This week is National Careers Week and to celebrate I’d like to tell you about how the joint venture between Kier and VolkerFitzpatrick (KVF35) has been working with students at Mildenhall College Academy to help them learn about the different career opportunities available in the construction industry and other related professions.
It’s hard to believe that just over a year ago DIO awarded Kier VolkerFitzpatrick the contract to build facilities for the arrival of US F35s at RAF Lakenheath in 2021.
This week is Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, which aims to inspire individuals to take up a career in engineering. At DIO, engineering provides the opportunity to work on vital projects and infrastructure that ensure the Armed Forces can live, work, train and deploy overseas.
From visiting military firing ranges to supporting multi-million pound infrastructure programmes, apprenticeships at DIO can offer a unique insight into the world of Defence.
Construction has begun on the first set of projects to prepare the airbase in Suffolk for the arrival of two new squadrons of US F35s in 2021.
