WALK PEER Programme

WALK PEER Programme

16 Apr 2024

We were delighted to welcome students from Scoil Bernadette, Montenotte, to our Cork site as part of the WALK PEER programme which helps bridge the transition for students from special education to employment. Our visitors, interested in careers in trades such as carpentry and joinery, had the opportunity to speak directly with our skilled tradespeople, learning about the various career pathways construction offers and the level of collaboration between the trades at each project stage.

Our Contracts Manager, Noel McDonnell, guided the tour alongside HR Business Partner, Genevieve Rose. They demonstrated our commitment to developing a supportive and inclusive work environment while our people shared their experiences working in trades, offering valuable insights into their roles and the dynamic nature of the industry.
