I work for a local authority which is undergoing a very rapid change programme. There is an opportunity for me to apply for a six-month secondment as a project manager. I would be working under the supervision of someone from a large firm of consultants, so hopefully would receive good on-the-job training.
If I did this, I would want to use the experience to look for more flexible work with an agency, as I want to reduce my work to about 3 days a week. I was wondering whether any existing project managers work in this way and how easy it is to get this sort of work?
