• Sharing career stories to inspire the next generation

Jim Tidbury, Parts Co-ordinator, Jess Cooper, Works Co-ordinator and Nichia Emmerson, Commercial Contract Administrator, attended the event at Park Community School in Havant along with other businesses from the local area.

The session aimed to give students an opportunity to learn more about the businesses and the roles of the people who work there.

After the event Jim said: “The students had been given an hour before we began the day to research the businesses they would be seeing and prepare some question to ask.

“We had six to seven minutes with each group of students to tell them about our business, our roles and answer any questions they may have. A bell then rang and the students would move tables.

“I explained who Liberty is and explaining our partnership with Portsmouth City Council, including the area we cover, out of hours and the service, breakdown and install work we do during the working day.

“We all then told them a bit about our roles, including our legionella works, the training programmes available to us and about Liberty’s trip to Africa with ForViva last year.

“It was interesting to see what careers the students had in mind for when they finished school. It was nice to speak to them about what the three of us had done when we left school as they were all so different.”
