The Market for Project Directors & Managers
Core placemaking initiatives are transforming the global, national and regional markets. These initiatives require top owner-representative talent to manage these multi-billion-dollar projects effectively – yet there is an ever-diminishing pool of professionals capable of successfully leading such ambitious endeavours worldwide.
Senior Project Managers:
During periods of economic instability, governments seek to spur development by investing in projects that are quickly ready for implementation. These joint public and private efforts open up labour opportunities within cities while helping close infrastructure deficits and address housing deficiencies. As such, there is a heightened demand for project managers with the capacity to manage these initiatives successfully.
“We are seeing an increase in freelance work at the top end, where individuals have the competencies, confidence and demand in the marketplace to give them as much work as they want,”
Alan Macklin, Deputy Chairman of the Association for Project Managers.
