Flintshire maintenance company C&C Catering Engineers Limited has declared its intention to grow its headcount by employing more engineers.
The 15-strong outfit, which rebranded from Catering Engineers (NW) Limited in March, says its recruitment drive will be supported by a campaign highlighting opportunities in the engineering industry for those without market experience.
C&C requires extra staff to help it provide emergency repairs and preventative maintenance services to restaurants, schools and local authorities.
Company director, Julie Dewar, says she welcomes applications from all qualified engineers, but currently with an all-male staff, would be delighted to receive interest from female engineers too.
Given the traditionally male-dominated composition of the sector, Dewar is especially keen to present the same opportunities to women who wish to succeed in the role and dispel the perceptions of engineering that have seen them under-represented in the field.
She adds that the firm also plans to hold an open day for local teenagers later in the year, aimed at inspiring young people who wish to explore a career in engineering.
“We are very much looking forward to welcoming local youngsters on-site to learn more about engineering.” she said. “We do hope we will have female interest too and can help to redress the current gender imbalance of the discipline, encouraging more young women to consider studying engineering.”
C&C Catering Engineers isn’t the only company looking for services personnel. Earlier today warewashing manufacturer Winterhalter stated that it is seeking a service engineer for the Worcestershire area.
