Time management skills are essential in any working environment. Having good time management skills means that you can allocate the right amount of time to different tasks enabling you to be more productive in your work. Many employers will look for specific examples of where you used your time management skills to benefit your productivity. Time management skills are ‘soft skills’ which can be transferred across different job roles and used in any industry.

Applying your time management skills in work scenarios can have a positive impact on both your own and your colleagues’ working lives.

Time management in different employment sectors

At PPR, we have in-depth knowledge of several professional sectors. In our experience, time management skills can be used to solve issues and improve productivity in various ways within an industry-specific scenario. Here are some examples of where time management is essential within our specialist areas.

  • Construction – Within the construction sector, certain activities must be completed before another job can commence eg. Bricklaying before timber work. Forward planning and time allocation are therefore essential in any construction project.
  • Industrial – From warehouse organisation to delivery schedules and logistics, working within an industrial setting requires outstanding time management to ensure productivity is continually maximized.
  • Airport – An airport is a highly time-sensitive environment. Whether you’re working in an air-side or land-side role, good time management skills will be essential for the airport to continue to function.
  • Rail – Whether it’s railway maintenance work or planning and development of new rail networks, all railway engineering and planning work will be governed by strict time scales and schedules.
  • Telecoms – In the UK alone, the broadband network is continually growing and becoming faster and more complex. To ensure that all telecoms projects run as planned, intricate schedules must be developed and adhered to at every stage.
  • Mechanical & electrical – This industry is vast and diverse. Whether you’re working on lighting, renewable energy, ventilation or any other sub-sector, these specialist areas are intrinsically linked. Therefore, excellent time management skills are essential to ensure a smooth working process is achieved.
