Project Management Jobs

Project Management Job Overview

For those who have ever envisioned applying to such positions as a software development manager, a business administrator or a programme coordinator, the general field of project management can certainly be appealing. This sector is defined by the successful development, implementation and monitoring of techniques that are intended to increase business operations. There are numerous unique branches of this sector that deserve a closer examination.

Project Manager Job Education Requirements

Most positions (even entry-level posts) will normally require a specific degree in the associated employment field. For instance, an IT project manager needs to have a bachelor's certification in areas such as programming, software development or engineering. In modern times, it will often prove advantageous to possess a minor in business management or accounting. Several universities throughout the United Kingdom will offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses that can help one attain this level of education. Still, several other character traits should be possessed. These can include:
  • Problem-solving skills.
  • Management experience.
  • The ability to work as a part of a team.
  • Excellent levels of communication.
  • A strong organisational capacity.
Many companies will value these traits just as much as a university degree.

Project Management Job Market

Current figures within the United Kingdom have shown that the need for properly qualified project managers is on the rise. This is partially due to an increased production capacity and also as a result of a shift towards the IT sector in regards to this industry. Thus, it can be seen that managers who boast a robust knowledge of computing and programming should do quite well within this field. Still, there is a growing level of competition within the employment pool. For this reason, an internship or similar work experience can be quite beneficial.

Project Management Job Salaries

2014 figures have shown that that the median salary to be expected in the field of project management is £46,356 pounds per year. This is slightly higher than the year before.
