An initiative that will see students experience the three-year journey from commencement of construction to the completion of DLA Piper’s new state-of-the-art Leeds office has recently launched with the first of five engaging careers and skills events.
MyExperience@ City Square House will span the development cycle of the new office building, providing students with an insight into the wide range of businesses, professionals and skills involved in such a significant project. Delivered by Ahead Partnership, leaders in developing ESG solutions and ensuring measurable social impact by creating unique business partnerships that connect young people to opportunity, the initiative will engage students on five different occasions as they progress from year seven to year nine and begin to think about their future career pathways.
The initial launch event took place on 24 March at DLA Piper’s current Princes Square office. This exciting day saw students receive a tour of the existing corporate office and take part in an interactive building modelling competition. There was also an opportunity to speed network with colleagues from the Property and Workplace department at DLA Piper, as well as with the building contractor, the developer, MRP and firms advising DLA Piper including Gardiner and Theobald.
