“Following my graduation with a BEng (hons) in Civil Engineering at the University of Nottingham in the Summer of 2014, I started my career with Ridge as a project manager based in the head office in Oxford. I have been working predominantly in the retail sector, a fast-paced and diverse area of project management. Starting my career at Ridge managing a large volume of short-cycled projects has been a brilliant learning curve, and I will shortly be transferring to a different project, to build my expertise in other areas.
Ridge is financially sponsoring me through my Assessment of Professional Competence to become chartered with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. The APC process is contributing towards my personal development as a project manager as well as helping me become a greater asset to my team and the company. I am currently recording my experiences within different competencies as evidence towards my chartered status, as well as attending regular interactive webinars and studying the relevant theoretical knowledge required.
My colleagues have been extremely helpful and friendly since I started, both in my team and across other disciplines. I have had technical, financial and emotional support during my time here to date, and have no doubt that this will continue throughout my career with Ridge.
