Joining the Project Controls Academy was a career change for me, and I can 100% say it was a great decision. The PCA is a great introduction to a career in Project Controls. It has given me the opportunity to gain respected qualifications and receive knowledge from subject matter experts. Alongside the PCA training, I was placed on a six month contract with the Houses of Parliament which helped embed the skills I had developed and allowed me to gain project experience in an exciting environment. Since graduating to Consultant, I have been involved in several internal projects and have learnt about the business from a commercial perspective. I look forward to my next steps with i3Works and I’m excited for the future of this company.

The prospect of joining the PCA was extremely exciting because the opportunity to develop a career in an industry with such amazing potential for professional growth doesn’t come around very often. I was eager to move out of the hospitality industry and build a career, and the PCA offered everything I was hoping for and more.

I was initially apprehensive that my experience in business management would not be transferrable. However, the training provided was excellent and the support from highly skilled, senior staff helped me to develop skills in Project Management methodologies and Project Controls specialisms. This built on my existing skills and experience in business management.
