1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My job title is PMO. My daily tasks include project report and liaising with senior project managers. I have many different daily interactions with senior members. My responsibilities vary from client report or ensuring risks are updated correctly. My day involves sending lots of emails and sitting in plenty of meetings.

I have gained a number of qualifications during my time on the course. There is plenty of opportunity for internal training courses with plenty of different modules and we sometimes have the opportunity for external training days.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy the team I work at university and whilst at university. There is plenty of opportunity to change teams. I believe the course has met my expectations.
4. How valued do you feel by CGI?
I regularly get appreciation from my senior managers and they are always happy to praise me in newsletters and I once received an recognition award which included an £20 amazon voucher.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
My programme is very well run however finding time to study whilst working can be hard so I have to do all my reading in the evening during my own time. My project are supportive of my programme when deadlines or exams are due.

My training provider are very good, I received a tutor who I can talk to if I encounter any issues. They provided all my books so I can complete all the readings at no expensive to myself.

Salary is obviously a topic where people believe they need more. I believe with the university costs being covered and any extra travel being covered my living style is at a level I would expect for the programme I am on.

There are plenty of opportunities outside of work if you are a member of the sports and social programme. We regularly play football and travel the world to play in football tournaments. There are committees who ensure there are activities arranged in order to help people to socialise.
