Sponsoring new talent

'Be Inspired' is a careers competition sponsored by Gleeds and launched by Career Coach Maria Willis. In partnership with Nottingham Trent University, we hope to inspire and educate young people about the rewards and opportunities a career in construction offers.

Be Inspired has now reached its half way point! In October, marketing and construction students formed teams and started working on their assignment to create a social media strategy and a 3-minute promotional video. After a few weeks they got to present their storyboards to the Be Inspired judging panel.

This is the first pitch the teams will have to face until one of them is announced winner in March 2016. Look out for updates in January, when the students will be presenting their videos to the judging panel…
