Virtual Insight to Engineering
Multi-Employer Event

We’re hosting our virtual Insight to Engineering Multi-Employer Event and we’ll be joined by 5 of the biggest engineering companies in Siemens, Spectris, Vodafone, Equans and specialist university NMITE!

Each company will speak for 20 minutes, giving us an insight into their business and a taster of what it’s like working for the organisation.
