Fabricom Offshore Services are committed to supporting the local community. Our team are eager to help and encourage young people by imparting knowledge and experience which may enable them to make difficult decisions as they grow up and mature. We have supported Business in the Community, The Prince’s Responsible Business Network, who provide a range of campaigns and programmes in schools across the country.
Fabricom were recently represented by Carl Blewitt, Structural Engineer and Sam Cairns, E&I Designer at a Careers Speed Dating event. Year 11 students from St Cuthbert’s RC Academy, were tasked with interviewing Carl and Sam about their jobs in a sequence of 7-minute “speed dates”. Together with other business representatives from around the North East of England, we were able to provide students with information about engineering, qualifications and general career advice.
These kind of events are invaluable to students who are beginning to make their future career choices. The campaigns and programmes provided by Business in the Community can assist young people by bringing the world of work to life by helping them to understand career pathways and the skills and competencies they need to build successful working lives.
Both Carl and Sam joined the Fabricom Offshore Services Academy as students and are now crucial assets to our team. For Fabricom, it is essential that we give back to the local community by encouraging and developing the next generation of engineers.
