Project Controls Graduate Scheme
The search for LogiKal’s next generation of Project Planning & Controls Consultants has begun! Join a talented and supportive team of professionals, complete first-class training and help the largest engineering and construction projects in the UK succeed.
Positions are available in both our London & Birmingham teams, but please keep in mind that travel to client locations outside of your selected city may be required from time to time. For the travellers amongst you, there may even be future opportunities to join our Australia and Hong Kong teams.
What is LogiKal…and what are Project Controls?
LogiKal is an international consultancy that specialises in providing Project Planning & Controls services to clients. Proudly awarded Project Controls Consultancy of the Year 2020, we play an integral part in the successful delivery of projects across a range of sectors in the construction industry including rail, defence, water and residential. Since being established in 2002, our team has grown to over 100 consultants across 6 offices in the UK, Australia and Hong Kong.
If by now you are still wondering what is meant by ‘Project Controls’, then don’t worry! Put simply, they are the analytical processes used to manage project time and cost, enabling informed decision-making, and ultimately project success.
We don’t require any prior knowledge or experience, as our experts will teach you the technical bits. We are looking for graduates with a keen interest in improving the delivery of major projects and excellent communication skills (the most important thing for any consultant).
Sounds interesting…and what’s the company culture like?
Everyone at LogiKal shares a commitment to the LogiKal Way, which empowers us to work collaboratively and most importantly, enjoy our work life! We are looking for graduates who also want to get involved with life at LogiKal on top of client commitments. From our annual company ski trip and summer away days, to monthly team meeting and last minute after-work drinks (have we mentioned that our office has free beer taps yet?), we enjoy getting together and celebrating our successes.
