The bigger the challenge, the more you learn

Samuli Ojala - Project Manager, Finland

Samuli Ojala has been a project manager at Caverion in Helsinki since 2012. He is mainly responsible for electrical, telecommunications and security projects. At the moment, he is also the building systems manager in a major retail and office block project.

He has taken the Finnish matriculation exam and is also a qualified electronics technician. While working at Caverion, he decided to upgrade his degree and graduated from a Bachelor’s programme in electrical engineering in 2010.

I really like my work, it’s a lot of responsibility, but if I need help, my colleagues are always happy to assist. The most challenging projects are the ones you learn the most from. My earlier experience as an installer of IT and electrical systems has been very useful in my work as a project manager,” Samuli says.

Samuli is participating in a building systems manager mentoring programme which qualifies project managers to manage all the technical disciplines of a project.
