We provide a full spectrum of project management services, whether it is advising a client on a new and evolving idea, preparing a business case or developing an organisational framework capable of delivering huge business transformation.

Dynamic partners. Creative thinkers. Problem solvers - Mace Consult

We live in a world that never stands still.

Client focus is at the heart of what we do. Our first step is to identify and fully understand what our clients are trying to achieve – we get under the skin of their vision, goals and values so we can realise them in the project or programme. As an agile, focused and flexible partner we adopt a value-driven strategy to define and articulate project objectives, before identifying the most effective means to deliver.

Regardless of the scale or complexity of a project, we employ and refine our systems and processes to provide control, governance and transparency from inception to completion. In every decision we make, we challenge and work diligently to find the most efficient and cost-effective outcome. 

During your placement in Project Management in the Transport sector, you will work on complex Transport programmes working closely with clients and consultants through key stages of the construction lifecycle. You will gain exposure to both consultancy and construction delivery

Responsibilities will include:

  • Working with clients to establish their needs
  • Being involved in the preparation of tender documents

  • Monitoring and reporting on budgets and cash flow
  • Monitoring any potential risks to the project and looking for mitigations where possible
  • Monitoring and reviewing of health and safety practices
  • Contribute to successful railway system integration through involvement of relevant disciplines and parties
  • Monitoring the quality of works completed on site and helping to deal with any issues that need resolving
