Craig Burton, managing director from The Works recruitment, said: “As a recruiter we are planning our talent pipeline for five to ten years. By engaging young people now and introducing them to the real opportunities in manufacturing, however a tiny part we can play, is the right thing to do and we’d encourage every employer to do the same.”
