Join the mission to inspire Tomorrow’s Engineers

Keith Lewis, Chief Operating Officer at Matchtech Group Plc

Today (Monday 2nd November) sees the start of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week - a week-long series of engaging events and activities aimed at getting young people interested in engineering.

The initiative is led by EngineeringUK, of which Matchtech is a corporate member, and the Royal Academy of Engineering. It attracts support from schools, businesses and industry partners across the UK and I’m pleased to say that Matchtech is one of those supporters.

As a specialist engineering recruitment company, Matchtech has a vested interest in maintaining and improving our pipeline of engineering talent in this country so we are glad to be a part of any initiatives that address the issues faced by the industry.

The tagline of this year’s Tomorrow’s Engineers week is Mission Inspiration. Based on the current challenges the industry faces, I’m not sure there could be a more apt soundbite. Overcoming the skills shortage will certainly take a crusader approach and a major part of that involves inspiring the next generation to choose a career in engineering.

To support Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, we will be spreading the word about the initiative through our personal and social networks and sparking conversations around how we can bring the industry alive for young people.

If you are an engineer, one way you can get young people interested in the industry is by sharing your story. How did you get into engineering? What is your favourite thing about your job? What excites you most about the future of engineering in the UK?
