The Market for Project Directors & Managers

Placemaking Project Directors:

In recent years, city planners have adopted a new approach to city planning called placemaking. The goal of placemaking is to create mixed-use spaces that can improve the overall quality of life for residents, workers, and visitors. These projects aim to develop vibrant and livable communities, rather than just constructing buildings.

One of the key areas where this approach is being applied is in central business districts (CBDs). The objective is to create mixed-use projects that can revitalize these areas, which are typically seen as sterile corporate environments. By combining different types of spaces such as apartments, offices, shops, and restaurants, these projects can generate a dynamic and diverse community.

The success of these initiatives depends heavily on the expertise of owner-representatives who can manage multi-billion-dollar projects effectively. These professionals must have extensive experience in real estate development, project management, and community engagement to ensure the success of these ambitious endeavors. However, there is a shortage of skilled professionals available to lead such complex projects, making it increasingly difficult to find the right talent to manage these initiatives.

At Rutherford International, we have an extensive network of Placemaking Project Directors who can elevate any project to success. We have unwavering confidence in their ability to oversee even the most ambitious projects as Owners’ Representatives. Therefore, we offer essential search services for such expertise, a unique service that few other consultancies can provide.

“We are seeing an increase in freelance work at the top end, where individuals have the competencies, confidence and demand in the marketplace to give them as much work as they want,”

Senior Project Managers:

In times of economic instability, governments often seek to stimulate economic growth by investing in projects that can be rapidly implemented. These projects are typically a coordinated effort between both public and private sectors, and they play a vital role in providing job opportunities within cities while addressing infrastructure deficits and housing shortages.

Infrastructure deficits refer to lacking basic amenities such as roads, bridges, water, and sanitation systems. On the other hand, housing deficiencies refer to the shortage of affordable and adequate housing units for the population. Governments aim to tackle these issues by investing in projects that address these problems.

The demand for project managers who can manage these initiatives successfully has increased. These managers play a crucial role in overseeing the projects from start to finish and ensuring they are completed on time and within budget. They must have excellent leadership skills, effective communication skills, and the ability to manage resources efficiently.

Overall, these projects are critical in promoting economic growth and development, and they are an effective way for governments to address social and economic challenges within their respective cities and countries.
