Excellence in Engineering: How to find the right Engineer

Topic: How to find the right Engineer

Speaker: Jonathan Hawkins, Technical Director, Newbury Innovation

This month’s Oxford Business Breakfast is seeing a slightly different format. Under our ‘Excellence in Engineering’ campaign and held at the brand new UTC Oxfordshire campus, Jonathan Hawkins, Newbury Innovations Ltd, will be discussing how to find the right engineers for your business.

With the combination of treatment of engineers in the UK and the constant changes in the education system, it can be extremely difficult to find competent and capable engineers. This lack of skills can have a negative impact on UK plc’s ability to deliver state of the art technology, an essential requirement for economically advanced nations. Jonathan’s presentation will look at the results and methods of a company having found a way to overcome these problems.

After the presentation, guests will also have the opportunity join a tour of UTC Oxfordshire and their on-campus facilities, including the first in-school cryogenics lab, a composites lab and an engineering bay containing a Mini available for students to work on.

Attendees will gain:
• Knowledge of potential pitfalls and traps when selecting engineers
• The skill to recognise attributes a useful engineer will need in today’s market
• Insight into how to attract and find quality engineers for businesses
