Takeuchi Supporting the Career Speed Networking Event at Kingsway High School.
1st April 2022
Takeuchi’s UK Marketing Manager Holly Cooke represented Takeuchi at a local career speed networking event held at Kingsway Park High School, Rochdale along with plant operator Danny Clare from Vickers Plant Services.
The event targeted at the next generation of students making career choices with Takeuchi highlighting the varied and rewarding job roles available in the busy construction plant sector. With a skill shortage in the construction industry, it is essential for events like this in the local community and schools to get young people to think about a career in our industry.
Danny Clare who works as a Plant Operator talked about how he got into the role, the various training he has received and what he loves about the day to day job “There are so many jobs in construction, no two days are the same! It was great to give the students a picture of what a plant operator does and how you can get into construction. You are working as part of a team and gaining respect as your skills improve. Working outdoors with a variety of people and places and seeing the results of your hard work is a real bonus”
Holly spoke of how she got into marketing and how there are careers for all genders in this industry, with a particular push towards more #womeninconstruction.
‘’It was great to give the pupils an insight into my career at Takeuchi and what a day in the life of a Marketing Manager looks like. I have worked at Takeuchi over 20 years in various roles from Sales & Service to Dealer Support and Marketing Manager. Construction has a variety of careers including skilled trades, IT, marketing, project management, design and much more. In construction, huge job satisfaction comes helping to build something, making a difference to the environment, the opportunity to progress your career and travel the UK and further afield”
Takeuchi have been in Rochdale for over 25 years and will continue to support the local community. Bridging the gap between career choices and knowledge of the construction sector is always high in our priorities.
