Local School Careers Fair

On Thursday 20th June Robert Hawker, Director of Marketing for Diamond Education Service, and Anna O’Sullivan, PA to the Chairman (John Gray) of Diamond Build Group, attended a careers fair at Harris Academy Tottenham.

Robert and Anna spoke to students aged between 11 and 17 about their roles within the Diamond Build Group, as well as their personal career journeys. Both answered questions from the students; for example: ‘Do you enjoy your job?’, ‘What qualifications are required for your role?’. ‘Did you have to attend university?’
Although not all students knew what careers they wish to pursue; it was a great opportunity for us to offer advice and guidance whilst promoting the construction industry.

A good sign of the interest was shown in the fact that we ran out of our apprenticeship and careers in construction leaflets!

The school was very happy too and in their thank you email they included some of the students’ feedback:

“They were kind and welcoming and taught me about apprenticeships” – Alex
“It helped me a lot” – Remi
“They told me things I was interested in” – Elisar
“They were nice and explained what I need to do” – Jean
“I hope that I will be like them!” – Lanna
“They were extremely kind and helpful and understood our potential” – Cristian-Andrei
“I really enjoyed all the conversations, it helped me really think about my future” – Davika
“Good explanation of what they doand how to get there” – Sian
“Very kind and informative” – Furkan
