Project Management Graduate

"I would encourage others to consider this Graduate scheme as I have experienced so many amazing opportunities and achieved so much in such a short period of time."

I was offered a position on the Highways England Project Management Graduate scheme in 2019. During my time at Highways England I have learnt, participated and experienced so much. Since joining the company, I have personally contributed to the delivery of two Major Project schemes which in times has been challenging yet extremely rewarding. I have met so many talented, inspiring and insightful individuals who have shaped my career journey and personal development.

The scheme has allowed me to study for my APM Qualifications and has given me the key skills to become a future Assistant Project Management. Highways England are supportive and invested in your career progression, whether this is via mentoring or enabling you to attend relevant training courses. My colleagues, managers and mentors are extremely supportive and empower me to achieve my goals.

My daily role includes liaising with key stakeholders/contractors, managing key risks on the project and leading my own work package. I would encourage others to consider this Graduate scheme as I have experienced so many amazing opportunities and achieved so much in such a short period of time.
