The search continues for talented young engineers in the UK
RS Components has put out a final call for entries to EW BrightSparks 2019, an initiative that searches for and highlights the brightest and most talented young engineers in the UK today.
Open to nominees based in the UK and aged between 16 and 30, the closing date for this year’s nominations is Thursday, 28th February 2019. Nominations can be submitted via www.electronicsweekly.com/brightsparks/ either by the nominee or a third party.
For the third consecutive year, the company is partnering with Electronics Weekly to run the initiative, which as in previous years is not limited to just one winner. It is intended to celebrate a group of young engineers who could already be making a difference in the first years of their working life or may still be in education and showing excellent promise toward becoming the next generation of engineering leaders and innovators of the future.
“The BrightSparks programme is one of many initiatives pursued by RS to address the critical skills gap we have in our industry by helping to nurture the next generation of engineers that will be required to grow the electronics sector in the UK,” said Lindsley Ruth, CEO at Electrocomponents. “As we approach the deadline for nominations for this year’s programme, we are keen that as many deserving nominees as possible take the opportunity to enter. Gaining a BrightSparks award has proven to be a major stimulus for many of the programme’s award-winning engineers from 2017 and 2018, spurring them on to new heights and to achieve even greater things.”
