IET Futures Fund Sponsorship

The electrical community covers a broad umbrella of jobs and skillsets, from STEM initiatives in primary schools through to electrical engineering positions in multi-national companies. As part of our integrated ESG strategy, and with community in mind, we joined with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in supporting the next generation by providing sponsorship and bursaries to undergraduates engaged in relevant degrees.

The IET Futures Fund takes applications from thousands of students every year seeking to be recognised as one of the Engineering and Technology world’s rising talent. Each year they join a cohort that gain support – financial and career-wise, from the IET and their chosen sponsors for the duration of their degree studies.

In the 2022-23 academic year we became one of the IET Futures Fund sponsors, taking on three students each on a 3-year course (or 4-year where they were required to have a year in industry). We were delighted to meet these students – and others also part of the program – at various touchpoints through the year, and were bowled over at their enthusiasm and passion for their chosen industry.

As the 2023-24 academic year is now fully underway, we’re delighted to be able to share that we have reaffirmed our commitment to the Future Fund programme, supporting not just these three individuals in their second year of studies, but also taking on three new undergraduates as they start their further education.

We look forward to meeting these students at the upcoming launch events and sharing in their journey as they too become part of our electrical community.
