We open our doors to possible future workers

Around 20 students from Queen Elizabeth High School in Gainsborough took part in a world of working day here at Acis to explore and learn about life after school.

With help from the EBP (Educational Business Partnership) we wanted to educated the students in the different type of roles and pathways students could take in working life. We have nearly 200 employees and have a vast range of roles from plumbers to marketers and accountants to gas engineers.

The students were treated to talks from our Chief Executive Greg Bacon, Head of Marketing Claire Woodward and Efficiency Officer Tracey O’Neil as they discussed our values and what it is like to work in the affordable housing sector. The group also took part in an office tour where they could see the various teams busy at work. Students thoroughly relished the day with many saying they really enjoyed the day and had a valuable and interesting experience.

Queen Elizabeth High School teacher Mr Kingdom said: “The day was a fascinating insight into a large organisation. Acis is one of the largest employers in Gainsborough and what struck the students was the variety of roles on offer. We visited all of the departments, from IT to HR and project management, to marketing and planning. A number of members of Acis people, including the Chief Executive and the Head of Marketing outlined their career paths and the qualities that they looked for in potential employees. The training also covered how students should market themselves and even gave them a chance to practice their handshakes!

“The students thoroughly enjoyed the day and gained a huge amount from it.  It was a unique opportunity for them to see a workplace in action and to hear the life stories of some successful and hugely inspiring people. As one student commented ‘I didn’t really know what people did at work….it all looks a lot more interesting than I thought it would be…’

“Having an idea of both the hard and soft skills that they will need to succeed in the workplace is extremely important for students. The opportunity to engage with adults in the work environment gives them context and purpose for their studies.”
