The annual event included a careers fair and trade competitions and was designed to showcase the college students’ talent to local employers, give construction firms a voice in how the College shapes their curriculum and start conversations about job and apprenticeship opportunities in the local area.
Director, Stuart Denniss, Head of Marketing, Hannah Cook and Associate Director, Will Green, represented Waldeck at the Careers Fair.
Lincoln College Group Managing Director for Education and Training, Mark Locking, said:
“This week is a great example of our mission, to be led by employers in developing highly skilled and productive employees.
“It’s not about just giving young people qualifications, it’s much more about us nurturing the skills and behaviours that employers need so our students have the ability to walk into great jobs and build rewarding careers for themselves.
“A huge thank you to all of the employers who supported this event and to our staff who work so hard to create these opportunities for our students.”
Our Director, Stuart Denniss, is also a former Lincoln College student, he shared:
“This is really important to us as a company, it’s where I started and where I learnt the foundations for the career I have now. At Waldeck we’re building up the number of apprentices we take on and this is the perfect opportunity to see the talent that is available and to start building relationships with our future employees
“We were also delighted to be able to donate a DISTO Laser Measure and Tool Kit as two of today’s student competition prizes.”
