A Career Less Ordinary

How does it feel to open a new hotel or organise the dry docking of a World War I Battleship?

What’s it Really Like?

“After graduating from the University of Portsmouth with a BA (Hons) Architecture, I decided to pursue a career in Project Management. I joined Artelia’s graduate programme as the company’s broad capability and international structure offered me the opportunity to gain experience across a range of sectors.

I quickly found my niche working as a Programme Manager within Artelia’s healthcare team, managing a multi-million pound, cross-year programme of estates rationalisation for Epsom & St Helier NHS Trust. Most recently I have become Master Programme Manager as the Trust prepares to develop a new Specialist Emergency Care Hospital (SECH).

Following Artelia’s APM accredited professional development programme, the mentoring and opportunities for learning on the job have given me the confidence to really push myself – I’m now going for APM Chartership as well as my MSP qualification.”

“Over the last year I have had the opportunity to work on three leisure centres in Slough, the refurbishment of Slough Ice-skating Arena, Sussex University student accommodation – 2000 bedrooms, three schools in Slough, Northern General Hospital in Sheffield and most recently taken on a key role as the PM for flood remediation works at a school in Northampton. Artelia has provided me with support and training every step of the way and the range of opportunities are endless if you are willing to grab them.”

“Since joining Artelia as a Project Administrator back in 2017, I have progressed my role to become an Assistant Commercial Manager in the Shell team, gaining valuable experience working on large-scale programmes like EV Charger roll-outs.

With Artelia’s financial and mentoring support I completed a Higher National Certificate in Construction Management and achieved a Merit. Building on this, as part of my personal development plan, I am now studying with London South Bank University for a Construction Management BSc (part-time). Studying remotely is certainly interesting, but hopefully it won’t be too long until I can attend the university in person and meet some of my peers who I’ve only been able to communicate with through a webcam!”

“The mentoring is excellent. I’m benefitting greatly from the time senior associates take to offer advice and explain new concepts to me. I don’t think you realise quite how much you are absorbing as you work day to day on different projects.”
