At Magna, we’re keen to support the talent of tomorrow. One of the ways we do this is by working with local schools.
Colleagues from our building safety and compliance team recently visited Bridgwater & Taunton College to deliver a presentation to students who are studying for their construction, electrotechnical, plumbing, heating, and carpentry courses.
The team gave an insight into their careers and an overview of the work that we do, as well as sharing the range of opportunities that we provide for people to join us at Magna.
Stephanie Lloyd-Foxe, Head of Building Safety and Compliance at Magna, said “I’m passionate about young people and careers, and it’s fantastic to work for such a forward-looking employer where talented people enjoy rewarding and fulfilling careers.
“The housing and construction sectors are currently facing a significant skills shortage, so it’s vital that we engage with young people to support their learning and development and promote the many opportunities available.”
“It was a pleasure to be able to meet the students and present to them, sharing our personal journeys, and it feels great to be able to provide support wherever possible to students starting out on their studies and their careers.”
In the first two years of the students’ studies, they’re required to spend 315 hours working with local employers to gain practical skills and experience.
Stephanie added: “We’re delighted to be able to offer placements for some of the students, enabling them to complete their courses and inspire them to build a career in the housing sector.”
We’re proud to be able to offer opportunities for everyone to join us in creating great homes together. Whether you’re just starting your career, or you’re an experienced professional, we’ve got a role for you.
