There is no set career path at UKPS. Our team is made up of people from different backgrounds, all with different skill sets and different interests.
They do, however, have one thing in common – passion. Passion to succeed. Passion to develop. Passion to progress. If you have a passion for the industry and want to create a successful career for yourself, UKPS is the perfect platform to fulfil your potential.
Jamie Charles joined UKPS as a Civil Design Engineer after being made redundant after a graduate scheme at a global engineering consultancy firm.
We could see his potential and desire to succeed. With his willingness to learn and his natural flair with clients, Jamie has flourished during his six years at UKPS and has progressed to Sales Manager. He has gone from strength to strength and his passion to succeed filters down through the company:
I like the adrenaline of the sale and I like it when the company succeeds. Here you’re not just a number, you’re an integral part of the company and their growth.
Azadeh Fardyar couldn’t speak English when she first joined UKPS as a Junior Designer, but it was clear that she had the spark we look for in our employees. We arranged English lessons for her and it became evident that she had a passion to learn.
Her desire to develop her knowledge and skills in her role has seen Azadeh become Design Manager at our London office. It is clear that she is not going to stop there, her thirst for personal and professional development will never be quenched:
I really enjoy the challenges and I don’t exaggerate when I say that every day you learn something new. I think in the engineering industry it is important to always develop your knowledge.
David Richards served for 22 years in the military before joining UKPS. He had an urge to start a new challenge and left the forces to pursue something new.
UKPS were impressed with his leadership skills and saw his passion to progress on a new career path, so hired him as a Project Manager with no previous experience in the industry.
David embraced the courses and training he received and has been a huge success. In seven years he has progressed to become Head of Construction for the West and doesn’t look like slowing down. He wants to see UKPS continue to develop in the future too:
Every year we exceed the targets that we are set which is pretty impressive. I see that continuing and UKPS becoming even better at what we do.
