I’ve decided to lean into maximum transparency today, and have published my salary details for all project management roles from 2008 to 2020 – covering my roles as project manager, PMO Lead, Portfolio Assurance Partner. The video shows the differences in earnings as a permanent staff member, a contractor and a fixed term contract.
I hope that this transparency helps others in the profession to make better strategic decisions about what types of roles they choose to take and their salary expectations. I’ve explained there have been times I’ve been above and below the average market rate, and what variables impacted that.
Hopefully you’ll find this informative. If not, I hope it’s at least interesting! Let me know what you think.
