Contract Managers oversee projects performed in partnership between one organization and another. They are responsible for coordinating every aspect of the project from reviewing and approving contract terms to coordinating deadlines, approving budgets and more. Contract Managers work across many industries, including real estate development, health care, government agencies and more. They typically begin their careers as Contract Specialists and work their way up to a management role.
Contract Managers often hold a bachelor's degree in Finance or Business Management but employers may overlook this requirement if someone has extensive relevant experience. The most successful Contract Managers have exceptional time management skills, strong attention to detail, and are strong leaders.
