We met potential engineers of future when we attended the University of Southampton’s careers fair.

Our Director Tim Reid and Senior Structural Engineer John Harrison manned a stand and talked to students about graduate opportunities with REIDsteel.

We were among 105 exhibitors at the All Sectors Fair at the university, which has a highly regarded engineering faculty with a reputation for producing excellent graduates.

John (pictured) said: “We were very impressed by the students, who were bright and enthusiastic.

“Their quality shone through and there was a huge demand for summer internships.

“We were inspired by the event and we are attending more career fairs to explain the opportunities for career progression at REIDsteel.

“As well as attracting some of the brightest graduates, the fairs also help us raise our profile within the engineering community too.”

Our stand included a rolling video, displays and information about REIDsteel. It was our first careers fair. We’re now due to attend a second event at the University of Portsmouth.
