Project controls professional apprenticeship

Ensure the projects deliver successfully and safely to time, cost and quality

A project controls professional (PCP) is essential to complex projects in providing appropriate recommendations to influence the decision-making process. There is a growing demand for PCPs across the public and private sector to work on big projects such as HS2, Hinkley Point C, Dreadnought and Thames Tideway. You’ll be needed where the level of risk associated with the project is great enough to require independent assurance of any technical information. This could include information on areas such as costs, schedules, risk, statistics, probabilities, engineering drawings and plans. During the project controls professional apprenticeship, you’ll interact with people across the business and have regular contact with engineers, site managers and clients. Travel and flexible working may be required to support the project.
