Many of the employers there will have live vacancies so pupils are encouraged to take along multiple copies of their CVs and approach employers so that they can find out more and leave their details with the employers. There will also be lots of SDS staff there to provide advice and guidance throughout the event.

This is a great opportunity to meet employers and find out more about potential pathways.

Optimus Aberdeen Work Experience

As previously published to pupils in Google Classroom, Optimus are once again offering a pupil from Bridge of Don Academy the opportunity of a week’s work experience later this year. This is open to all pupils, from those planning to study at university, to others who may be unsure of their career path. Applications need to be submitted by 28 February. Such is the size of this opportunity, we expect this to be oversubscribed. The four page application form is attached to this notice.

Optimus are a specialist engineering and consultancy company based in Aberdeen but with offices around the world. They have work experience opportunities in many areas of business, not just engineering. More information at https://optimusaberdeen.com/

This an opportunity for you to experience the reality of working life for one week, from Monday 8 June to Friday 12 June . The aim is for you to gain an insight into the world of work and have the opportunity to learn from the experience by being exposed to a variety of tasks and to the culture of the work place. Work experience can also help employers by challenging their perceptions of young people’s skills and attitudes so you can play your part in this.

Speak to your Guidance Teacher, Mrs Cruickshank or Mr Jamieson for more information or for help completing the application.
