Daniel Briggs, Dawson Group – “A chance to engage with students”
Daniel Briggs has been Head of Marketing at Dawson Group for four years. He recently attended a Career WorkOut session at St. Paul’s Catholic School. He said:
“Dawsongroup are looking at charities to partner with, this is part of our corporate social responsibility, specifically looking at staff volunteering during work hours.
“It was interesting to realise and remember that at that age I, and the students on the day, only have limited preconceived ideas about career options. Career Workout clearly benefits the school students by engaging with adults from diverse vocations.
“Aside from the benefits of helping kids, it is not entirely altruistic for us. This opportunity gives Dawsongroup a chance to engage with students and schools on the variety of career options at our head office.”
