In the Spotlight
As the MDP Lead for HSBC, my day-to-day role involves managing stakeholder expectations, driving project delivery with contractors and consultants, ensuring compliance with HSBC guidelines for procurement, design, and safety, and leading a team of project managers and QSs to deliver HSBC projects.
I was initially drawn to the company because of its appealing remuneration package, benefits, senior position, and the potential for career growth. With the recent rebranding from Arcadis to AIS, I have observed a rise in project opportunities not just in Singapore but also in other regions where Global Infrastructure Solutions Inc (“GISI”), our shareholder’s family of companies, are present.
A positive work culture, opportunities for growth and development and work-life balance.
The company is fostering a positive and supportive work culture, and its emphasis on flexibility, inclusivity, and openness is particularly impressive. I feel comfortable sharing their ideas and perspectives, which is essential for fostering innovation and creativity. Moreover, the company’s emphasis on communication and transparency is building trust between employees and management. The company’s flexible work arrangements, including working from home, demonstrate its commitment to work-life balance and trust in its staff. Overall, I feel that AIS is doing an excellent job of creating a positive work environment that supports its employees and fosters their growth and development.
Managing stakeholders is always a challenging aspect in the consultancy business.
My colleagues and team members!
What I like most about AIS is the senior leaders that staff can easily connect with.
The trust from the leadership in how I deliver results.
At AIS, I have been able to perform as an MDP Lead, thus increasing my program management experience.
My most satisfying project and significant achievement at AIS was successfully retrieving past due payments from clients, and effectively managing the relocation and renovation of the AIS office. Managing a project for your bosses can be extremely challenging, but it was gratifying to see it come to fruition.
My hobby is playing basketball and seeing drama unfold in beer sessions with colleagues.
Maintaining a balance between my career at AIS and my family is important to me. To achieve this, I prioritise my workload and ensure that I complete all my tasks before leaving the office for the day. This helps me to be more efficient and manage my time effectively. Additionally, I communicate with my family and keep them informed of any work-related commitments that may affect our schedules. I make sure to set aside quality time for my family and engage in activities that we enjoy together. This helps me to disconnect from work and recharge, allowing me to return to work feeling refreshed and more focused.
René Hillig, our Managing Director.
Most of my colleagues don’t know that I was underweight when I was young.
My advice for prospective AIS candidates is to prioritize work, align your own interests with the company, and network with people while maintaining positive relationships, effective communication, and building trust and respect. And above all, don’t forget to have fun!
