A Project Coordinator or Administrator works closely with project team members, managers and leads to help deliver major organisational projects efficiently.
The Project Coordinator manages the administrative tasks from the beginning to the end of a project, such as recording of information, document distribution, report collation, maintaining and monitoring project plans, project schedules, work hours, contractor information and budgets and expenditures. They organise, attend and participate in stakeholder meetings, document and follow-up on important actions and decisions and ensure adherence to deadlines to help keep project timelines on track.
A Project Coordinator needs excellent organisational, communication and relationship management skills. Project Coordinators often need formal qualifications or several years of experience to work across a range of industries using their expertise in IT implementation, change management, engineering and construction, marketing and business management or administration.
