A day in the life of our Technical Project Manager, Tom Marley

As the Technical Project Manager, I need to have a birds eye view of everything that is happening for our technical offerings. Bull Solutions has gained a lot of clients through our excellent service so that means at any one time we have a number of website builds, updates, and amends taking place. 

It is important that I am able to remain organised, and deploy our resource of developers to ensure that all tasks are completed efficiently, on time, to budget, and to the high standards that we have set for ourselves.  I like to plan my days as they come, meaning each one is different.  The first thing I will often do is check my emails, this allows me to see any issues that have arisen and answer any questions.  I will check my calendar to see what meetings I have on that day or coming up, and what I need to prepare for those. I also look at our project planning software to see what we are currently working on, what the status is, and what we have coming up. From here I can make, and adjust, our plans and ensure that everything is running smoothly.

Like I touched upon before, every day is so varied. Meeting and speaking with clients, I can discuss and learn about their business, learn and advise their vision for their online presence and how they can automate tasks through their website relieving their admin burden. 

And finally, I can coordinate with our internal head office team, ensuring that we are working as effectively as we can, discussing ideas, and working inter-departmentally looking at the whole picture and wide offering of services provided by activ.

Although I like to organise my day, it is crucial that I remain flexible. At any point, I may receive an urgent request, support for a website build, or a vast array of questions that can arise in the world of websites that is so wide-ranging. These can, at times, hold up any given project so I like to respond quickly so that no time is wasted. However, the great thing with working on so many projects simultaneously, is that there is always something to move on to.

I am always keeping one eye on the future looking 1, 2, or 5 years down the line. One thing that I really enjoy doing is reading up on all the latest developments in the world of WordPress design and development.  I believe it is important to stay up to date with new developments as it ensures we remain on trend with great looking, fast, and secure websites.  Additionally, I enjoy looking at other websites, seeing what they have done with their design, and trying to work out how they have created certain aspects, that I can bring into my own work.
