Women into Manufacturing and Engineering (WiME) careers day
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Event Date: 21 Oct 2017
Venue: Humber UTC
Date: Saturday, October 21
NORTHERN Lincolnshire women are being invited to discover job opportunities in the manufacturing and engineering sectors at a special event being held in Scunthorpe.
Women into Manufacturing and Engineering (WiME), which is supported by the Regional Growth Fund, was created in 2016 to encourage females to choose a career in these industries.
The WiME careers day will be a chance to meet women already working in these sectors, find out about current vacancies, discover what training and qualifications are needed, and learn about apprenticeship opportunities.
More than a dozen companies, including British Steel, Two Sisters Food Group, BP, Dong Energy and EDF Energy are supporting the initiative.
Women can talk directly to representatives from companies and their female employees about how to get into this exciting and growing sector of the local economy. There will also be an opportunity to get hands-on with engineering equipment, and up to 100 attendees will be able to ride on a steam train to look around British Steel’s Scunthorpe manufacturing facility.
