Inspiring the next generation of engineers

We visited George Abbot School to talk to students about career opportunities in Design, Engineering and Construction.

Some of our staff took time out of their busy schedule last week to visit George Abbot School, in Guildford, Surrey, to share what it is like working for a specialist design and construction company servicing highly regulated industries including biotechnology, pharmaceutical, life sciences and radiopharmaceutical.

Farzad Mohebati, Senior Architect, Nadira Adjali, Principal Mechanical Building Services Engineer, Hazel Hatley, Process Engineer, and Emma Dawas, HR Manager visited the school for its Career Fair, in which local and national businesses were invited to share what career prospects are available across varying fields.

The team talked to students from years 9, 11, 12 and 13, about the types of subjects and qualifications that would be required for a career at Scitech and explained what opportunities such a career could offer. This was aided by a range of guides and material provided by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) aimed specifically at the year groups represented at the careers day.

Emma Dawas, HR Manager at Scitech, said: “It was a real pleasure to be back in a school taking part in events such as this, talking to students about career opportunities in Design, Engineering and Construction. The George Abbot students were highly engaged when talking to our experts in Process and Building Services Engineering and Architecture in particular. It was also really nice to exercise our Corporate Social Responsibility agenda and give something back to our local community.”
