Work experience student offered trainee role by Wildgoose Construction

A student who completed work experience at Wildgoose Construction has been offered the opportunity to become a Management Trainee after completing his college course.

Tom Evans, 18, impressed bosses at Wildgoose Construction so much that they decided to offer him a role within the company.

The teenager is currently studying for a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Construction in the Built Environment at Chesterfield College.

During his work experience at Wildgoose Construction, based in Alfreton, he was given the opportunity to see all areas of the business. He spent time with the marketing team, buying team, quantity surveyors and estimators. He also visited two recently completed builds including Swadlincote Fire Station and a £3m industrial development in Burton for Ischebeck Titan.

Tom said he was delighted to have been offered the Management Trainee role.

He said:

“I reached out to many different local companies, none of whom I heard back from except from Wildgoose who instantly came back to me offering me a placement for 70 hours of work experience.

“Overall, I really enjoyed my work experience at Wildgoose as it gave me a wide understanding of how the industry works and how a construction company works together through all the different roles.”

Tom is one of six youngsters recently given work experience by Wildgoose Construction.

They include two students from Vision West Nottinghamshire College, both completing their Level 3 BTEC Construction in the Built Environment, one student from Swanwick Hall School, one from Highfields School in Matlock and one from Lady Manners School in Bakewell.

Jonathan Wildgoose, Executive Chairman of Wildgoose Construction, said:

“Wildgoose is passionate about offering people opportunities and we have a real focus and drive to invest in talent. If we can give them a glimpse into the world of construction, we would like to think we have helped them on the ladder to success.”
