Scarborough Engineering Week

Scarborough Engineering Week 14-16 October 2013

The fourth Scarborough Engineering Week (14-16 October 2013) has been hailed as a success by businesses, schools and school children.

The event which is aimed at promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects to young people has grown in size and momentum over the past four years. The Firth Firmac Group once again supported the event, with apprentices including Mechanical Machinists and Mechanical Fitters, Electrical Engineers, CNC Machinists and HVAC Mechanical Engineers on hand to meet with the young visitors and talk about their apprenticeships.

“Engineering is the life blood of any manufacturing business and there are boundless opportunities for good engineers”, explains David Elwick, Production Manager at Firmac.

“It’s important that the next generation is aware of these opportunities, many of which are on their doorstep. This event is one way in which local businesses come together to showcase their businesses and the career opportunities to the next generation of engineers”.

The Firth Firmac Group has apprenticeships in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, control systems, software integration and programming and 3D CAD design. Competition for the places is strong and to apply for an apprenticeship applicants must be at least 16 years old.

If you are interested in a Firth Firmac apprenticeship please contact the General Manager, Simon Morrell.
