Representatives from local businesses visited Spalding Grammar School to spend a morning chatting to students about career opportunities.

The visitors chatted to Year 10 students in small groups and also opened the floor for Year 11, 12 and 13 members to find out about their professions.

All of the Year 10 students have work experience later this year so it was also an 
opportunity to ask questions about what would be expected from them.

Companies represented included Iliffe Publishing (Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian), Bakkavor, West Elloe Pharmacy, the Royal Navy, the RAF, the Army, Boston United FC, Bishop Grosseteste University Lincoln, Welland Power, Peter Humphrey Associates architects, Handelsbanken Lincoln, the NHS, Duncan & Toplis accountants, Calthrops solicitors and MMUK fruit company.

Free Press editor Jeremy Ransome said: “It was great to meet so many students and tell them about the industry I’ve enjoyed working in for 29 years.

“There was a lot of interest in journalism and there are a couple of students who we will be working with in the future to help them with their careers choice. It was a worthwhile exercise.”
