Overview

Is project management right for you?

As a project manager, your role is to oversee the planning, coordination and completion of projects for your company. You’ll be defining the project’s goals, timelines and team members, assigning tasks, and managing the budget and resources allocated to the project.

To accomplish all this successfully, you need a certain set of skills and qualities! Project managers are generally highly organised people. They have strong communication and leadership skills that enable them to manage the project team, provide support, and ensure tasks are completed on time and to a high standard.

You’ll need problem-solving skills to deal with any roadblocks or issues that arise over the course of the project. You should also be comfortable with taking responsibility for key decisions that impact the outcomes and success of a project.

Project management is a large occupation in Australia, with employment projected to remain steady over the next five years. Here are a few quick facts about project management job opportunities in Australia…

  • Almost all project managers work full-time.
  • Salaries for full-time project managers are dependent on the industry the project manager works in, but tend to be higher than the national average. Salaries generally start around the $60,000 mark and can range to $150,000 for higher-level/senior positions.
  • The majority of project managers tend to fall within the 45–54 age bracket, but the percentage of project managers in the 35–44 bracket is higher than the national average, meaning you don’t necessarily need seniority to pursue a successful project management career.
