Apprenticeship develops Sukhvir’s skillsApprenticeship develops Sukhvir’s skills

Sukhvir Sarai completed an apprenticeship part funded by Interserve Group Limited which has helped her progress in the company’s Support Services division.


Interserve, the international support services, construction and equipment services company, has more than 68,000 colleagues globally, with 39,000 employed in the UK. The organisation employs more than 700 apprentices and offers apprenticeships that range from entry level roles for those taking their first steps into a career through to higher level professional schemes available for colleagues to upskill and progress.

Sukhvir joined Interserve three-years-ago as a senior project coordinator in the Central Projects team on the Ministry of Justice and Home Office contracts. She recently completed her apprenticeship with the APM (Association for Project Management - the chartered body for the sector).

She said: “The APM qualification provides a fantastic academic foundation which integrates perfectly with the practical skills needed to be effective in the day job. It’s been challenging with a busy work schedule, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend the APM to others.”

Suki said the skills she’s learned have given her an in-depth understanding of what is required at each stage of a project’s life cycle.

She added: “I can now support my team to ensure the relevant controls are in place for delivering and reporting on our projects by adopting a standardised approach which in turn helps our overall efficiency. Our clients therefore benefit because we have a uniform way of working to a high-quality standard.”

Sukhvir became an assistant project manager on April 1st.

Jez Moore, head of projects, said: “Sukhvir worked hard balancing the tough demands of her job and study. It’s fantastic to see how she has progressed with Interserve and that the Company has invested in her development because supporting our colleagues to achieve their potential is crucial if we are to deliver the best possible service to our customers.

“Sukhvir is a real asset to Interserve and the Central Projects team.”
