Carpentry and joinery students had an employer talk from Colin Bain, Contract Manager for ENGIE on Tuesday the 14th of May.
Colin spoke about his own career path journey and discussed the various site operations that ENGIE are currently involved in.
He also held a question and answer session with the students regarding site work placements and other job opportunities.
The students gained valuable knowledge and found it very worthwhile. We are hoping that there will be a few students out on work placements very soon!
Engie are delighted to be working in partnership with Glasgow Kelvin College to provide Foundation Apprenticeship opportunities on our sites in Scotland. It is important that employers offer opportunities for young people to gain work experience and skills whilst at school to enable them to make informed career choices.
