Henry Boot Construction recently provided work experience to students Vanessa Nyakumbi and Wellington Mulenga from The Sheffield College.

Both students spent one day a week for a three-week period learning about the different departments at Henry Boot Construction's head office. Vanessa and Wellington spent time with the Business Development, Purchasing and Estimating teams completing a variety of tasks.

"I have really enjoyed my experience working with the bid team and estimating as a whole. I learnt different requirements that Henry Boot Construction has to go through when bidding for different work. I appreciate the time that was spent teaching me the ins and outs of estimating that I honestly found interesting."

"My time at Henry Boot Construction has been eye opening. It has prepared me for work in the future and I've had a taster into different departments. It has also given me new ideas about what industry I could go into after my education. My overall experience has been great and I have met alot of friendly staff."
