                                        This week, A day in the life of a Project Manager.


Vishal Rehan is a Project Manager at Cloudreach. Prior to Cloudreach, Vishal Studied Chemical Engineering with Management at Edinburgh University and pursued a career in IT Consultancy.


How did you become a Project Manager and what attracted you about this job?
I became a project manager through my progression in my previous IT consultancy career specifically focusing on overall delivery and project management.  I was attracted to this job as it allows you to work with every level of the clients business and work closely with different teams with a variety of skill sets.


How did you first learn about Cloudreach?
I learnt about Cloudreach through a friend from University who worked there. All he could say was how amazing the people, the work and the overall culture was in Cloudreach compared to all the previous companies he had ever worked for.


What do you do on a day-to-day basis?
As any project manager will tell you no day is the same, but an average day would be checking my emails in the morning, catching up with my team with a daily standup per project, being the face of the team in all client meetings, dealing with any ad-hoc requests (which there are usually many), liaising with account management team once a week to manage overall commercials and managing overall project and programme delivery.


What are the most challenging aspects of your job?
Managing the client and their expectations.  Any issues I have ever experienced have been due to clients expecting more than paid for, delaying projects due to lack of time and knowledge within their teams and the client teams/ fellow suppliers not working cooperatively.  


What do you feel is the key skill needed to succeed in your role?
Being able to build strong and trusting relationships with the client and with your engineers to ensure maximum buy in from both parties


What are your favourite aspects of your job?
Working with such smart people and constantly delivering new change


What would your advice for newcomers be?
Be willing to ask for help, everyone in Cloudreach will make time to help you out if you just ask.  Also it allows you to get to know people and this is a very people orientated firm


Before working at Cloudreach, Did you work as a Project Manager? How does this compare to working at Cloudreach?
I worked as a delivery and project manager before working in Cloudreach.  The difference was I was managing very large teams and managing commercials as well as delivery.  Cloudreach has allowed me to focus on delivery and work in smaller teams, which has allowed me to get to know each of my team members better and spend more time understanding the technical aspects of each project delivery


What are 3 words to describe Cloudreach?
Creative, Fun, Innovative 

Keep it Cloudy!


It all started in London! From an idea in a local pub in 2009, Cloudreach's headquarters are now located in Waterhouse Square (in a beautifully ornate gothic building reminiscent of Hogwarts!) in central London next to Chancery Lane station and a stone’s throw from Leather Lane food market.  See what it’s like to work in our Cloudy Hub: A day in our London office

Located in a monumental building overlooking the beautiful and famous canal of the Herengracht, our Amsterdam office is within walking distance to Dam square, the Jordaan and the Wester tower. See what it’s like to work in our cloudy Amsterdam office.

Our second UK office is in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town, nestled at the foot of the ancient hill of Arthur’s Seat and the beautiful modern buildings that house the Scottish Parliament. See what is it to work in our Edinburgh office!

Overlooking Munich, our office is located on the 8th floor of a modern and light building, a short stroll away from Hirschgarten. How about a view of the Alps from our Munich office?

Our new Paris office is located on the iconic Boulevard Haussmann, minutes away from the Champs-Élysées, Parc Monceau and Gare St Lazare. See what it’s like to work in our Paris cloudy hub!

    Interview

    I received an email for a phone interview a couple of weeks after aplying. During the phone interview the recruiter said that they would come back to me in the
    next next couple of days but they never came back to me with any feedback. Not very good candidate experience= would not recomend to work there as recruiter.
