Developing our Staff through D2’s Career Path Framework

At D2 our people are at the core of everything we do, we pride ourselves in hiring the best talent and investing in their development and career path.

We are proud to announce that Lohith Vaddi and Jed Stoker from D2’s Project Management team recently completed their APM Project Fundamentals qualification with the Association of Project Management. As a business we understand the importance of development and provide clear guidance on career progression. In 2022 we launched our career path framework (CPF), a structured career path for all employees to build on their skillsets and advance in their journey. The CPF sets clear guidelines and expectations, which in turn motivates our teams to set and reach the goals required to move through promotions, whilst building knowledge and experience in their working life.

Well done Lohith and Jed , we look forward to watching your career journey with D2. If you would like to read more about the services that Lohith, Jed and the Project Management team can support you and your business with, please take a look at our Project Management section on the D2 website.

“Having completed my masters in construction project management, I embarked on a journey with D2 to further refine my expertise and make meaningful contributions to the Rail industry. The D2 career path framework highlighted the importance of acquiring the industry standard APM PFQ for my continued professional development. With this insight, I dedicated myself to the preparation and subsequently achieved success in the APM PFQ test. This examination deepened my understanding of pivotal concepts such as risk management, stakeholder engagement, and the intricacies of the project life cycle. I am enthusiastic about integrating these principles into real-world projects, ensuring both efficiency and top-tier results. I wish to extend my sincere appreciation to D2 and Faisal Farooq for not only guiding me on a professional level but also for fostering a nurturing, family-like environment. Their steadfast support has been a cornerstone in my personal and professional evolution. A heartfelt thank you to D2 for their faith in my abilities and vision.” – Lohith Vaddi

“Having joined D2 a year ago as a Graduate Project Manager – I felt ready to take the next step in my career as a project manager. D2’s Career Path Framework identified that I needed to undergo an external assessment with the APM in the form of the APM’s Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ). This is an industry standard qualification that asks you demonstrate that you have the theoretical knowledge to be a proactive project manager. The qualification covers such a wide variety of areas such as – Understanding project management and the operating environment, Lifecycles, Project Scope, Risk, Communication, Leadership and so much more. I want to thank D2 for their great support during my first year as a project manager. I couldn’t have asked for a better, more supportive and encouraging environment to continue to grow and develop.” – Jed Stoker
