Work Experience with Slough and Eton School

Osborne Property Services with partners Slough Borough Council have been working with a local school offering work placements for their Year 10 students.

With a current skills shortage in the industry, a key aim through our work in the local community is to encourage young people to consider a career in construction and realise the variety of roles that are available.

Three students joined our Repairs and Maintenance Team in Slough working with our plasterers, carpenters and electricians. With our Operatives, they visited resident’s homes carrying out a variety of repairs and improvements to properties.

Another student focused on business administration and learnt about the work of many departments in our office in Slough; including the contact centre, compliance and community investment.

One of the students, Liandra said: “I just wanted to say a big, big thank you for taking me through this journey at Osborne. I have learnt so much from various people and lessons that I can take into my future career.”

The placements with Osborne have improved all of the four student’s confidence, helping them to learn skills for their future careers and also to inspire them with what is possible after they leave education.

Community Investment Manager Claire Giacobbe said: “This is the first placement we have held with Slough and Eton School and it has been a great success, all four students have grown in confidence and learnt new skills with the support of our  team”

We look forward to working with Slough and Eton School on further work placements for their students.
