What you will do in your working day

As a Project Controls apprentice you will work towards ensuring that our submarine programmes deliver successfully and safely to time, cost and quality: by critically analysing, interpreting and evaluating technical information to develop coding structures, cost and time objectives, robust recommendations and recovery plans for the project, programme or portfolio manager.  

Projects don't come more challenging, pioneering, and critical than ours. Controlling key aspects of a project is a critical element of how we project manage our business and projects. 

Our Project Controls apprentices are offered placements that enable you to be fully immersed against roles within across our Project Controls community to gain a significant understanding and application of project controls and building your knowledge on aspects such as: 

Project control procedures and methods including employer organisation management systems that are critical to project control - for example: quality control, configuration management, document and version control

The benefits, attributes, limitations and use of project controls related software used for key tasks such as planning and scheduling, cost management, cost and risk analysis, estimating, progress and performance monitoring and reporting.
