"You'll never be bored" - why choose a career in engineering

Published

As part of our recent Women in Manufacturing (#womeninmfg) campaign for International Women in Engineering Day (#INWED17), we interviewed 12 women working in manufacturing about what they love about their work. Common themes emerged, such as the fact that no two days are the same, problem solving and creating tangible products that benefit people in real life. Perhaps you'll be inspired to apply for one of our apprenticeship vacancies after seeing a sampling of responses on what they most enjoy about the industry (click on the photo to read their Q&A):
