Group Employee Experience Advisor at Cumbria Waste Group & Orian Solutions Ltd
This was our first year taking part in Dream Placement but we have previously worked with the CfLP on Bright Stars which was been very successful and enjoyable. Dream Placement is a good way of raising our profile with young people, and also drawing attention to issues around recycling and dealing with waste. Our placement student was fantastic – interested and enthusiastic which was a good return on all the work we put into the plan for the week. Jesse was taken to a number of different sites to show the sort of work we do on waste handling and facilities management (Orion). I also really enjoyed coaching and mentoring him during his time with us; seeing the business through his eyes gave a refreshing perspective on what we do.
