Project Manager - Dorset

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 Dorset

An English county in the south-west, Dorset shares borders with Devon, Wiltshire and Somerset - it also has an extensive coastline along the English Channel.

Dorset includes a number of towns - like Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Dorchester, Portland and Weymouth - and while the majority of the region is rural, it offers a number of options for those seeking Project Manager vacancies.

For much of Dorset's past, the economy was based on agriculture, while mining and fishing were also important industries.

These days, however, things are a bit different in Dorset and the region now relies mainly on the service sector, hospitality and retail. Construction and manufacturing are also important industries, while a number of armed forces facilities are also located here - such as the Royal Armoured Corps in Bovington and the Royal Marines in Poole.

Several large companies can be found in Dorset, including J.P. Morgan and Sunseeker International, which manufactures yachts. Aerospace companies like BAE Systems and Cobham plc have facilities in the region, while Bournemouth University is also a big employer.

Other companies include Dorset Cereals, Fitness First, Merlin Entertainments, Lloyds TSB Insurance and Imagine Publishing.
