Careers Takeover 2022
Episode 9: Paul Jennings and Jonathan Guy
On March 9, 2022 David Lipington from the Student Services Team hosted a very special careers themed takeover in honour of National Careers Week 2022.
Throughout the day David and colleagues in the Student Services Team interviewed various professionals around the routes into their careers, and discussed what the realities of the day-to-day roles are, and the types of skills required to perform it effectively. Some of the themes of this day were around wider careers related issues such as those effecting students who have English as a second language, care leavers, issues faced by women in the workplace, and how to manage your mental health and well-being whilst going through that all important job application process.
The construction industry is often misrepresented in the public consciousness, however the sector actually offers very diverse, exciting and ethical progression routes for people from all different backgrounds . Joining us live in the studio to dispel any myths is social vale manager Paul Jennings, and quantity surveyor Jonathan Guy from Morgan Sindall.
