Magenta Living held a Girls in Construction open day at their building services depot in Birkenhead and students from Wirral Met joined year 9 and 11 pupils from Birkenhead Park School and Bebington High for the open day.

The Magenta Living Team provided a series of demonstrations and talks in areas such as plumbing, joinery, plastering and decorating for the students.

Magenta Living painter Cathy Jackson, having originally joined the company ten years ago with an apprenticeship, shared her own story with the students.

Director of HR and organisational development at Magenta Living said: “It was fantastic to engage with young women from our local schools and colleges through this event and, hopefully, to open their eyes to the exciting variety of careers available within the building maintenance and construction industry.

"This was a pilot event for us but, given its success, we look forward to holding similar events in future.”

The event was sponsored by the Liverpool City Region apprenticeship hub and funded by part of the Employees Support in Skills Project funded by the European Social Fund/Education and Skills Funding Agency - the event was designed in conjunction with Wirral Met College.
