Putting pupils, parents, and businesspeople in a room together, careers evenings allow the future workforce to meet with representatives from all business sectors and enter the world of networking.

This month Adelle, Doug and Abigail from our Edinburgh office represented jmarchitects at Knox Academy Careers fair in East Lothian and Bathgate Academy Pathways and Careers Evening in West Lothian to offer pupils an insight into a career in Architecture whilst also highlighting other pathways within the construction industry.

With 60 businesses in attendance at Knox Academy, jmarchitects were delighted to be pitched next to WRD’s Gillian Ogilvie and team so we could share with pupils how the two roles collaborate on projects and the software utilised during coordination.

Both evenings were well attended, and we would like to thank both Elaine Gorman and Georgina Scott for inviting us along to support the development of the young workforce.

 “For the past two years, jmarchitects have exhibited at the Knox Academy career event in Haddington, and the interest from both parents and pupils has been superb! Adelle and Stewart helped inspire pupils by sharing information about the varied creative and technology led career pathways within their sector. Fabulous feedback from parents included, “I came away with a very motivated student” and “they had a lot of time and advice to offer.”
