We were recently pleased to welcome Lucy Smith to Pentaxia for a week of work experience. Lucy is a pupil at Littleover School and has a keen interest in engineering, so a week working with the team was a perfect fit to give her a taste of working life.
As a business it is important for us to encourage young people into the industry and work experience is a fantastic way for an individual to trial what they could be doing in the future.
Lucy spent time in every area of the business from design through to despatch. She commented “I loved work experience, especially because everyone was so nice and I got a lot out of it. I loved doing trimming with Jonny and engineering with Grace and I’d love to do engineering in the future. It was a great week – the worst part being realising I had to go back to school the following Monday.”
It was great to be able to provide Lucy with some hands-on experience and to encourage her to pursue a future in engineering. We wish her all the best with her chosen career path when the time arises.
