As a graduate project manager, I support and manage day-to-day activities of delivering capital projects for the business. My responsibilities include supporting a multidisciplinary project team on work packages/ activities that enable projects to meet set milestones, remove impediments to project delivery, as well as making sure projects deliver its regulatory outputs and commitment on time, in acceptable quality, and within budget.

What do you like about your role?

Delivering capital projects (construction) requires extensive stakeholder management. Every day, I get to collaborate & work with technical and engineering teams, regulatory bodies, third parties, customers etc, to deliver successful projects, which requires and present to me opportunity for continuous learning, and developing my problem-solving skills, teamwork, leadership skills, and communication skills.

I also get to work with senior project management professionals and other subject matter experts, allowing me to benefit from their expertise and industry experience, which has had a significant impact on my personal and professional development. The opportunity to deliver meaningful projects while working with diverse multi-disciplinary team is exciting for me.

How did your university course help you to get this job?

Studying at UWE Bristol for my MSC in project management put me at a better place in securing my role. Modules like project management fundamentals, project management methodologies and leadership came very handy for my transition from my 6 weeks internship to a Graduate Project Manager role, because I was able to demonstrate that I had the understanding and implementation of Project management competencies and skills.

What key advice would you give to current international students looking to start a career in the UK?

I’d say be proactive, do your research and ask questions. Don’t limit yourself. There are several opportunities out there to start/ transition into the career of your choice after studying the UK… Use all available resources your university can provide. Network, be proactive and most importantly ask questions and ask for help.
