What you’ll be doing

This scheme will give you exposure to a variety of sectors, clients and projects within an extremely fast-paced environment. It’s a great opportunity to learn our business inside out across a wide range of technical areas. What’s more, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get actively involved with high profile client activities right from the start – making this a great place to progress, whatever your ambitions. We aim to give you valuable project experience during your 18-month programme, with each learning curve lasting between four and six months. You will start in the Programme Management Office, which will introduce you to the fundamentals of project governance and support before being mentored whilst operating as a junior project manager. This will give you invaluable experience in different project environments for diverse clients across a range of sectors.

Along the way, you will gain an understanding of project management lifecycles, processes and methodologies, supported by industry-recognised qualifications. To make it happen, you’ll actively involve yourself in project teams to understand their thinking and actions and lead discrete projects to demonstrate your learning. These projects could focus on different areas across a wide range of technical disciplines, and will stretch both your business and technical aptitude to the full. In return, we’ll look to you to develop expertise in all aspects of risk, issue and document management, financial control and planning, and to take full responsibility for the delivery of projects.

Why apply?

Right from the start you’ll enjoy direct contact with our clients, using your communication skills to the full – so you can expect extensive travel. In addition, you’ll also be sponsored to complete a University accredited Postgraduate course in Project and Programme Management, leading to certification by the Association of Project Management.

Essential skills

A broad understanding of project management tools and practices is essential – whether gained through academic study, work experience or self-study. Industrial placements or related work-experience are a definite advantage. We are looking for people with excellent influencing and organisational skills, ready to become trusted advisors to our clients as soon as possible. That makes strong analytical and problem solving skills and leadership potential a must.

Benefits

  • A starting salary of £28,000 (or £30,000 in London)
  • The opportunity for promotion, bonus and pay review during the 18-month programme
  • A training and development package that’s accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM)
  • Sponsorship for professional studies where appropriate, including course, tuition and examination fees and study leave
  • 25 days’ holiday plus the option to buy up to ten more
  • £5,000 interest-free loan
  • Private medical insurance
  • Pension plan
  • Relocation allowance
  • Income protection insurance
