Being able to put the right people in the right places to get the job done and get home safely is a vital skill in both the armed forces and the construction industry. After all, big projects rely on strong project management, so if you’ve got the ability to hit targets, define the scope of projects, and organise resources you could make a real impact in this industry.
Working in project management gives you the chance to build on your experience and enhance your management skills, as well as explore new opportunities in a variety of sectors. Instead of earning medals, you’ll earn professional qualifications and play a vital role delivering important projects every day.
The skills you learnt during your time in the military can give you the edge in civilian project management. Not everyone can plan and analyse situations, build relationships, carry out risk assessments and create and adapt plans to suit ever-changing scenarios. So, don’t let them go to waste – put them to use building a new career for yourself.
