EcoPark South team takes part in National Careers Week 2021

The EcoPark South team recently joined forces with client, North London Waste Authority, and Haringey Sixth Form College to celebrate National Careers Week.

Throughout the week, the joint team engaged with Haringey students aged 16-18, offering careers guidance and advice about the construction and waste sectors. The week comes at a crucial stage in the academic year to provide careers guidance and free resources to help support young people leaving education.

Across eight presentations with 60 students in attendance at each session, the range of topics that were covered included: CV writing and interviewing techniques; roles within construction, waste and engineering; pathways into these sectors; future apprenticeships and training opportunities on the project.

Engagement with Haringey Sixth Form College is the first of many outreach programmes with local education providers, and taking part in this week provided a fantastic opportunity to showcase the variety of employment opportunities that the industry has to offer to help inspire the next generation of experts.
