Two engineers from the Worcester facility, UK, attended a careers evening at a local high school on the 30th March for the second year running. Aimed at school children making subject choices and considering higher education, our company stand had visitors ranging in ages from 12 to 18 years old and even met with a recent university graduate attending the event specifically to talk to the company.
With the growing interaction of the Worcester site and the local community, the pupils showed an increasing awareness of who we are, our global presence, and even showed some technical knowledge about the mining equipment industry. Providing support to the community helps our company to develop a crucial relationship with up and coming engineers, opening opportunities for both the business and pupils alike, and the interest will only grow with the continued attendance of events such as these and the open days frequently held at the Worcester site.
We are dedicated to promoting and interest in careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through a wide variety of outreach initiatives in the global communities in which we operate. Inspiring today’s youth to pursue an education and STEM focused career helps build an innovative and creative workforce for tomorrow who will be dedicated to solving mining’s toughest challenges.
