can see how everyone’s hard work has paid off.
