During this year’s Bassetlaw summer school, two local students were selected by Speedo to spend a week working with their company at their world headquarters in Nottingham.
The two students were Dulcie Hall from the Elizabethan Academy in Retford and Jess Smith from Outwood Academy Valley in Worksop.
They were chosen in response to the outstanding contribution they made in their teams during the day spent at Pentland Brands in July.
Speedo is the world’s leading swimwear designer with an annual turnover of more than $1 billion.
Dulcie worked with their human resources department and Jess was with the commercial brand team.
Bassetlaw John Mann MP said “Opportunities like this are very special and I’m delighted that Speedo offered Dulcie and Jess a chance to experience working in such a fantastic company and I’m sure that they’ve had an amazing time.”
“I’d like to thank both Speedo and their parent company Pentland Brands for playing such a key role in the summer school and allowing pupils from Bassetlaw the chance to work in such a prestigious company.”
