June 1st – Service Leavers Insight Day

chapman ventilation

This Insight day would be of interest to Service Leavers looking towards a second career in the Construction or M&E Industry areas, specifically experienced (degree or HND qualified) Mechanical or Civil Engineers.

Chapman Ventilation’s Insight Day gave me an outstanding opportunity to witness first-hand the inner and onsite workings of a growing engineering and construction business. As an Engineer leaving the Army looking at M&E and facilities services as a second career the opportunity to explore the market in a ‘forces friendly’ informal environment was very welcome indeed.
