“We can’t wait for the opportunity of meeting a whole host of female talent, and breaking those stereotypes about embarking on a career in manufacturing. We are looking forward to showing you how exciting and dynamic joining the Ball Family can be – in beginning or continuing a hugely successful career where you will truly make a difference to the World by joining a company that has been working relentlessly to promote sustainability in all its forms – through its products, operations, and community support.”
Stella Mosely, Rolls Royce -
“We are pleased that Rolls-Royce are attending STEM Women for the 4th year running. We are excited to meet female STEM students to discuss the amazing opportunities at Rolls-Royce.”
Procter & Gamble -
“At P&G London Plant we have always empowered women through the iconic products we produce. A key priority for us is to continue to inspire them to succeed both personally and professionally by providing them with meaningful career opportunities from Day 1 in the field of Manufacturing. Manufacturing plays a pivotal role in achieving P&G’s aspiration to serve the world’s consumers better than our best competitors in every category in every country where we compete, and is automating and digitizing our equipment and improving processes to eliminate losses along the supply chain. A career with P&G London Plant would provide aspiring females with the opportunity to develop technical mastery by solving business-critical problems and to gain a unique experience in leading a large organization from the front lines.”
“Engineering is an exciting and highly rewarding career for everyone, regardless of gender, race or background. Despite this, the numbers of women entering the profession remain low.
“As part of Veolia , the world's leading environmental solutions company here at Veolia Water Technologies, UK we are passionate and proud of what we do and the impact that we can have on the world that we live in.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss current vacancies, career pathways and the work that we are currently involved with across the UK.”
Addressing the Gender Imbalance in Engineering
In 2019, just 10% of the engineering workforce was made up of women. The number of women in technical level roles, where job growth is greatest, is much lower. There is still much to do to support engineering and technology employers to increase diversity and to enable women in the UK to take up opportunities in engineering.
