News: Bright Engineering Student Available

Posted on 5th June 2019

I have a grandson who is in his third year (of four)  at Stellenbosch University studying mechanical engineering. He is very clever – so much so that he is able to pay his fees through a bursary. He will be visiting us from November for 2 months and has asked me whether I know of any firm in Burgess Hill that he may be able to spend some time with to see what they do. He does not want to be paid and indeed would not be allowed to be paid as he is not British. However some work experience would be right up his alley. Last year he was selected as part of a group that went to Germany and spent time there seeing how large firms work.


Do you have any contacts who I might approach  to see if they would be able and willing to accommodate him for a week or so?  Please contact Steve Cridland at BHTC on 01444 238208


Many thanks

"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."

Nick Broom, Managing Director

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
