Tom Seymour - Higher (Project management)

BEST THING ABOUT ROLLS-ROYCE
The variety of business is definitely of the most enjoyable and exciting aspects for me. To be given the opportunity to work with Aero-Engines, Marine, Energy and Nuclear - all within my first three years of full time work - is great, and an experience you'd struggle to find anywhere else.

MOST EXCITING WORK SO FAR
All aspects of the work are interesting. It's easy to learn how projects are managed through College or training courses, but to actually get involved in live projects from day one is great. You start to learn about just how different Project Management is when you put it into practice - and the simple things that can make the biggest difference to the dynamics of a project.

TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS
The amount of training has been unbelievable. I had an induction period with the other apprentices on the Project Management scheme where I was put on a number of interesting courses that have been so useful to me. I'm now studying towards a Foundation degree accredited by Lancaster University as part of my apprenticeship, and will go on to get my BSC in Project Management once I have finished the FD.
