How to become a Project Manager


Considering a career as a Project Manager?

In a nutshell, a Project Manager is responsible for the oversight of key projects and campaigns at a non-profit organisation. This covers everything from planning to initiating, designing, executing and monitoring the life cycle of a project. Working closely with your Project Coordinator, you'll delegate tasks to other members of the teams and keep a close eye on how things are progressing. As this is quite a senior role, you'll be in charge of looking after objectives, managing deadlines and ensuring all budgets are approved. In other words, you'll need to be prepared to wear many hats.
