Kier Group

On Wednesday 23rd January Jake Ogden and Sheryl  Moore of Kier, a leading infrastructure, buildings, developments and housing developer met with Year 12 and 13 students to explain paths into the construction industry. Jake described his day-to-day experience having graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in civil engineering and Sheryl informed the audience of the astonishing range of occupations and disciplines within the industry in general.

Stereotypical images of burley men in ill-fitting clothing, bellowing disparaging comments and loud whistles from high scaffolding structures were effectively interred in antiquity. The presentation portrayed an exciting, ultra-modern, acutely hi-tech industry with relies upon highly motivated individuals who can expect considerable rewards for their efforts. Hopefully, they event proved to be a significant pointer for those that attended.
