Creative Career Paths: A Panel Discussion with WYWB
I am currently in the final year of my Mechanical Engineering degree and I have just completed my apprenticeship and now have a full time job as a Manufacturing Engineer Trent 700 Component Owner and a Computer Aided Process Planner (CAPP) in Hucknall, where we manufacture Outlet Guide Vanes (OGV’s). I am heavily involved in transitioning our plant from an old system called TIMES, which is used to edit manufacturing instructions to Siemens Teamcenter.
As a Rolls-Royce and Nottinghamshire County STEM Ambassador, I regularly participate in STEM enrichment activities that involve career discussions as I am very keen in sharing my experiences, including the barriers I overcame to get into engineering and being able to go into schools and motivate young girls and women into studying and exploring engineering, making them believe that they already have what it takes and guiding them through the opportunities available and how they can access them.
