Jessica Curtis

Shortly after graduating Edinburgh University with a BSc in Geography, I joined Atkins on the Junior Consultant Development Programme in June 2019.

To date I’ve held a few roles within the business, my first role being a PMO controller within Heathrow Airport Limited’s Cyber Programme. My role encompassed providing key support across multiple projects and facilitating the coordination of the programme logistics.

My second role, also in Cyber space, was as a Testing Project Manager within a Government Department. Here I worked closely with key stakeholders to provide a sustainable, enduring in-house capability to improve cybersecurity behaviours. Although by far the most challenging part of my career, this role was without a doubt extremely rewarding. In my current role I sit as Intervention Lead within the Management team to coordinate 3 cyber workstreams.

People are at the core everything that I do. I thoroughly enjoy working with a diverse range of people across both my organisation and clients; valuing and celebrating all those that surround me.

I’m delighted to be nominated for a Rising Star award.
