∎ What Is a Project Officer? Job Description & Salary Included by Peter Landau | Jul 25, 2023A project manager can’t do it alone. When the project is larger and more complex, the organization often employs someone called a project officer. This person is tasked with helping ensure the project is delivered successfully. To better understand what a project officer is, let’s define the profession and explain what it is they do in relation to the overall project. We’ll also compare and contrast the roles of a project officer with a project manager and help you put together a job description if you’re in the market for one. What Is a Project Officer? A project officer assists the project manager. The position is sometimes referred to as an assistant project manager, project coordinator or project assistant. Whatever the name, the responsibilities include helping the project manager plan and execute strategic projects. In terms of the industries in which a project officer might find work, they vary. Any project manager that needs assistance to fulfill their job will hire a project officer, whether that’s in healthcare, technology, manufacturing or logistics. You’ll even find project officers working in not-for-profit organizations and government agencies. What Does a Project Officer Do? In general, project officers handle the busy work and take that off the plate of the project manager. This allows the project manager to focus on more important tasks, but that doesn’t mean a project officer’s responsibilities are trivial. In fact, they’re crucial to the success of the project. Helps With Research Critical work such as research falls on the lap of the project manager. That research could be on the best technology to execute and track the project or it might be focused on the resource requirements for the project. This, again, frees the project manager to review what the project officer has found and make an executive decision. Project managers have many duties and the project officer is there to assist as needed. This can mean that they help the project manager create a project proposal to ensure that it’s thorough and convince sponsors that they should approve the project. Assembles the Project Plan Once a project has been approved, the project officer will help the project manager with the project plan. The project plan is an important document, one that covers everything from organizing tasks into a viable schedule to determining which resources will be needed and creating a budget. After planning is done, the project officer coordinates the project schedule with team members. That could mean charting their availability, vacation, PTO and holidays to make it easier for a project manager to make assignments. Executes Administrative Duties There are basic administrative duties, such as taking notes during meetings to provide project documentation. They’ll also upload project documentation to project management software and create resource lists and guidelines for the project team, according to the project plan. Project officers also help the project manager by tracking the team’s progress as they execute their tasks. This helps the project manager know if the project is moving forward as planned or if there needs to be some adjustments made to time, cost or scope to get back on track. Oversees Reporting Reporting is another responsibility for project officers. They’ll gather data and generate reports on the project’s progress and performance for the project manager. These reports help the project manager guide the project to successful completion and update stake holders. Other duties can include testing project results, taking part in a post-mortem to discuss what went right and what went wrong during the project to learn from their mistakes. Then there are other tasks that a project manager might ask for help on. Project Officer Job Description Now that we understand what a project officer is and what they do in a project, the question remains: Do you need a project officer? If the answer is yes, then you’re going to want to post a job description that touches on all the bases in order to attract the best person for the job. The job description for a project officer should begin with a summary overview of the position. Then you’ll want to list all the duties and responsibilities associated with that position. There are likely requirements and qualifications that an employer would prefer and those should also be included. Then end with the education requirements. To help you post a job description for a project officer, we’ve included a sample project officer job description below. Feel free to edit it to fit your organization where necessary and cut and paste it to the job board of your choice. Summary The project officer will report directly to the project manager and assist with all aspects of the project from initiation to closure. They’ll be results-oriented and motivated, accustomed to working in a fast-paced environment. The ideal candidate will have a history of assisting project managers with delivering projects on time and within budget. Time management skills are a must, as well as paying close attention to detail, and being accurate and reliable.
