Atos start date: 2013
Scheme: Higher Level - Project Management
My job summed up:
Since completing my apprenticeship in 2015 I have progressed to the next stage of my career at Atos. I currently work as a PMO (Project Management Office) Co-ordinator on a highly-demanding UK account. Day-to-day my role is ever-changing, entailing new tasks each week. I work in a mixed team, supporting project managers across over 80 active projects for four different customers.
I’m also part of the Atos Future Project Management Scheme, which has me on the way to being a fully-fledged Project Manager. This gives me the opportunity to work with a wide range of people from the customer end user to the account management team; while also allowing me to test my management skills of a team.
What impact do you feel you’ve had since joining?
Joining as one of the first Project Management apprentices; I believe I have had a large impact on the future of the scheme, showing it to be a successful career path. I’ve been able to apply my own opinions and approach to various areas of work which has led to improvements for myself and others.
What have you learned since starting you’re apprenticeship?
Over two years, I’ve learnt so much about work and myself. I’ve gone from an apprentice with little experience, to become one of the most knowledgeable members of the team, teaching what I have learnt to new apprentices and graduates.
On a personal level, my confidence in talking to a customer or running an account meeting has improved significantly and has allowed me to thrive.
