The College’s Employment Bureau hosted their sixth Employer Lunch Event on Wednesday 4 May 2022. The event, sponsored by Dragon LNG, gave 21 learners from a range of engineering courses the chance to meet with employers over a lunch within the College’s student-run ‘SEED Restaurant’. A big thank you to all who participated.
Company representatives from Le Breton Engineering Limited, BTG Speciality Pharmaceuticals, Ledwood Mechanical Engineering Limited and Mainstay Marine Solutions attended. Each had the opportunity to talk about what it’s like to work in their industry and to discuss the engineering related career options/job vacancies for learners to consider following the completion of their course.
Feedback from the day included:
“I think it was a great idea and well executed. It gave me a great insight into lots of companies and gave me a wide range of opportunities to consider.”
“I found today really interesting. It was very interactive as I was able to speak to employers in person.”
“As a company we enjoyed the engagement with Pembrokeshire College and it’s learners.”
“A great session, great to see the next generation coming through.”
