Kenwood invests in British engineering and innovation talent

13 September 2012

Small kitchen appliance manufacturer, Kenwood has seen 16 members of its engineering department awarded Qualified Chartered Engineer status.

Chartered Engineer status is the internationally recognised standard that demonstrates supreme depth of knowledge and experience. With a combination of academic qualification, training and ten or more years of relevant engineering experience, it takes upwards of a further 18 months to satisfy the requirements to become fully qualified.

The title ‘Chartered Engineer’ is protected by Civil Law and each successful applicant has to meet a specific combination of qualifications, experience and competences, laid out by the Engineering Council UK. The process is rigorous, including formal assessments of the applicant’s career history, and culminates in an interview conducted by independent experts. 

The Award Ceremony was held in July at Kenwood’s Cooking Academy. Mark Organ, IET Head of Membership, presented each newly Chartered engineer with a framed certificate to commemorate their achievement.

Mark Welch, Kenwood CEO, commented: “This is a fantastic achievement for Kenwood’s Engineering Department. As a market leader in the supply of small kitchen appliances, it’s important that we continue to invest in talented staff, which is crucial for the development of new and innovative consumer products.”

A further ten of Kenwood's engineers are working their way towards Chartered Engineer status.
