Elmgreen School Career Day
On 25th March members of Julius Rutherfoord’s management team attended a career day at Elmgreen School to discuss with the students the range of career opportunities available to young people in the Facilities Management sector.
Chris Parkes, our Operations Director, and Stephanie Castillo, Julius Rutherfoord’s HR Supervisor, attended the skills bureau in South London. They met students from Year 9 and discussed their roles in Julius Rutherfoord, as well as explaining the range of other job opportunities available in the industry such as sales, marketing, HR, customer service and finance.
Having discussed what is available in the cleaning and FM industry, Chris and Stephanie gained some insight into what the students wanted to do in the future. The majority had a rough idea, such as business manager, accountant, scientist or dancer, etc. This then provided them with a good opportunity to offer some general advice on what qualifications could help them moving forward.
Everyone involved in the career day says what a positive experience it was and we very much look forward to attending next year’s event!
