A group of eight students from Bury College have been given a valuable insight into the world of telecommunications thanks to supply specialist Nimans.
They took part in an interactive presentation and learned how a phone system and two-way radios operate – before going on a guided tour of the building, meeting some of the 200-plus staff at Agecroft, Manchester.
The students learned about all aspects of the business including sales, logistics, marketing, purchasing and IT – and the different roles involved. The young guests were provided with lunch and each left with a goodie bag that included walkie talkies and chocolates.
Event organiser Sue Goldfine from Nimans said the day was a great success. “Many had never been in a work environment before and were very excited to be visiting us. It was a very rewarding experience as the young people were very enthusiastic and keen to discover more.”
College spokeswoman Janet Tye explained: “The staff at Nimans were so welcoming and friendly. They gave our students a fantastic day and they had great fun whilst gaining a valuable insight into how a big market leading company operates. We cannot thank them enough as it gave the students a rare insight into office life. ”
