See how diverse the workplace is – Edward Sepke, Network Rail
Edward Sepke has been Workplace Facilities Manager for the Central Estates at Network Rail since November 2017.Why did you decide to do a Career WorkOut session with Worktree?
“I have volunteered in Worktree’s Career WorkOut sessions at The Radcliffe School, Walton High, St. Paul’s Catholic School and YMCA. How did it make you feel about young people, yourself and your work when you got back to it?
“I have enjoyed every moment of it. I wish I had such an opportunity when I was their age. When I went back to work, I shared my experience with colleagues and they have had a good experience of Career WorkOut too.
“The simple reason I encourage colleagues to participate is that they can help provide young people with a sense of direction, focus and determination. I believe it gives young people the opportunity to see how diverse the workplace is and the various routes they can follow to build their careers.”
