2019 - 2024


Shell UK and Sodexo hosted a visit for our Project SEARCH Interns at their Silver Fin building on Union Street on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th March.

The Interns enjoyed learning more about the potential career options available to them when they graduate from the programme and hearing about the roles carried out by members of the Shell UK and Sodexo teams. 

We are looking forward to working in partnership with both organisations in the future.
