Morgan Sindall Property Services broaden students’ career possibilities

Students from Bromfords Secondary School in Wickford kicked off the year with a site visit to a construction site in Laindon. They were hosted by Morgan Sindall Property Services (MSPS) – Basildon Council’s property services contractor.

Year 9 students attended Mildmays Car Park in Laindon for their hour lesson after an initial health and safety induction at school. On site they worked through the site set up, programme of works, the initial site preparation and clean, and a drain survey.

“The site visit gave the students an insight into the world of work that we couldn’t teach in the classroom. It has encouraged them to find out more about careers in construction,” said Head of Careers Tony Bennett.

The students learned about the apprenticeships, traineeships and work experience opportunities within Morgan Sindall Property Services.

Joining the students was MSPS Site Manager Carly Sampson, Resident Liaison Officer Kelsey Fenton and Social Value Coordinator Maria Hunt.

MSPS Site Manager Carly Sampson says: “As a company, we proactively look for opportunities such as this to directly support the communities we work in. It was great to see the students enjoying interacting with our staff as they learned about initial site set up and preparation in a real life situation.”

MSPS Social Value Coordinator Maria Hunt adds: “We’re passionate about getting more women to consider careers in property and construction, so it was good to see four female students among the group who I was able to talk to about the different job roles available beyond on site and trade.”

The students’ visit took place as part of Morgan Sindall Property Services’ social value programme which delivers additional initiatives designed to meet the wider needs of the communities where they work, creating permanent benefits.
