As a Project Manager, you will plan, manage, and coordinate a wide range of projects and teams. Creating a business case usually starts a project. In this, the goals and benefits of the project are outlined. Work cannot begin until the client approves this. The client will then need to tell you exactly what they want the project to achieve. Depending on the project, you may be responsible for estimating the cost and pricing, and determining the budget. You might use specialist software to plan all the project activities and determine when each one needs to be completed. It's your responsibility as a Project Manager to ensure that all members of the project team have the tools and resources they require to perform their duties. The client must be informed of the progress of the project on a regular basis and during the course of the project, you will keep track of the amount of money and time spent. In order to improve the performance of the team and the quality of the products or services, you will carefully review what went well and what didn't, at the end of each project.
As a project manager, you may be responsible for several projects at the same time and visiting different customers or sites may require you to travel. An internship is a great way to get started in this career. It is common for Project Managers to enter the industry after gaining experience in general business management and/or as members of specialist project teams. To become a Project Manager you'll need to be a good planner who can prioritise tasks, time-management skills, a logical approach to analysis and problem solving and to be able to think ahead and keep calm under pressure. You'll also need communication skills; you should be a good listener and you will also need to be able to speak well in front of groups of people, management skills; you should be able to lead and motivate others and most of all you'll need to be confident, self-motivated, adaptable, tactful and decisive.

Although opinions about which parts of England are in Northern England vary, it usually includes Cheshire, Cumbria, County Durham, Lancashire, Northumberland, Westmorland, Yorkshire, and parts of Lincolnshire. North England has many cities, but it also has many mountains and lakes. There are five major northern cities: Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Sheffield. While North England is quite far from London, there are excellent communication lines and motorways for easy travel around the country, and plenty of airports for international travel. There is no shortage of things to see and do in Northern England. From metropolises like Manchester to sleepy villages like Wark on Tyne, as well as rich history and world heritage sites, Northern England has much to offer.
