Leading recruiter gets behind push for engineers of the future

Leading recruiter gets behind push for engineers of the future
 
CBSbutler, the specialist technical and engineering recruiter is getting involved in the local community to promote engineering, science, technology and maths as a career. In conjunction with SATRO they are working to help promote and sponsor the SATRO Science & Engineering Festival on 22nd June 11 which will be held at Brooklands Museum in Weybridge.
SATRO has existed for more than  years as a charity which brings together educational establishments and business to provide a vital link by facilitating relationships through developing and running programmes within schools that enhance young peoples understanding of business, science and technology. The festival has been running for over ten years and offers teams from local schools the best possible opportunity to showcase high quality science and engineering projects devised and built during the current school year. The festival will be opened by celebrity guest Jon Tickle, better known for his appearances on Brainiac, and Big Brother.
As well providing the 10,000 needed to save the festival this year due to local council budget cuts, CBSbutler is sponsoring two of the cash prize competitions on the day: Best STEM teacher of the Year and Best Year 9 project, and is also sponsoring the 'Working World' marquee which showcases local STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) businesses and organisations. These can range from Engineering and Biology Societies to multi-national companies and small charities. Students will be able to interact with the exhibitors and ask real scientists and engineers questions about their companies, skills needed and personal experiences.
Commenting on CBSbutlers involvement on the project, David Leyshon, Managing Director of CBSbutler said:Engineering jobs are among the hardest to fill in the UK, with estimates by the Engineering & Technology board that the UK needs 60,000 engineers over the next six years to plug the skills gap. It is crucial therefore that more is done to encourage our young people into engineering and technical careers and thats why we are very pleased to be involved in such a worthwhile project.
