Project Manager - Belfast

Project Manager Jobs

All businesses need to go through change and transformation from time to time as they strive to excel in their industries or start along a path to diversification. But winding down certain business practices and embarking on a whole new set of principles, philosophies and practices is not something that comes naturally to many businesses, who thrive on continuity. So when a major change or transformation project is decided upon by a board, one of the first appointments is a project manager to oversee the process.

The role of project manager varies widely from company to company. Some are there from the start, putting together a brilliant team of specialist sourced from internal and external resources, and then designing and implementing a thorough plan for seeing the project through. Others have a more traditional managerial role, taking detailed instructions from the board and putting the tools and resources in place to see them through. Either way, the C&T project manager guides the project and is the person who ultimately ensures its success.

The skills required

Companies looking for C&T project managers do not want to leave anything to chance, and are looking for experienced managers who have overseen complex and time-sensitive projects successfully. Your skills therefore need to be twofold. Firstly, you need to be a fantastic manager of people and a great communicator, as you will be relaying instructions than might be complex and of critical importance to the project, so they need to be right. Secondly, you should have experience of project managing C&T in a similar sector to get the most out of the knowledge and expertise gained.

Most large companies will require a formal qualification in project management, such as PRINCE2, APM or PMI as a minimum requirement for the role. However, a CV full of success stories in C&T project management may be enough for some companies, and many will provide training and the opportunity to study for these qualifications.

Project Manager Jobs in Belfast

As Northern Ireland's capital and largest city, Belfast offers a number of opportunities for those seeking Project Manager positions.

The region was first settled during the Bronze Age and had become a thriving community by the 17th century.

During the Industrial Revolution, Belfast was known for producing a broad range of goods, including linen, rope and tobacco.

Meanwhile, its proximity to two large bodies of water - Belfast Lough and the River Lagan - made the city an ideal location for shipbuilding.

Over a period of 150 years, Harland and Wolff - once one of the city's most famous shipbuilders and currently fabricating equipment for the marine, offshore and renewable energy sectors - constructed numerous vessels. These included luxury liners like the Titanic, Olympic and Britannic, as well as the HMS Belfast, a Royal Navy light cruiser that is now permanently moored on the River Thames in central London.

Following the First World War, Belfast's economy began to slowly decline and by the 1960s and 1970s, the city's situation gradually deteriorated as civil unrest of the period known as The Troubles created a fragile financial situation and a community riddled with violence.

However, since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, Belfast has once again emerged as a city with a viable economy and there has been rapid redevelopment.

These days, Belfast is a centre for education and commerce and companies based here include Allstate NI, Moy Park, Bombardier Aerospace and Translink - Northern Ireland's main provider of public transport.
