Nationwide search for young manufacturing 'stars' is launched

07 March 2012

Business minister Mark Prisk has launched a nationwide search for the 'Make it in Great Britain 30 Under 30', a search for 30 young rising stars employed in the manufacturing industry, all aged under the age of 30. Nominations are invited from all areas of manufacturing, from fashion and textiles to aerospace. Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts, who will be looking for truly exceptional young employees across the full range of sectors.

‘30 Under 30’ is a part of the Make it in Great Britain campaign, which aims to challenge outdated opinions and transform the image of modern manufacturing. Once selected, the ‘30 Under 30’ will play an important role in promoting manufacturing careers to the next generation, highlighting the diversity of jobs in the sector which include design, sales, marketing and business management.
With multiple routes into manufacturing careers, including apprenticeships and pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Maths (STEM) at college or university, it is hoped that the ‘30 Under 30’ will encourage more young people to see the opportunities the industry has to offer.
