Project Management Graduate Programme at Blackbridge

Where: United Kingdom

Deadline: March 1, 2018

Type: Graduate

View more

About the role:

Getting things to happen how they should, when they should, and within budget, is both a science and an art. On this programme, you’ll learn exactly how it’s done. Lasting between two to four years depending on local business needs, and working to the Association for Project Management framework, you’ll experience placements on real projects and work to formal project management Chartership. And all the while, you’ll be mentored by some of the engineering sector’s top project management professionals.

Where you can join us:

Places on our Project Management graduate programme for Autumn 2018 are available within our Marine (Bristol or Leicester), Marine (Plymouth or Keynsham [Bristol]) and Aviation sectors. You’ll experience placements across our UK business and in some of our business areas, internationally. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.

What you'll be doing:

Expect to work on every kind of project – from design and manufacture to in-service support and capability enhancement projects. Whatever the task at hand, risks need to be identified and managed, stakeholder requirements satisfied, and the whole thing delivered on time and to budget.

Along the way, you’ll develop strong relationships with colleagues in commercial, financial and procurement functions over the course of the programme. That’s because watching our finances is as important as watching the clock when delivering a project. With that professional network behind you, you’ll have everything you need to tackle anything that comes your way.

What you'll get out of it:

We’ll help you become a true professional. And, as our programme is based on the Association for Project Management (APM) Body of Knowledge, you’ll get experience in all the key elements of the APM Competence Framework. Combine this with learning from the best project managers in industry and support from your own mentor and you’ll be ready to go for the APMP qualification. And let’s not forget a competitive starting salary of £28k-£30k.*

What you'll need:

A minimum of a 2:1 Bachelor’s or Master’s degree is essential. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment). (Note: for the Aviation programme, the entry requirements are a 2:2 degree.)]

*Depending on location, role and qualifications.

Salary: £30k per annum (and rising during fixed term contract)

Type of contract: Fixed Term Training contract – 2 years

About The Information Lab:

The Information Lab has a simple mission: to help people make sense of data. We believe that companies which use data well will have better futures than those that don’t and have been helping clients such as Coca-Cola, Unilever, Easyjet and UBS do so by specialising in the leading products for data visualisation and data integration - Tableau and Alteryx - since 2011.

About the Role:

As a consultant of The Data School, your experience will far and away surpass that of the ‘average’ training contract.

And yes, you’ll undertake this intensive and extensive training over 4 months in our fabulous Data School located just a stone's throw from St. Paul's Cathedral. And yes, you’ll even be given the chance to showcase your new found knowledge and skills with the some of the biggest and most recognised blue chip clients in the UK in a series of placements….

But there’s more to our training than that.

Because we don’t just teach technology for technology’s sake. And we don’t just teach in ‘any old way’. With support from your coaches and the wider team, you will learn broader skills about storing, managing and presenting data as well as personal skills to help boost your own confidence in becoming an exceptional consultant. And all within an environment which can only be described as extraordinarily inclusive and collaborative.

Don’t have any knowledge of Tableau or Alteryx currently? No problem. Our consultants come from all different walks of life and many had never heard of Tableau before they stumbled across us: you can meet some of them here. The one thing they do have in common however is that they are all passionate about problem solving. Especially problem solving with data and evidence. So if you share the same inquisitive nature and have a passion for getting to the truth by way of data, then get in touch as soon as possible to start your journey with us here:

Start Date:

Our next intake is scheduled to start in June however we are taking applications for places from anytime now. All those successful in their application, will be offered a two year fixed term contract within The Information Lab with a starting salary of £30,000 per annum, rising over the training period. We therefore can unfortunately only accept applicants for this role who have a right to work in the UK.

Have you applied before and weren't successful? No problem. We like those who focus on continuous improvement, so if you’d previously applied and were unsuccessful but are still keen for a career in data, this is your opportunity look at what you’ve done, build on it and submit again.

When I first found out about FDM I loved their model, specifically the focus on equipping candidates with the necessary skills.

Not only did FDM teach me the necessary skills, they placed me at a world class Bank in South Africa.I was excited to be amongst the few selected to be trained as a trade and risk management platform production support analyst, it was a perfect fit. I was at an advantage as this role and platform is a rare skill specific to the financial sector and internationally recognised, which has improved my career prospects even more.

With the opportunity available to me throughout the Graduate Programme, my hard work and career growth was recognised and I won employee of the month for August. My experience with FDM has been awesome to say the least.”
