Construction Project Management Jobs 

Project Managers assume overall responsibility for the successful planning and execution of any construction project. The title given to project leads in construction is Project Manager to highlight their ownership of different occupations from architecture to site managers and all those based on production of a product or service.

The job comes with high expectations to meet demanding milestones and Project Managers will have increased responsibility for decisions both small and large, in such a way that risk is controlled and uncertainty minimised. Every decision taken by the project manager should be taken in such a way that it directly benefits the project.

UK wide construction projects

2020 sees the kick off for the completion of a number of remarkable construction projects, from major projects including Crossrail, London, Hinckley Point, Midlands and the Thames Tideway Tunnel. There are plenty of projects coming in the next decade and the sector is set to become the host of many new jobs, so you need to keep your eyes on Construction in 2020.

Project manager skills and salary

Project Managers must possess a combination of skills including an ability to ask penetrating questions, detect unstated assumptions and resolve interpersonal conflicts as well as more systematic management skills.

Project Managers use project management software to organise their tasks and workforce. This software enables production of reports and charts in a few minutes, compared to the several hours it can take if they do not use any tool.

As at January 2020, average salaries are £54,000 in Glasgow, Scotland and can reach around £70,000 in London. The rate varies according to location and hiring organisation.
