Junior Project Manager
Introducing Tom, the newest member of our SCS project team! Tom brings with him a wealth of qualifications and skills, enhancing our experienced project team even further.
3 years of studying at college and a year at the University of Huddersfield resulted in Tom achieving an amazing Double Distinction Star and a Distinction in his electrical and electronic engineering courses. Tom’s interest in these industries continued and following his time at Huddersfield he quickly secured a role as a Junior Project Manager within the electrical testing industry. Tom soon strengthened his knowledge and experience in these areas and confirmed his desire to further his career in these fields.
Like many others, Tom fell victim to redundancy during the Covid-19 pandemic but didn’t let this hold him back. Tom successfully obtained a new role as a Project Management Officer & Business Analyst for DWP. Here, he worked for the Data Warehouse, a specialist department looking at strategic solutions for storing, analysing, and interrogating large volumes of ‘citizen’ and ‘user’ data. Following the end of his contract we are proud of Tom for enrolling in the national Covid-19 vaccination programme and working to help others prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Tom’s career journey then led him to SCS. In the short period of time Tom has been with us, he has already become an integral member of the project team. Tom said, “When I saw the opportunity arise at SCS, I knew I could bring experience from my previous employment and learn new skills to adapt to my new role. I’m really enjoying being part of the team.”
In his spare time, Tom enjoys playing and watching football, F1 and travelling.
