Enterprise Adviser Brian O’Sullivan, Marketing Manager at Denton & Nickels, has been matched with Yewlands Academy in Sheffield.

Yewlands Academy secondary school is based in the Grenoside area of Sheffield. The school caters for around 850 students between Year 7 and Year 11. Employability skills and links with employers are already an important part of education at Yewlands, partly through their Business in the Community initiative, in which they are partnered with Lloyds Banking Group, which employs 200 people in Sheffield, as well as through links to both universities in Sheffield and a named adviser from the University of Cambridge. The Enterprise Adviser Network will therefore provide a continuation of the work that Yewlands has already successfully started.

Denton & Nickels are a construction company based in Doncaster, established in 1999. Denton & Nickels started out as installers of high quality central heating systems to social and private landlords across Yorkshire. In recent years, they have slowly grown into all sectors of construction, as demand dictated. In 2004, Denton & Nickels set up their own in house electrical department and this expansion has allowed the company to continue to grow.

Discussing the match, Andrew Sowerby, Yewlands Academy, said, “Yewlands Academy are very pleased to be working in partnership with Brian and Theresa from Denton & Nickels. Denton & Nickels are a forward-thinking company, and we are sure they will provide strategic support which will enhance our careers and work-related programmes as we prepare our students for the next phase of their education.”

Brian said, “We are very excited to work with Andrew and the Leadership team at Yewlands. This is a unique opportunity to give a business insight to Yewlands and support the school in its endeavours to prepare students for career enhancement, as well as achieving positive outcomes. We have been very impressed already by everything Yewlands prepares and organises in terms of work experience, business challenges, mock interviews etc. We are looking forward to participation in these activities, identifying strategies and introducing business contacts to enhance this offering.”
