Waterloo helps students start careers in construction and engineering

As part of Waterloo Air Products' commitment to the future of engineering and construction, commercial and export markets manager at Waterloo, Alan Smith, has been appointed as an enterprise adviser with The Careers & Enterprise Company.

Mr Smith’s role will help to ensure that young people are aware of the career opportunities in engineering and construction.

He commented: “It’s a really exciting opportunity. I’ve already had several years’ experience working with the Engineering Department at the University of Greenwich, Medway. It’s been enormously rewarding to have supported students at the start of their careers.

“Being an enterprise adviser with The Careers & Enterprise Company provides an opportunity for Waterloo to help address the national skills gap by attracting more young people into the industry, and connecting schools to businesses.”

Mr Smith will be providing support and information to students in West Kent, encouraging them to look at careers in manufacturing and construction. His new position is part of Waterloo’s wider commitment to promoting engineering to the next generation.

Mr Smith added: “Waterloo has been a member of the Constructing Excellence programme for several years. It operates nationally as a platform for industry improvement through collaboration. This new role means I will be engaging with teaching staff to arrange workshops, presentations, and office and factory visits, with the potential to offer work experience too”.

“It’s an important network and I’m looking forward to helping steer more young people towards a career in engineering or construction.”
