“Very rewarding” – Sharon Boot, Mears PLC

Sharon Boot is Customer & Community Manager at Mears PLC, where she has worked since May 2017.  Mears’ business is to maintain the Council properties throughout Milton Keynes and Mears employs various tradesmen such as electricians, carpenters & plumbers as well as administration support roles such as customer care, finance and call handling.

“As Mears commitment to Social Value we are always looking for interesting ways to get involved with the local community,” says Sharon.  “I thought it would be a great opportunity to visit local schools and talk about the career options with Mears to make employment with us a future c career option for the students.

“Worktree’s Career WorkOut sessions have given me the opportunity to engage with the younger generation and speak to them about how my career has developed and how the career I had chosen at school is very different to the one I have now.  Each school and young person is different.

“A number of my colleagues have attended Career WorkOut and they have found the sessions very rewarding and would love to attend again in the future.”
