Pembrokeshire College’s Employment and Enterprise Bureau has hosted another successful Employer Lunch sponsored by Dragon LNG.

The event provided learners studying Business, Animal Care, Sports, Performing Arts and Public Services with an opportunity to meet with employers over a lunch within the College’s student-run SEED Restaurant.

Industry professionals from Pembrokeshire Leisure, Milford Haven Port Authority, Dyfed Powys Police and Dragon LNG attended the event to speak with the learners. Each talked about what it’s like to work in their industry along with discussing options regarding career prospects and job opportunities for learners to consider after completing their course.

Following the lunch learner comments included: “I feel like this has educated me and to stick with what I want to in the future” and “Employers were very informative and helpful for what to do to get a job. They were very helpful with finding different choices and paths to take in the future.”

While employers commented: “It’s been useful to understand more about the students’ aspirations and viewpoints and their knowledge and awareness about the companies on their doorstep” as well as “Great opportunity to speak to young people who are in the same position as me, years ago.”

Pembrokeshire College and Dragon LNG would like to thank everyone involved for giving up their time to meet with learners and help them to explore the opportunities available to them in the local area.

Karen Wood, Stakeholder and Communications Manager at Dragon LNG added: “We are absolutely delighted to continue supporting these amazing events, especially after a few challenging years through the pandemic. To see learners and employers in deep conversation again and to receive the positive feedback really does show what an impact these types of events can have, not only on the learners but the employers too. Who knows what magic can happen from these engagements. Thank you to the amazing team at the College for another brilliant event.”
