Following on from the success of the Pathways to Professions events run by the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership, the National Careers Service is offering careers advisers and those giving advice to young people in the West of England the opportunity to hear from key industry professionals in the Engineering sector.
Underfall Yard is hosting this event and you will be able to hear from Rachel Gollin who is a mechanical engineer, responsible for maintaining the 1907 pumps, training volunteers to run the pumps, giving demonstrations to the public and helping to design educational activities.
