Recruiting the Engineers of Tomorrow

In conjunction with the Thames Valley Regional Group of the IStructE, David and Freya from our Oxford office manned the stall for the afternoon session at the Slough Aspire Careers Event on 2nd February held at the Refresh Skills Centre in Slough.   The event was aim at Year 9 (13 year old) students from schools and academies across Slough.

Overall it was a successful day extolling the benefits of a career in structural engineering.  Several of the schools AKS Ward have worked on were present which went down well when they saw the project page for their school.   We had a number of good conversations with several interested students, and have hopefully helped steer some of them towards a career in structural engineering.
