Bradford Manufacturing Weeks
Manufacturers Panel at Beckfoot Upper Heaton
As part of Bradford Manufacturing Weeks a group of business people from local companies and organisations visited Beckfoot Trust students at Beckfoot Upper Heaton.
Students from Years 9 & 10 from Beckfoot School, Beckfoot Oakbank and Beckfoot Upper Heaton were given an insight into routes into manufacturing and recruitment, with ideas in how to better pursue a career in manufacturing and other areas. Students posed a wide range of questions to the visitors and were given detailed insights into the businesses represented.
Those attending the panel included:
Mike McColgan - MD, Ex-Pressed Panels
Dave Calder - Site Director, Solenis
Matt Booth - Director, E3 Recruitment
Neville Kildunne - Works Manager, Christeyns
James Woffendin - Borg Warner
with Gemma Sherborne from LCF Law hosting the event and Nick Garthwaite & Laura Dooher with the support of Bradford Chamber of Commerce facilitating its organisation.
Students gained a good insight into the panel's background, the work their companies do and the potential ways to be successful with their own future employment opportunities, at this critical stage in planning for their futures.
