VolkerRail is a supporting sponsor for Doncaster Opportunities LIVE

This year, VolkerRail is a supporting sponsor for Doncaster’s biggest student engagement event – Doncaster Opportunities LIVE.

Doncaster Opportunities LIVE provides local students aged six to 16 with the chance to meet professionals from a variety of roles and industries and get advice on how to kick start their career.

Over 3,500 students are expected to attend this year’s event, being held on Thursday 9 March.

The day will feature over 100 businesses at the Doncaster Racecourse, and students will hear from experienced industry professionals representing a variety of roles, leaving with a wealth of information on local career opportunities and further study options.

Commenting, VolkerRail’s senior social value advisor, Caroline Lee, said: “As a well established Doncaster business, we are delighted to be sponsoring such a great event. We understand how valuable it is to engage with students, who could one day become part of our future workforce, and showcase the rail industry as a sector which offers long term career opportunties for anyone.

“There are so many different career paths in rail; either STEM-based roles, or career paths that might not be so familiar to students, which focus on the environment, digital development, content writing, design and much more.

“VolkerRail also has a great apprenticeship programme, with both site and office based opportunities;, year in industry placement schemes, and graduate programmes. Our people come first, and we are proud that many of those who join VolkerRail stay with us for a long time.”
