Work Experience with Stepnell – More than Hard Hats and Hi Viz

Location: East Midlands

Salary: N/A

Contract: N/A

Monday 25 March to Thursday 28 March 2024

When people think about construction they tend to picture those working in the trades, forgetting that there is also a wealth of support and management also involved in the industry.

We are inviting students from Y10-Y13 for a 4-day work experience at our office in Chilwell, Nottingham, to find out about professional roles in construction management such as site and project management, quantity surveying, marketing, IT, bid writing and design.

Over the week the students will learn about our company and routes into construction including apprenticeships and higher apprenticeships. They will have the opportunity to meet our people to find out about their roles and career journeys, and will complete a project and a practical activity to demonstrate teamwork, leadership, design and planning skills.

How to apply

Applications can be made by email. Students should submit a CV, if they have one, and a cover letter explaining:

  • the name of their school or college, and what they are currently studying (GCSEs, A levels, BTEC, T levels)
  • their next steps and future plans if they know (college, university, apprenticeship, preferred career)
  • why they would like to do this work experience (they should demonstrate here that they have done some research into Stepnell).

The cover letter should be co-signed by a parent or guardian confirming their consent to the work experience.
