10 Jul 2020

Thank you for the huge response to our Primary and Secondary school careers competitions. The hard work, creativity and heart that went into them had myself (Helen Treadwell) and the judges feeling quite emotional at times. It was a tough decision for our judges to pick winners and runners up so I want to say a huge thank you to:

Hilary Wood – Senior HR Generalist at Thermo Fisher Scientific

Victoria Philps – Head of the people’s team at Walkers Deli and Sausage Company (a division of Samworth Brothers)

Tracy Renshaw – Communications and Engagement Partner at Walker and Son (a division of Samworth Brothers)

Her presentation was fun and really geared to her fellow students. It was very interactive with lots of links to click on which took you to further information. We thought the topics had been well researched and Cheryl had added her own personal interpretation of the information.
