Priang - Rotork Project Manager, UK

Project Manager, UK

“It is truly rewarding working for the world leader in valve actuation technology. With many innovative projects in the pipeline it is exciting to be a Project Manager at Rotork.”

I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol, graduating with an MEng degree in 2009. I entered my first engineering role as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Associate working for both the University of Wolverhampton and a manufacturing firm based in Birmingham. During this time I attained a Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership, which granted me membership to the Chartered Management Institute and I also completed PRINCE2 training.

Upon completion of a two year KTP programme, I joined Rotork as a Nuclear Engineer. The range of knowledge and experience I gained enabled me to reach Chartered Engineer status. I then moved to Advanced Applications Engineering where I designed and project managed the delivery of an indicator module for our flagship actuator IQ3, working with a team in Shanghai, China. The support from Rotork has enabled me to transition from engineering to project management, and I now manage multiple projects across different teams. Rotork are also supporting me with a PhD which I am undertaking at UWE on a part-time basis.

My journey has been about technical and practical skills, as well as interpersonal skills, managing stakeholder expectations and planning ahead to see projects through to completion.
