Inspiring the Next Generation in Dacorum

Osborne recently supported Connect Dacorum at their second annual Dacorum School Careers Fair.

Established in 2006 by local businesses, Connect Dacorum is a membership organisation where businesses engage and support the local community. The group remove some of the barriers which could prevent businesses from getting in touch with the community.

A large number of other service providers attended, where we all had the chance to interact with students from secondary schools and colleges from across the local area. At the event, over 900 students attended with over 120 directly interacting with our stand.

We had a number of elements to our stand including a game where students could guess the wage of a variety of roles in construction and were also able to provide tips on CV writing, mock interviews, work experience and apprenticeships.

It was great to speak to the next generation and we were able to offer an insight into the wide variety of careers that Osborne can offer.

We are looking forward to working with Connect Dacorum in 2020.
