Maxiflow were a featured employer at the recent Employers Evening at Mid-Cheshire College.
Featuring a mix of local businesses and national companies, the event was an opportunity for students and school-leavers to discuss their career prospects with potential employers.
Many different industries were present at the event, from banks and insurance brokers to charities and organic food wholesalers, offering a wide variety of choices to the young crowd.
Representing the multifaceted branches of the construction industry, Maxiflow had a very strong showing at the event.
On-hand to offer advice and guidance were several Maxiflow team members, who graciously volunteered their time to aid the upcoming generation.
Maxiflow Contracts Director Warren Beatty and Manager of Mechanical & Electrical Services John Hughes held court on a range of topics from their years of experience, both from out in the field and from their management perspective.
Building Foreman Jeremy Brandreth and Joinery Specialist Aaron Ankers offered a personal perspective on the subject of apprenticeships, due to Aaron being a former Maxiflow apprentice and Jeremy his mentor.
We were greatly encouraged by the interest we received from the young people we spoke to at the evening.
A number of students commented that they expected the event to be “very corporate” and they were pleasantly surprised that employment opportunities in our sector were represented.
We were delighted to discuss how rewarding a career utilising practical skills can be. With so many budding young professionals at the event, we hope we have helped to inspire a few students.
We also distributed our literature and spoke to careers advisors at Mid-Cheshire College and the Northwich Job Centre, providing new avenues for students to get in touch with a successful construction company and find out more about our world.
