APMs report to the Project Manager and split their time between the field and the office. Hours can be early and sometimes late.
Of the many qualities that make an Assistant Project Manager successful, the most important ones are the confidence to take charge, the spirit to collaborate, and the ability to focus on the details of a project. Our most successful Assistant Project Managers have a sixth sense for anticipating risk.
