Project Manager Jobs

Project manager jobs lead large projects and have responsibility for planning, management, co-ordination and financial control.

Project manager jobs discuss with their client exactly what is required and then develop a detailed plan, agree the timescale for the project, costs involved and quality standards required.  Project manager jobs will select and lead a project team, may negotiate with contractors for the supply of materials and services, monitor the project constantly to make sure that it is progressing on time and on budget. 

Projects manager jobs will also meet clients regularly to report on the project's progress, and use well-established project management methods and computers to assist with project control.

Some project manager jobs involve working normal office hours, while others have no set hours, and may sometimes have to work evenings and weekends to meet deadlines. Project manager jobs are office based, but may also travel to visit clients and to see how a project is progressing.

Project manager jobs should have strong leadership skills, be logical, methodical and skilled at problem solving and enjoy working to deadlines.

Project management is a large and growing field and project manager jobs are employed throughout the UK by organisations in all types of work. Some may do contract work for consultancy firms.

There are no set qualifications for entry to project manager jobs but generally most entrants have a degree or postgraduate qualification that includes project management. Adult entry is also possible for those with a sound knowledge and experience of the area requiring a project manager.

Once in work, training is on the job and project manager jobs may work towards the qualifications of a range of professional organisations which specialise in project management. There are also NVQs/SVQs in Project Management at Levels 4 and 5. Continuing professional development is important.  Project manager jobs can progress to senior management posts. Some set up their own consultancy businesses and there may be opportunities to work abroad.
