The construction management career path can sometimes demand long hours, but the perks of this rewarding profession are totally worth it.

At the University of Bolton, we offer a number of undergraduate and postgraduate courses to support students pursuing the construction management career path. Giving you a hands-on and focused way to train and develop transferable skills in preparation for the workplace.

While project-based working can sometimes mean extended shifts to get the job done on tight deadlines, the role of a construction manager is generally within sociable hours. And there are plenty of perks that could make this line of work even more appealing!

Good starting salary (and room for growth)

A top reason for embarking on a journey on the construction management career path is earning potential. According to Prospect.ac.uk, starting salaries typically range from £26,000 to £33,000, but can be much more.

Experienced managers can earn in excess of £50,000, while senior and chartered construction managers earn in the region of £70,000+. With so much space for personal and professional growth, you’ll never feel like you’ve hit the glass ceiling.

You can also go into consultancy, helping clients oversee and assess construction projects, boosting your earnings even more.
