Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) Careers Fair leads to permanent job offer from Broadfield

Joe Spray was looking for a work placement for June 2017 at the SHU careers fair where Broadfield stood out as a local employer that operated nationally on some very high-profile schemes

Within a month of starting his year out placement, Broadfield offered Joe a flexible arrangement to work at the Company during his final year of University, together with a permanent offer once he’d graduated.

Joe comments: “Rather than working in a shop or a bar just to earn money I have been able to work at Broadfield, whilst also increasing my knowledge and progressing my career…I love Sheffield, it’s where I was born and raised and it’s fantastic to find a local company that is small enough to care and big enough to offer a wealth of career opportunities. I feel like I’ve definitely fallen on my feet!”

Director Tom Lawrence says: “We have a loyal, likeminded and dedicated team at Broadfield who have provided structured training and support for Joe to increase his knowledge and understanding of the industry and the numerous roles we offer our clients. He’s shown great natural ability together with a willingness to learn which has lead to him receiving greater autonomy and responsibility”

Director Peter Revell says: “We are delighted with the progress Joe has made. He’s got the same attitude and ethos that Broadfield embodies and it was a straight forward decision to offer Joe a permanent role at Broadfield. We work on a range of projects all over the UK and many of the major developments in Sheffield, so as we continue to grow there will be more opportunities for students like Joe.”
