Clark and Sutherland Give Fantastic Work Experience Opportunities to Young People
Clark and Sutherland who specialise in Grain Equipment and Engineering, have provided work experience to two students, one from Keith Grammar School and one from Robert Gordon University (RGU). Lee Scott, 17, currently in S6 completed his work experience as part of the Career Ready programme, delivered for young people across Moray that sees young people matched up with a local business mentor.
Lee’s mentor, Steven Dunbar, Managing Director at Global Resources, suggested a work placement with Clark and Sutherland would be a great opportunity to gain more knowledge and hands on experience about engineering.
Working in the office Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm, Lee spent his first week working with the design team getting involved in the process of modeling and computer design. Lee’s second week was then spent with the project team helping with the organisation, pricing and planning of new projects.
“At school I take engineering science which I really enjoy, I always knew I wanted to do an engineering related job. However, I didn’t know what career I wanted to do within this. Having the opportunity to do work experience means it will give me more of an idea on what job I would like to do as well as see what I enjoy doing the most.”
Jamie McLeod - Design Office Manager said:
“We were treating Lee as if he was a new apprentice to the organisation - by explaining to him everything about the company and showing him the process of work and answering any questions he had. This gave him a full insight into all aspects of our company.”
