What Does a Successful Graduate Construction Manager Look Like? (Essential Traits)

The MSc Construction Project Management course at the University of Bolton is recognised for quality, detail and depth within the sector. As a leading Manchester university that puts students, and their needs first, there’s nowhere better to train in this exciting field.

Now is a great time to improve your skills, as a number of hotspots are creating increasing graduate construction manager jobs and national leadership opportunities. Construction project manager graduates who have trained at master’s level will be in demand, but having the right soft skills will also be key.

Here are some of the important traits that every graduate construction manager should have:

Excellent communication

As a project leader, it is your job to liaise with, support and manage various teams of people. Good verbal and non-verbal communication skills are paramount, as is your ability to listen to others and take on board feedback. These skills not only apply to your in-house dealings, but will be necessary for handling external partners and suppliers.
