We are delighted to announce that QA is sponsoring the Young Project Professional of the Year at the 2021 Association for Project Management (APM) Project Management Awards.

Taking place on November 15 at Old Billingsgate, the awards ceremony will once again celebrate outstanding projects, project managers and project teams across every industry.

Project management now represents one of the UK’s largest areas of business, with the gross value added to the UK economy estimated to be £156 billion but like many industries in the UK it is facing a skills shortage.

Dr Ian Clarkson, Project Management Practice Director at QA, said: “There has never been a better time to join the Project Management profession. Everywhere we look around us there are major digital transformation, infrastructure and change projects taking place. Their success is dependent on the ability of skilled project management professionals. As businesses and public sector organisations adapt and recover from the global pandemic, we will be more dependent than ever on the skills of the individuals that we celebrate in this annual awards ceremony. We wish all of the finalists the best of luck in the 2021 APM awards.”
