What does a Project Coordinator do?

Project coordinators work with a project manager to better ensure the project they are hired to do is finished on time, correctly, and within the client’s allotted budget. As the keepers of the smaller tasks and moving parts within a project, they also oversee the day-to-day progression of the project and keep an eye on its administrative tasks.

Project coordinators work on their specified projects in conjunction with other team members and create an agreed-upon timeline and schedule. They check in with the team to receive updates on the progress throughout the life of the project, and to ensure that initial goals and priorities remain intact. They often use spreadsheets to track a project’s timeline, the budget, and any other relevant information. They are often called upon to track and organize the financial files and documents, contracts, and any reports or invoices. Project coordinators also perform various administrative tasks, including the ordering of office supplies, invoicing vendors, and bookkeeping, and have a bachelor’s degree in business, communications, or related fields.
