Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Gibbons is looking ahead to their next 50 years in business and is keen to inspire the future generation of engineers.
The number of opportunities available to young people pursuing a career in engineering are not always widely known, and not enough young people – especially girls – are considering a career in engineering when they think about their futures.
As partners to the government-led Year of Engineering last year, Gibbons took part in a number of activities to highlight the varied career opportunities the industry can offer.
As part of its efforts, the business hosted an open day for local school children and will be repeating the day once again this year.
School children can expect a tour of Gibbons’ offices and workshops and some hands-on engineering activities to take part in, giving them an insight into the challenging and wide-ranging careers available to them in the industry.
