Work experience week

Preview

Last week we were once again joined by a student from our local secondary school, Bartholomew School, in Eynsham. Here he is on a visit to our yard viewing our excavator.

Matyas Gyuricza spent the week with various members of the team and learnt how industry works, hopefully developing a range of skills that will be useful in the future. The opportunity allows students to see how their school subjects are relevant to work and how they can be applied in the work place. It is a chance to prepare for adult working life and help them think more about career ideas and future training opportunities.

Matyas initially spent time with employees from Marketing and Bid development, HR & Training, Recruitment, Transport & Plant and Finance. The rest of the week was with the Demolition Department, Asbestos Removal Department, Quality Health Safety & Environmental and experience all areas of a busy and successful SME business.
