Our top questions
How do I get into Project Management?

The usual way to get into project management is via a business degree, but within the IT arena it is more common for specialists to move into it through an internal sideways move in their own organisation.

You would usually come to it from a functional role where you have taken on responsibility for the delivery of an IT project, or been seconded onto a specific project to ensure its delivery. If you are looking to get into project management, then you should seek out these kinds of opportunities in your current work setting.

What is the career path for a Project Manager?

There is quite a linear career path from Junior Project Manager to Project Manager and then Senior Project Manager. Beyond this, you would move upwards to roles like Programme Manager, setting up and overseeing larger projects with more complex demands, like a company relocation, new premises, and leading a team of project managers.

How much should I expect to earn as a Project Manager?

A Junior PM would start at a salary of around £25k. Senior PMs often earn £50k-60k per year, with Programme Managers getting anything from £500-800 per day, depending on the size of the project.

What qualifications or certifications do I need as a Project Manager?

There are quite a few certifications possible in the project management world. Prince2 is a widely-recognised (both in the UK and internationally) project management qualification following a process-based methodology, with various gradings according to experience or seniority. Getting a Prince2 qualification can help you a great deal when it comes to securing a job.

Other certifications are also available, like PMP (Certified Project Management Professional), MSP (Managing Successful Programmes courses) and some other side-qualifications like Scrum Master for specific agile systems.

What’s the future for Project Management?

Similar to business analysis, we’d expect high-quality project managers to be around for a long time. As the job is quite generalist, with contractors moving from company to company, the more technical and better-qualified PMs will be in demand in future.

As technology and connectedness gets ever more smooth, good project managers will be improving interpersonal skills, managing resources and dealing with expectation management as much as running the projects.

What type of companies hire a Project Manager?

Usually, larger companies running their own IT development in conjunction with their usual business activities, or software companies integrating specific projects, will hire project managers. Whenever a company is rolling out a new system or making significant changes there will be a need for a professional to make sure everything is coming together properly.
