Mackley to sponsor STEM careers event

Mackley has agreed to sponsor an interactive one-day event designed to celebrate, and raise the profile of, young people’s achievements in science and engineering.

The Big Bang Fair South East takes place at the South of England Showground, West Sussex on 28 June and is organised to encourage more young people to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives.

In addition to its role as main sponsor, Mackley will also be represented at the event’s accompanying exhibition, located on stand R14 (indoors).

With more than 8,000 young people set to attend, the Big Bang Fair is a STEM careers fair with a difference. The event links future employers with young people, and aims to inspire them to study STEM subjects and consider meaningful careers in these areas.

Organisers describe the event is a ‘full-on, noisy, fun day’, designed to enable companies to establish connections with like-minded individuals, businesses and organisations from across the region.

David Knapp, Mackley’s Business Development Manager, said:

“We are delighted to sponsor the Big Bang Fair South East, particularly as the event focuses on the STEM sector.

“Encouraging the right calibre of young people to consider a career in civil engineering, with all the opportunities and challenges it offers, is vital for Mackley and other companies in the sector.

“We are very much looking forward to the event itself, which we hope will provide us with the opportunity to meet the local young engineers of the future.”
