Inspiring the next generation
Education and Employability are key themes in our People-Planet-Purpose Sustainability framework and are pivotal to our ability to grow responsibly, with respect for communities and the natural environment, and to leave a legacy we are proud of.
We take our responsibility to inspire the next generation seriously. We want to stimulate young minds about the exciting world of construction, as well as supporting schools to meet Gatsby Benchmark requirements, to provide employer engagement and work experience opportunities for students.
We are looking to build strong and meaningful relationships with schools in the vicinity of our work sites and offices. If you would like to request support from VolkerWessels UK, please complete the Education Engagement Request form available here. This could include requests for us to offer curriculum support, help with careers events, attendance at a virtual event, STEM support, or a request to visit one of our sites or offices. Please also use this form if you are interested in applying for work experience or a work placement with us.
Please provide as much information as you can, so we can direct your request to the most relevant part of the business. We will review all requests carefully and, whilst we would love to be able to support them all, we hope you will understand that it might not always be possible to do so in every case.
We will endeavour to provide a response with 10 working days.
Please note that you must be over 18 to complete this form, to ensure that we do not communicate directly with minors.
