Why should you become a Project Manager?
If becoming a Project Manager is something that you’re considering as a career path then you’re certainly heading in a worthwhile direction.
Project management roles are desirable, as what you will gain from becoming one is extremely rewarding.
The demand for Project Managers is high. There will be roughly 22 million project management jobs opening between now and 2027, as they’re needed in such a wide variety of industries. Although quite common in the IT field, project-oriented work is also common in business services, oil and gas, finance and insurance, manufacturing, construction, and utility industries.
Being a Project Manager will involve a lot of hard work but there are always perks to the job. Some projects (although sadly not all) may require you to travel all over the world. This can give you overseas experience whilst seeing different cultures and understanding how they work.
The average salary for a Project Manager is around £50,000 p/a, once you are qualified with experience. You can expect a starting salary of around £20,000 p/a. Not bad at all for a starting point in your career.
Be a mini CEO

No two days are the same
Each day will bring you different challenges and hurdles to overcome. This makes the job interesting and not too tedious, so if you enjoy change this is the perfect career for you to get qualified in.
You will be expected to work long hours as a Project Manager. At times your work flexibility can be controlled by you. However, the places you will have to work in will vary. This will make you adapt to your own schedules and give you the ability to create your own working patterns and times.
You will become very valuable to the company which will have an impact on the company’s morale.
