Williams backs government skills reform at F1 Live London

14 July 2017

At the F1 Live London event, alongside mayor Sadiq Khan, Williams pledged to boost technical education opportunities to find the next generation of engineers needed for the UK to compete at the pinnacle of motor racing.

The Williams Group, which includes Williams Martini Racing and Williams Advanced Engineering, used the F1 event in Trafalgar Square to invite ambitious young people to apply to its Randstad Williams Engineering Academy, Engineer of the Future award, and for 75 active vacancies – 36 on the Formula One side of the business, and 39 vacancies at the company’s Advanced Engineering business.

At the event, Williams emphasised its commitment to nurturing young talent and building for the future. It currently has a total of 30 apprentices and placement students, and employs 98 people under the age of 25. Williams also highlighted its support for the the promotion of STEM subjects and practical technical education.

‘One of the pillars of Formula One today is education, and we are fully supportive of this aspect,’ said deputy team principal Claire Williams. ‘We have a history of nurturing some of the sport’s brightest minds. I urge the rising stars of tomorrow to apply to our Academy programmes, Engineer of the Future award, and various internships and apprenticeships today.’

Human resources director, Nicola Salter, added: ‘For 40 years, Williams has been at the forefront of engineering innovation. Many of the sport’s legendary engineering figures began their career at Williams so we know the importance of practical, technical education to learning a craft. To produce a new generation of engineering stars for Formula One, and the wider industry, we are passionately supporting STEM subjects and we’re delighted with the Education Secretary’s recent pledge to boost technical education and welcome her bold reforms to kick start a skills revolution.’
