We currently have 2271 Project Management Jobs in the UK

Project management involves overseeing resources and people, working under pressure to deadlines and delegating tasks to others. Industry experts predict over 168,000 new project management jobs will be created in the UK by 2027, with this figure rising to an incredible 22 million globally. Project manager roles can be found across many different industries, particularly oil & gas, finance, insurance, manufacturing and construction.

Project management jobs will involve you taking charge of many different and individual tasks. This will include setting objectives, budgeting, delegating roles, producing schedules, motivating others, identifying and managing risks, reporting regularly to clients/managers and ultimately ensuring everything promised is delivered on time and of appropriate quality. As project manager, you will be responsible for all the above and more, with you also taking the blame if anything goes wrong.

Whilst realistically you can enter project management with a degree in any subject, a qualification in business or project management will give you practical knowledge about the role and likely make you more attractive to prospective employers. For some roles, such as IT, you will also be required to have specific subject knowledge. Additional skills that help in project management include being organised, strong interpersonal skills, good time and budget management and the ability to make decisions and use your initiative.

With 22 million new project management positions predicted to appear globally over the next seven years, it is an exciting and promising career to enter. Salaries in this sector are generally good, starting around £20,000 and rising to anywhere between £40,000 and £80,000 for experienced project managers. Meanwhile, freelance project managers can expect a daily rate of between £300 – £500 depending on the size, location and complexity of the project. Professional qualifications in project management are available through various organisations, including the Chartered Management Institute.

There are various advantages to working in project management, perhaps the biggest being you are in charge. As such, the position comes with good job satisfaction, if everything goes to plan! Creating something from nothing, empowering others and delivering real business value are all additional benefits of a career in project management. Other advantages include opportunities to work in different locations, interacting with people from diverse backgrounds and being able to have real input and responsibility.

The biggest disadvantages to working in project management are often the flip side of the benefits. Being in control means you are ultimately responsible if something goes wrong, with clients often quick to attach blame should something bad happen. Having to work to tight deadlines and the possibility of unsociable hours and overtime, often unpaid, are also very real things to consider. Other issues can include having to deal with demanding clients, managing and bringing together different parties and dealing with uncertainty and incidents often out of your control.
