Akisam Mugezi

Project Management Apprentice 


What led you to the construction industry and FM Conway in particular?

I have always been a practical person. I wanted to do something that I loved and would wake up to everyday looking forward too, and I couldn’t think of anything better than construction.

I had three offers from three different organisations including FM Conway, but after learning more about the company I chose FM Conway because of its commitment to self-delivering on all projects. As an apprentice I always had the fear of being tied down to one training route and after having a look at what the company did, I knew I could grow my experience within the business across different divisions and departments. 
 

What would you be doing if you didn’t enter this line of work?

Probably back to full-time university or working in retail because I had lots of experience with that. 

What does a family business mean to you?

I am a family man, so this to me is amazing. Knowing my reputation could easily help a friend of family member join the business at some point is great. 

University or Apprenticeship? 

I was studying full-time at university before this apprenticeship and making the transition happened to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. 

What is your proudest achievement since joining FM Conway?

Winning two Berkeley Homes Awards - Best Exteriors Apprentice Award and Apprentice of the year 2018.

What are you passionate about outside of work?

Family.

What might someone be surprised to know about you?

I often like to bake.
