Frequently asked questions

What does a Project Manager do?

A project manager is responsible for the delivery of a project from initiation to planning, execution, validation and the final evaluation. They minimise risks to delivering a successful project.

The role involves managing budgets, people, work content, and the timing of milestones. It needs excellent communication with a wide range of stakeholders; internally and often externally.

Do I need a qualification to be a project manager?

There are no prerequisites for becoming a project manager but people often study for qualifications such as PRINCE2, APM (Association for Project Management) or PMP (Certified Project Management Professional).

These qualifications can help progress your career, improve your skills, and increase your earning potential.

What are employers looking for on a Project Manager’s CV?

Experience delivering on projects. It’s important to show how you delivered the project. Employers want to see your experience across digital channels and platforms, such as mobile or e-commerce.

Soft skills are also crucial for a successful project manager. You will need to manage a number of different disciplines and manage senior stakeholders effectively. Getting buy-in from everyone and encouraging them to work towards the same goals and timescales is crucial to delivering a project well. You’ll need to demonstrate you’ve been able to do this effectively.

What is the typical salary of a project manager?

Project management salaries vary greatly depending on the size and scale of the project, company and budget.

They range from £30,000 to £35,000 per year for a junior project manager in an agency to more than £80,000 for a senior client-side role.

Positions above this level are usually classed as “programme management”, and involve managing multiple projects.

What project management courses are available?

The Project Management Institute runs a number of qualifications. The PRINCE2 qualification is a useful and widely used qualification for project managers that focuses on “lean” principles.
