Work Experience at Flood Protection Solutions - Flood Protection Solutions

Posted 30. 07. 2018

At Flood Protection Solutions, we know how important is is to support the next generation.

We recently had Dhruv Gupta, a student from Nottingham High School come and work with us for the day. Here’s what Dhruv had to say:

Recently I participated in work experience at Flood Protection Solutions in order to attain an insight into the daily endeavours of an engineering business. Upon arrival I began an online course which evaluated the 4 pillars of sales, as well as several other areas vital to business. Following a meeting with a pump manufacturer, I undertook some research into the pricing of various pumps; a strategy which enabled the business to charge the most competitive prices. Prior to midday we discussed the challenges of establishing a successful business and potential routes into the engineering industry, including University studies.

After a lunch break accompanied by the tireless Dachshund office dog, I learnt about the ongoing flood action project; at the present stage, surveys are being used to collect data regarding different flood groups. Subsequently, I engaged in an online module which detailed the design and operation of the revolutionary Water Gate flood barrier, which utilises the weight of the water to create a firm seal.

Finally, I enjoyed assisting with the filming of assorted pumps for the flood and water pumps website.




We’re proud to be able to offer our support to the next generation, and would like to thank all of our customers for supporting us.
