E3R attends Careers Convention to promote engineering apprenticeships
On Wednesday 11 October E3 Recruitment attended a Careers Convention at King James’s School, in Almondbury, Huddersfield to promote engineering apprenticeships as a great way to begin a career in engineering.
The event was held in conjunction with the Calderdale and Kirklees Careers Service Partnership and was aimed at pupils in Year 9, 10 and 11, aged 13-16 years.
E3R employees and past King James’s School students Amy Thornton and Emily Humble attended the event with Director Andrew Joseph to provide guidance to the students on working as an engineer after leaving school. Andrew Joseph commented:
“It’s all about future proofing yourself ensuring the career path you choose has longevity and job security. It’s really important that students are aware of apprenticeships in engineering as a viable career option. The current skills shortage is preventing businesses from finding the right people with the right skills, and we all need to take responsibility in working much closer with schools and communities to resolve this. By being involved in events like this, E3R is promoting engineering to the next generation.”
Other companies in attendance at the event included Cummins Turbo Technologies, Reliance Precisions and Paxman Landscapes, as well as Further and Higher Education establishments and the Armed Forces.
