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

"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."

"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
