In September, twenty-two new graduates and apprentices joined the VolkerStevin business, with three more set to join by the end of the month.
On Tuesday 1 September, the graduates and apprentices were invited to the VolkerStevin head office in Preston, to embark on a four-day introductory workshop.
Over the course of the week, the candidates were given a company induction from departments across the business, including design, digital, work winning, procurement and estimating. Our health and safety team also discussed the importance of VolkerStevin’s Safety Ripple initiative.
The graduates and apprentices, whose job roles’ range from surveyors to engineers, will now be based on VolkerStevin sites across the UK.
Carol Bold, Head of HR, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many new starters joining our business, despite the current climate. VolkerStevin offers extensive support and opportunities for a long and rewarding career, and I look forward to seeing each individual develop their knowledge and skills to achieve their professional potential. I would like to wish the new graduates and apprentices the very best as they begin their journey with us.”
September was VolkerWessels UK’s annual, dedicated equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) month.
