' This is the first time Balfour Beatty have taken part in Dream Placement and it has been a very positive experience for us. The project management by the Centre for Leadership Performance combined with their school contacts resulted in very high calibre applicants. The week's experience enabled us, as a company, to see the construction industry through their eyes and showed us which areas and opportunities we need to communicate more effectively to show the next generation of employees what a great place construction is to work in.

Alec had a great day 2 of his @CentreforLP #dreamplacement yesterday up in Edinburgh with the insolvency department!


 
What a week! We really enjoyed having Alec here for his Dream Placement — here's what he thought...

My Dream Placement at Dodd & Co

Alec
Alec giving a presentation

After successfully applying for the Dream Placement scheme, I was selected to take part in a week's placement with Dodd & Co at their Carlisle office. The placement interested me as I wish to forge a career in the financial sector and the advice and experience on offer from Dodd & Co was invaluable in bettering my understanding of the industry.

My week at Dodds was planned prior to my placement by Directors Alison and Jeanette, and HR adviser Nicky together with myself to ensure that my time in the office was spent experiencing every aspect of the company.

Tom with some of our senior managers and directors

Thomas spent time during the day with 3 members of the Engineering Team: Colin McBeath, Andrew Clarke and Steve Lynn. Each gave Thomas a brief overview of their career and qualifications. He was taken through the Through Life Engineering Life Cycle (from User Requirement to Disposal) and the organisation / responsibilities of the Engineering team – as well as its relationship with other functions.

... Tom has been asking lots and lots of questions and the feedback I have received from my colleagues has been OUTSTANDING.

Tom is currently in a meeting with some high level colleagues at the moment (too high a level for me to be invited!!!)

Jackson and Sian

Students with ambitions to work for Choose South Cumbria partner GSK have gained a first-hand insight into the business.

Barrow Sixth Form College students Jackson Readett and Sian Dawes completed Dream Placements with GSK Ulverston last week. Both students are studying A-Levels in chemistry, biology, maths and geology. Jackson is applying for an analytical chemistry laboratory apprenticeship at GSK and was interested to see work in the labs that was related to his own chemistry studies.

Want your organisation involved in the next Dream Placement?

Register Organisation For the host companies taking part in the Dream Placement scheme, this is a chance to connect with the young people of the county and show them how exciting and challenging working life can be. The Centre for Leadership Performance can help match you with the right student and also assist with the structure of the placement week. The most important thing is that the placement should give the student a taste of what it is like being a leader in your company.
