Orion Goes International

Posted: May 19, 2017

Simon Adams joined Orion in july last year as our Automotive Electronics and Engineering Recruitment consultant, focusing mainly on the UK and European market.

Last week, Simon was given the opportunity to travel to Frankfurt, Germany to meet with the clients he has been forming a relationship with, since the early stages of his career at Orion.

We asked Simon how his  trip went:

 

What is the next big thing in Engineering?

Posted: Nov 21, 2016

Engineers are behind the design, build and use of just about everything that makes 21st-century life what it is. And it’s cutting edge engineering that continues to turn science fiction into science fact. So, what’s the next big thing in engineering and what are the challenges that engineering may have to tackle in the future?

If anyone might have a knack for spotting engineering trends it should be the judges of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s MacRobert Award.

Tomorrow's Engineers Week

Posted: Nov 08, 2016

 

This week is Tomorrow’s Engineers Week.
This is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on engineers and engineering careers. In the hopes it will highlight to young people the incredible things engineers work on and the range of jobs available in the industry.


Engineering companies are projected to need 182,000 people with engineering skills each year up to 2022.

A career in Engineering - Apprenticeship or University?

Posted: Nov 03, 2016

If you’re considering a career in engineering after graduating from secondary school there are two distinct paths that you can take, engineering apprenticeships or a university degree. Each path has pros and cons and each maybe more suitable to different types of learners.

The most obvious distinction between the two is with an engineering apprenticeship you are working, earning and learning on the job from the very start. Whereas with a degree you are purely studying your chosen subject.

Where are all the women?

Posted: Oct 19, 2015

The UK continues to struggle to fulfill its need for skilled engineers yet it’s crazy to uncover how much potential talent is missed with the lack of “women in engineering”. It makes interesting reading to see that from the overall undergraduates majoring in mechanical engineering in 2014 only 16.3% were women and even less at 11.1% majored in Electrical Engineering!

Drive to boost employment for women in Engineering and Construction

Posted: Feb 05, 2015

The government is supporting a drive to encourage more female representation in some of the UK’s most male-dominated sectors, such as Construction and Engineering.

Despite the many benefits that working in this way can bring – such as flexible hours and the ability for contractors to set their own pay rates – these fields tend to be dominated by male members of staff, perhaps due to long-ingrained stereotypes.
