I joined Doris in September 2016, after graduating from Northumbria University, studying Information Technology Management for Business. When I first joined Doris I was placed on my first assignment at a UK Utilities Company as a Junior Project Manager. My role involved IT coordination for property. I was involved in a number of projects relating to the maintenance and refurbishment of customers buildings on and offsite. I am now on my second assignment at an Insurance company as a Junior Project Manager working on the Year 2 Renewals project. My role involves updating a variety of plans and reports, liaising with various departments to collect their work stream updates and tracking the progress for all of the insurers providing claims, making sure that all elements of the process are running on schedule. I have recently gained my APM Project Fundamentals Qualification through Doris this has helped to improve my core PM skills and helped me gain a better understanding of the project lifecycle. In my spare time I am often visiting friends and family in various cities across the UK, as I am originally from Middlesbrough, relocated to Newcastle for university and now live in Manchester.
