The responsibilities that project management roles involve on a day-to-day basis will vary depending on role type, seniority and sector. In general, the role of a Project Manager or Product Manager is to plan, instigate and direct the execution of specific projects, either in-house or for a client organisation. Also known as a Project Coordinator, project management professionals are responsible for ensuring that projects are completed on time, within budget, and in line with the original project scope. Junior Project Manager jobs tend to involve managing multiple projects at once, with multi-tasking being a key component of the role.
Although the everyday duties of graduate Project Manager jobs vary, a Graduate Project Coordinator working for an agency can expect some variation of the following key responsibilities:
– Working in partnership with clients on briefing and scoping projects, including critical path creation, task management, and agreeing on objectives and measurable outcomes.
– Effective planning, liaising and management of project teams to ensure that everyone is clear on their own tasks, budgets and deadlines.
– Supporting the efficiency and quality of internal processes
– Acting as the client’s main point of contact, building an ongoing relationship by facilitating timely, proactive communication between all stakeholders
