What you will do in your working day
The work experience and degree will provide the skills and experience in; planning & scheduling, data assurance, analysis techniques, estimating, progress & performance measurement and forecasting, amongst others.
We, as a business, are looking to develop the project controllers of the future who can architect and work together to mobilise and deliver a project control environment for some of the most complex national and international projects in the world.
Working in Project Control means you will be the beating heart of a given project, ensuring that the plans, schedules and risk management is in place for the project. Analysis of the progress against those plans and schedules will be your responsibility; providing regular updates and recommendations to the wider project team.
A Pilot cannot fly without detailed and up-to-date information from the Navigator; and you would be that Navigator in the project world.
The understanding of the projects performance, looking at trends, highlighting potential issues, forecasting prospective outcomes, identification of mitigating actions and recommendations to the project team will enable the project to be delivered to time, cost and quality (the key facets of any project). The Project Control Programme will develop, test and mature all of these skills.
