Introducing Our Young Engineers

11 Nov

For many years, Groundforce has been supporting young engineers by providing employment, training and education in many forms. Over the last five years in particular, we have sponsored a steady stream of budding engineers through university on a part time basis. I’m very proud of the years of dedication and hard work that my young colleagues have invested and now that investment is really bearing fruit.

Over the next few years we’ll see each of our young engineers graduating in a seemingly endless avalanche of robes and mortarboards! Congratulations are in order for Steven Lloyd who has just graduated this summer with first class honours. Following him will be Chris Wilson, due to graduate summer 2014; then Daniel Cuthbert, who already holds an HND and is due to graduate his BSc summer 2015. After that is Paul Holt, due to graduate summer 2016; Billy Freeman, studying on a subsidiary course ready to start university proper in September 2014; and last but not least, Ismail Hussein, who is with us on a placement year and will graduate in summer 2015.

Buoyed by this success story, we’ve decided to formalise our commitment to developing young engineers through our StudyLink programme. This project aims to go beyond simply supporting our own engineers through their studies and hopes to offer our experience and expertise in engineering to the many students and graduates in our local area, working with universities and colleges to promote civil engineering and temporary works. I hope I’ve stirred your interest, so watch this space for more news on this project as it develops.
