A guide to project manager jobs in London Even a cursory glance at the skyline of England’s capital city serves to demonstrate why project manager jobs in London are always in huge demand.As the confluence of cranes and sea of scaffolding attests,the city is subject to constant architectural change and development and thus finding the right people to effectively manage such projects is an ongoing challenge for construction firms.Project managers’ main responsibilities are myriad:planning the project,allocating resources,managing staff and working closely with architects and engineers,agreeing milestones and timelines,and budget management.Construction project managers should have knowledge and experience of the industry as they need to be able to make important decisions,often on site. It is also the role of the project manager to report progress or any project changes to all relevant stakeholders.An important aspect of the job is to maintain a good relationship with the client throughout the project to ensure a positive end result.

Between construction projects,a project manager will arrange site visits to maintain existing client relationships,as well as attempt to develop new contacts for future projects.They might also spend time between projects upskilling,or gaining qualifications. Key project manager skills Construction project managers must have a wide range of management abilities,with a particular focus on organisation and planning skills.They should be good team workers and great at motivating the people they work with and manage.While they might not have any direct reports on a project,they should possess leadership skills too as project delivery is ultimately their responsibility. Project managers are often required to resolve conflict between various project stakeholders so they must be diplomatic and remain calm and focused under pressure.This also means they need to be excellent communicators and delegators. Qualifications and experience It is not essential to have a formal qualification,however a degree in engineering or construction is often desirable.Most project managers will have several years of experience as an assistant on construction projects,however there are some options to go down an apprenticeship route,which would provide extensive on site experience. Project managers must have an up to date knowledge of health and safety standards and experience of working with common construction project management software.
