Several local businesses got together on Friday 22nd July as part of the first annual Bury College Golf Day.

The day was designed as a way of building relationships with businesses. Some in attendance have already hosted Bury College students on work experience placements, with many providing students with that first step on the career path with an apprenticeship. Other businesses in attendance gained a greater understanding of the benefits of working with us.

Nigel Shields, Project Manager for Training and Skills at Bury College said: “The Bury College Golf Day was a fantastic way to meet many employers all in the space of one day. There were some great discussions about supporting the college and looking after recruitment for the future. 

“Next year’s event will grow from what we have learned from this event and hope to reward our charity of choice with some much-needed income."

Simon Moore from Fluent Finance, based in Bolton, also enjoyed his day: “This event has allowed me to have fun and talk about our future student support needs, I can’t wait for next year!”

Dan Bolton, Managing Director of Water Engineering Services Ltd, based in Bury, added: “The day was very well organised, at a very good venue. It was great to actually meet Nigel and the team at Bury College in person and will now allow us to create better opportunities for future engineers within the North West.”

The range of businesses in attendance included:

Thompsons Tippers UK, PPS Commercials, Ponds Northwest, Water Engineering Systems, Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust, Fluent Money, Caswell Engineering, Weir Engineering, The Best of Bury, Shermin Finance, Clean Air Ventilation, Catfoss Finance, Jigsaw 24 and Rentokil.

A special thank you to PPS Commercials, Aspiration Blinds and Thompson Tippers for sponsoring the day.
