Our Commercial and Business Development Manager, Darren Reeve, and Quantity Surveyor, Hannah Shepheard, recently joined with a number of local businesses to bring a wide range of occupations to life, for the pupils of Kings Lynn’s St Edmund’s Academy.
Our stand at the school’s annual careers fair had a stream of visitors finding out about the various construction trade and management roles, which pupils could begin to consider. Our “electrician’s steady-hand” game, provided by our in-house specialist division ABS Electrical, also sparked a wave of interest with the Key Stage 2 children. Headteacher Jill Graver said “This was a great experience for the children, giving them the opportunity to listen to presentations, ask questions and find out information about the range of employment opportunities in our local area”. The initiative was arranged by our team who are currently undertaking an £8million project in North Lynn to design and build a replacement school and nursery at Greenpark Academy.
