The Value of Work Experience at BWB to Jack Brothwell
24 June 2019
Last week we had the pleasure of student Jack Brothwell joining us for some work experience with both Deetu & also our pre-planning teams in Manchester to confirm if a career in consultancy was something he would like to pursue.
Jack kept a diary of his weeks work experience with us and we thought we would share some real value-added words of his from this with you.
“The chance to learn technical, valuable skills in a working environment and enhancing my skills within GIS based work, but also getting a great insight into the other environmental teams has been great.
I especially found the air quality, acoustics and water teams the most fascinating, as this is where my strengths mostly lie through my degree in physical geography.
I worked in the Deetu team and massively improved my GIS and other digital software skills, to create representations on online platforms. This is likely to be a valuable skill for me.
Finally, more importantly, this work experience has made me think about what the first step in my career could be.
Learning a unique skill that can be used to consult and help businesses sounds good to me, and it’s thanks to the BWB team for making me think this way. This week has made me want to really pursue a career in this type of work and I hope one day I can work in a company like BWB.”
Jon Frost, Deetu Director added “Jack slotted right into the Deetu team for his week here, picking up tasks quickly, expanding his own GIS skills and taking the opportunity to properly understand what a career in consultancy might look like for him.”
