WEALTH at work sponsored United Utilities ‘Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge.’  The challenge involved climbing the three highest mountains in Yorkshire in less than 12 hours.

United Utilities Pensions Manager, Allan Heron FPMI, and Steven Robson FPMI, Head of Pensions, hope to raise a significant amount of sponsorship for their two chosen charities; the Walton Lea Partnership and North West Air Ambulance.

Allan Chairs the Walton Lea Partnership which is a small local registered charity providing a safe and nurturing environment for adults with mental and/or physical disabilities.

University of Lincoln

WEALTH at work has recently awarded a sponsored scholarship to Alex Todd, a student at the University of Lincoln.

This exciting opportunity was made available as a result of both organisations having a shared interest and commitment to the development of educational needs from the classroom into the workplace.

It follows a successful completion of a three year scholarship with another student from the University.

Alex is studying for a Business and Finance degree at the university and has completed his second year this summer. As part of the scholarship, WEALTH at work will be providing Alex with a 4 week summer work experience placement over the next two years.

Having recently completed his first years’ work experience placement, Alex comments; “I am pleased to have joined WEALTH at work for this valuable opportunity. It has been great to meet the team and to learn new skills such as analysing and evaluating data, working with CRM systems and producing reports which I will be able to put into practice in the near future. I am looking forward to seeing what next year brings.”

Jonathan Watts-Lay, Director, WEALTH at work, comments; “We are passionate about helping the next generation of professionals to build employability skills that cannot be taught in the classroom.  We are confident that this experience will be valuable throughout Alex’s degree and future career.”

Ian Hodson, Head of Reward / Deputy Director of Human Resources, University of Lincoln, comments; “We are committed to ensuring that our students leave us industry-ready and believe that our partnership with WEALTH at work will provide them with the practical experience needed in the workplace. This programme will undoubtedly assist Alex in his future career and I look forward to seeing his progression.”
