R G Carter ran a career-focussed stand at the Royal Norfolk Show on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th June. The stand aimed to demonstrate the training opportunities and career routes the business has to offer, as well as its commitment to the community.
Craft skills demonstrations on brick bonding, arches and building a roof truss, were run by our Apprentices and were available for the public to try themselves. The stand also provided several activities for younger children to have a go at, including lego and structure building and builder relay races which drew many families and schools parties to the stand for both fun and educational reasons.
A career event was held on Wednesday evening, where teachers, tutors and students from high schools and colleges across Norfolk attended to find out more about roles and training at R G Carter, and our own trainees and graduates were invited to talk to them about their experience with the company.
We collected for the charity EACH again this year, giving rides on a Scissor lift for a birds eye view of the show ground and raised over £500, which will be match funded.
