I joined Transport for London in 2013 as a Project Management Apprentice and completed a two year scheme, which consisted of four six-month placements around the organisation. The placements included two multimillion pound projects, Bond Street Station Upgrade and the ‘Fit for the Future’ project, which was part of the Station Works Improvement Programme. During this time I also achieved a Level 4 Diploma equivalent to the Association of Project Managers – Project Management qualification. Through this scheme I contributed to different areas of the business, and different stages of the project lifecycle; it provided me with an opportunity to build strong networks as well as hone my problem solving and team working skills. Currently I work as an Assistance Project Manager within the Renewals and Enhancements Department. I project manage three Mid-Tunnel Ventilation Shaft (MTVS) projects with a mechanical and electrical focus, and a combined EFC of £7.2m. I lead our in-house, multi-disciplinary design team, and coordinate works with our Principal Contractor on site to provide increased cooling benefits to the Jubilee Line. This is achieved by installing new ventilation systems that allow trains to run more frequently. The MTVS upgrade projects act as an enabler for the World Class Capacity Upgrade Programme, a major programme for London Underground and a key target of the Mayor’s Transport Plan, improving public transport for the population of Greater London.
