Also joined by James Grant, principal project manager from the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, the Lovell team spoke to over a hundred students on the day about opportunities available at Lovell and within the construction industry in general, including apprenticeships, training and all the roles available in the sector.
The students, aged 16-18, are currently studying at the college in disciplines including plumbing, building, level 3 construction, engineering and more.
Michael Saunders, Lovell operations manager, said: “The College of West Anglia is one of the largest providers of education and training in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire and focuses on getting its students ready for work or university. We are talking with them about inviting students to one of our development sites at King’s Lynn next year so that they can get first hand experience of a working construction site. There will also be an opportunity for the students to speak with the team and ask them questions about their career in construction. We really enjoyed meeting with students, answering questions and discussing employment opportunities and higher education apprenticeships with them.”
The Lovell team attending included training administrators, quantity surveyors and a technical coordinator.
