Project management is a thriving professional discipline much in demand around the globe. Consequently, these chartered professionals can choose from a variety of potential employers including clients and consultants from both the public and private sectors, with either commercial or not-for-profit aims.

Typically, project managers will be appointed at the beginning of a project and will assist the client in developing the project brief and then selecting, appointing and coordinating the project team.

They will then usually represent the client throughout the full development process managing the inputs from the client, consultants, contractors and other stakeholders.
