Network75 event with the University of South Wales
On the 18th of December 2017, Network75 hosted a celebratory “100 Students Event” to recognise the special milestone of acquiring over 100 Students on our unique scheme. Network75 is a combined work and study route to a degree. Undergraduates apply their academic knowledge to real-life work within a host company. Network75 trainees have the opportunity to gain both academic knowledge and practical experience, making them industry-ready graduates.
Mark spoke of his experience as one of the first Civil Engineering students on the scheme with his host company Lewis Civil Engineering. Mark stayed with Lewis Civils for 5 years upon graduation and in 2006 as a site Manager on projects for Dwr Cymru Welsh Water. Mark explained how his experience on Network75 at Lewis Civil Engineering led to him managing large projects across Australia for Monadelphous, before returning to the UK to take his position as Operations Manager for O’Connor Utilities Ltd where he is now able to support community development opportunities such as local graduate schemes.
