Work experience with Citycare Property

Underpinning everything we do at Citycare Property are our purpose and values —We discover; We deliver; We care — which talk directly to a genuine passion and care for the communities in which we operate. These community connections continue to be showcased via collaborative initiatives such as work experience programmes with local schools.

Fourteen-year-old Middleton Grange School student Lara Plew recently spent the day with David Goy, Health and Safety Advisor, and Hana Saemon-Beck, Community Activator, as part of her school’s work experience programme.

Lara, who has a passion for environmental science, accompanied David to Christchurch Airport where she was given a tour of the workshop and grounds, talking with a gardener about the work they do maintaining the site and how they do that safely, as well as learning about some of the reporting aspects that are required when following up on Health and Safety incidents, along with environmental incident reporting.

Lara then accompanied Hana to Halswell — where Citycare Property will be contributing to the formation of a heritage trail — to view some ancient Matai tree stumps that have been rescued by the locals. From there, the duo visited the Riverlution Community Hub and joined other Citycare Property staff in a discussion with the St Albans Neighbourhood Trust regarding plans for an upcoming community garden project.

“It was a really great day,” says Lara. “I found the whole experience to be really worthwhile in thinking more about a career in the environmental sciences.”
