We were delighted to welcome a number of Transition Year students to our headquarters in February. The purpose of the visit was to give the students an insight into engineering as a potential career option.
We had a packed agenda for the week which included presentations from representatives of our engineering departments covering Process, Mechanical, CSA, Electrical, Project Management, Project Controls and Revit/3D design. These presentations gave the students a good insight into the diverse nature of engineering design, and the many career opportunities it offers. On Friday each of the students gave a presentation on everything that they had learned during the week.
All-in-all it was a great week for everyone involved. We hope the students enjoyed their experience and are inspired to pursue a future career in engineering with Tandem Project Management Ltd.

reports that as of November 2019, there were 10,448
people homeless in Ireland. This figure includes
adults and children. The number of homeless families has increased by
over 300% since November 2014 and more than one in three people in emergency
accommodation is a child. These numbers do not include people who are ‘sofa
surfing’, availing of domestic abuse refuges or sleeping rough.
provide long term housing to people at risk of homelessness and a resettlement
service to people moving out of homelessness and into a new home. They provide
advice and information to identify the best available supports and options, in
the first instance to avoid homelessness, but also to those recently homeless.
Focus Ireland provide a youth housing and after care service to vulnerable
young adults coming out of state care with no options for housing.
This year Tandem will
act as Business Network Ambassadors for Focus Ireland, participate in housing
maintenance and remediation projects, attend events and undertake fundraising
activities. Tandem are proud to partner Focus Ireland and to play a part in
stemming the tide of homelessness in Ireland.
We look forward to a
worthwhile and engaging partnership with Focus Ireland for 2020.

As part of our CSR Programme, Tandem
Project Management Ltd.’s engineers volunteered for the
Engineers Ireland STEPS Young Engineers Award Programme.
The Engineers Ireland STEPS
Programme is a non-profit outreach programme that promotes interest and
awareness of engineering as a future career. The STEPS Young Engineers Award
2020 is a competition that asks 3rd and 4th class students all over the country
to design an engineering project that would help their community.
As part of the award
curriculum, our engineers visited participating schools in Cork and Waterford
during the week 25th – 29th November. The visit included a presentation from
the engineers on engineering as a career and the students then presented their
projects to the engineers. After the presentations, it was time for fun and
learning with games designed by STEPS to open the students minds to engineering
in their local environment and to the processes involved in a design and build
project. It was a fantastic opportunity for young students to become more aware
of engineering in the world around them and to see what it feels like to walk
in the shoes of an engineer.
The level of engagement from
the students was enlightening, our engineers reported very bright young minds
concerned with topics such as homelessness, climate change and single use
plastics pollution. The experience of presenting to students, broadening their
understanding of what engineering is, hearing their ideas and discussing
practical ways that they can move forward with their projects was heartening
for our engineers, they all reported a desire to get involved again next year.
Tandem wish all the students luck with their entries for the Young Engineers Award, finalists will be announced during Engineers Week, February 29th – March 6th, 2020.
Tandem Project Management Ltd. wishes to extend a very warm welcome to Maria Costello, Gary O’Leary and Evan O Donovan who joined our 2019 Advance Graduate Programme. Advance is a three year programme that aims to give graduates an insight into all aspects of the business in a structured and measured manner, to ensure graduates achieve as broad an experience as possible, on both a professional and personal level in these crucial first years of their career. By the end of the programme, graduates will not only have gained significant experience in their chosen discipline, but have gained exposure to other disciplines, client sites and many aspects of the project life cycle which will equip them best with driving their careers further in the direction of their choice, while further building on the knowledge gained to date.
“Since having joined the Tandem Advance graduate programme in September, I’ve spent the last 3 months on a pharmaceutical plant as part of a CMT and CQV team. Everyday has been a new enjoyable experience into the ever-changing world of engineering. Having the support of all Tandem staff during this period of adjustment into a new job has made everything that bit easier and I will be looking forward to meeting those whose paths I haven’t crossed already in the coming few months.” Evan O Donovan
“My time on the Tandem Advance Graduate Program has allowed me to gain invaluable experience both in office and out on site. Being on site has given me the opportunity to take a hands on approach to work and learn as much as possible about the projects I’ve been on. This is important as a young engineer to see the execution of a project and apply what you learn to Design work in the office. The greatest strength of Tandems Advance Graduate Program is the engineering experience you gain which allows you to develop your skills as an engineer.” Gary O’Leary
“My time on the Tandem graduate programme has been extremely beneficial. The Tandem graduate programme gives me the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects across a multitude of sites. Being on site has allowed me to gain hands on experience on projects and gives me a greater understanding of processes. I will not only spend time onsite but also in the design office rotating between the process, electrical and building services departments, where the knowledge I have gained from being onsite will be applicable. The broad spectrum of experience the programme offers allows me to witness all aspects of projects, from the initial design stage through to completion. The experience I am gaining on the programme will no doubt be invaluable to my career as a process engineer.” Maria Costello
We currently have opportunities for Graduates with qualifications in:
Chemical Engineering, Process Engineering and Bioprocess Engineering
Civil and Structural Engineering
Building Services Engineering
If you are interested in applying for our Advance Graduate Programme or if you require more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
