The ESB were delighted to sponsor the Your Future 2018 Careers event at the Basildon Towngate Theatre. Your Future 2018, organised by Basildon Council was a drop-in event for 15-19 year olds and their parents and careers to meet local employers, training providers, colleges and sixth forms to find out what their next steps could be. The event also offered the opportunity to participate in workshops throughout the evening, including sessions run by James Sinclair, owner of Marsh Farm and Partyman and Fiona Marriage from the Essex Apprenticeship Hub.
Building on the success of the Uttlesford Schools Career Fair, the ESB gave away copies of our 'Ultimate Guide to Getting a New Job in Essex' to young people and adults and outlined the opportunities available across Essex in the seven key sectors. We also offered opportunities for attendees to take part in the DELIVR IT Logistics VR experience.
Young people were encouraged to participate in the careers postcard competition which involved them collecting stickers from employers representing our seven key sectors in order to enter a prize draw. We are pleased to announce the winner from the Your Future 2018 event was Sydney from Shenfield School.
Sydney said, “I really enjoyed the evening and I liked finding out about all of the different jobs and careers the suited me. It was very useful.”
