Manufacture a career at engineering fair

Some of the Black Country’s leading engineering employers have been invited to showcase opportunities and to help raise the aspirations of young people in the Wolverhampton area.

School pupils, college students and undergraduates from across the region have all been invited to the event, which takes place at the University’s MD Building, at its City Campus, on Friday, January 31 between 10am and 3pm.

At the fair, visitors will be able to find out about careers in engineering, meet face-to-face with potential employers, learn about vacancies, apprenticeships and training opportunities, and apply for university and college courses.

On the day, there will be more than 20 exhibitors including blue chip companies Jaguar Land Rover, HS Marston Aerospace, Carillion and Eaton.

The fair has been organised as a collaboration between the University, Wolverhampton City Council and City of Wolverhampton College.

Krystyna Nosek, Head of the University’s Work Placement Team, said: “The Fair provides a great opportunity for the Council, the College and the University to work in partnership and engage leading employers in a project aimed at helping young people from the Wolverhampton area to secure a brighter future.”
