Arcus takes part in careers fair to help shape the future of FM

Award-winning facilities management company, Arcus, proudly supported a local high-school at its careers fair, as part of its partnership with the school and Worcestershire County Council, to support the delivery of the Government’s National Careers and Enterprise programme.

The event which took place at St Augustine’s RC, Redditch, on Friday 5 July, saw 240 students all keen to learn more about Arcus and what it can offer. The team shared an overview of the organisation and held a quick fire Q&A with the pupils.

As part of the ongoing partnerships, Arcus has promised to deliver a range of activities including, work experience placements, careers advice, CV workshops, and curriculum support, providing students with invaluable advice and hopefully excite them about the opportunities offered by the world of work.

Alan Wright, Central Operations Director, and CSR chairman said: “We’re delighted to be able to work with St Augustine’s school and support the pupils by giving them the opportunity to connect with a local employer and experience the world of work.

“As an organisation we feel it’s so important to equip young people with the relevant tools and advice to help them feel ready for the working world. Arcus prides itself on investing in its people and their development through bespoke training techniques and innovative technology – two core pillars of our organisation.

“As part of our CSR commitment we’re keen to support our local communities and this partnership allows us to use our people’s skills to support future of our industry.”

Arcus has been chosen to be St Augustine’s private sector partner and through the partnership, Arcus will provide ongoing support for pupils, with decision-making and career development. The partnership will enable colleagues at Arcus to talk directly to pupils about the opportunities available and ensure that they consider all the possibilities as they move through school.
