The visiting students were welcomed by Kingspan Environmental business professionals and enjoyed heairng about the many and varied routes taken by members of Kingspan Environmental staff in terms of educational backgrounds and career choices in their paths leading to current roles at the company. Students also toured the plant to see at first hand the step by step processes involved in the production of solar thermal tubes and tanks and were intrigued to hear some of the backgound to the Kingpsan success story.
Mirroring the views of many, one student reflected: “it was really great to see how many different types of careers are available in Kingspan. I am interested in engineering and construction and the visit to Kingspan really showed me how I could use these subjects to get a job there in the future. I have better understanding now too of how a company can operate globally, growing from a local base. If I was successful in getting a job there after my studies perhaps it would give me the opportunity to transfer to another country for a while.”
