P34B Inspiring

P34B Inspiring

Promoting people with personal values and business appropriate behaviours to engage on real projects, demonstrate their potential, evolve their capability and realise their potential. 

 We see the gap between good people and good businesses.

 We’re here to help address it.

 We create employability skill experiences for those with passion to apply themselves and demonstrate their potential on real projects with real businesses. 

We share our professional and business experiences with schools, colleges and universities to inform and highlight the importance of employability credentials. 

 We encourage you to engage with our clients and employers.

 Your placement could be your interview.  

 If we support you and inspire you, to then connect you with an opportunity you make your own, then we’ve succeeded with our mission.

Colleges
“It’s fantastic to see directors taking time out of their schedules to help shape and promote innovative curriculum for the next generation of construction workers.  I’m hoping conversations such as today will be the catalyst for more collaboration and masterclasses across all of our curriculum, as this truly is the most effective way to bring our industry to the classroom”.

Perspectives

“I have never completed a virtual interview before. Very professional

and was akin to industry standards, so gave me great experience.

Excellent experience for future interviews that I will have”.

“Level of support was second to none. Very different from the college placement which I did, felt like part of the project and worked on a whole live project. Neil always made time to support and ensured that I was on the right track”.

“I got much more out of it than I ever expected. It was essentially a marketing role, but it was much more. Gave me options to follow different career paths and opened my eyes about my skills and how I could use them in graduate jobs”.

“Communication skills made my career pathway clear – lots of opportunity to build on the skills that I have with currently working with my dad at his company; and completing the marketing for my dad’s business.

Neil gave me support and experience in spades”.

Perspectives

“Always communicated with me online, by email and in person. It felt like it was a real job because of how I was treated. We had regular check points for development and progress. This was really good”.

“I wanted an experience that would help me in the future, and I feel like this has. I know that I want to get a job in Brand Management. I generally panic when I am doing something new and that I haven’t done before. I feel that I have more confidence now as I have dealt with stakeholders and professionals and am able to communicate ideas effectively now. I have learned that it is always important to have a Plan B in case Plan A is not developed.

“Problem-solving skills and communicating in a business forum. Allowed me to interact with stakeholders and developed my skills in working on a virtual platform. My problem-solving skills were not very good at the start of the placement, but they have increased greatly by the end of the placement”.

“Problem solving abilities improved and how to behave in the workplace professionally. Also, how you can control a situation positively to achieve the result that you want”.
