Renishaw, the UK-based engineering technologies company and Young Engineers, the organisation devoted to encouraging careers in engineering, have announced that entries are now being invited for the 2014 version of a competition to win a fully subsidised, five-day package of activities to encourage a career in engineering.
The partnership is again running the competition that will enable six young people to experience a unique week-long insight into engineering-based organisations. The Renishaw Engineering Experience, which is open to all full-time UK students aged 16-18, will take place from the 30th June – 4th July 2014.
Renishaw said the competition was running at a time when many UK businesses, including its own, were struggling to fill vacancies for skilled engineers..
HR manager Peter Bowler said 2013’s six lucky winners (pictured visiting HMS Dauntless) were now helping to spread a positive message about the rewarding careers that they witnessed during their week-long tour.
The experience will allow the six winners to get close to successful engineering-led organisations and heritage sites, meet the people behind their success, and see products that impact daily lives.
Entry is open until 31 March 2014, with selection and interviews taking place in April. Full details can be found on the Young Engineers website at www.youngeng.org/index.asp?page=1405<http://circular.renishaw.net/re?l=D0I5utpusI1lztb44I4>
