Where there's a Will there's a way - 27 July 2018

Where there's a Will there's a way

We are is delighted to welcome Will Hugill to our team of engineers, applied mathematicians and technology specialists.  He joins us after graduating from Loughborough University with a First-Class Honours degree in Aeronautical Engineering; something he can be very proud of after the years of hard work and dedication.

Will was one of many who applied to join our team when we advertised for a graduate engineer position. The quality of the applicants was outstanding, giving Will some very stiff competition and we are grateful to all those who were interested in Norton Straw and wish them well in their engineering careers.  We will start advertising again for next year in the not too distant future!

Dr Matt Straw, Norton Straw's Managing Director commented that "It is fantastic to welcome Will to Norton Straw's team. I congratulate him on his degree and know that he will have great opportunities to put his skills into practice as well as develop many new ones through the wide range of work, industries and clients we support."

The sustainability of our growth and success is directly related to how our team continues to develop both in terms of size and technical capability.  In the last few years we have grown significantly in numbers, our service offering and the industries in which we work.  We are now supporting industries including oil and gas, power generation (in many forms), chemical process, aerospace, ground transportation and food.  This is a direct result our team's desire, and our company' commitment, to development.

Finding new talent to join our team, across all levels of experience, is a significant challenge, and it is something we invest a lot of time in.  Following Will's arrival, over the next month or two, we will be welcoming another engineer on a year-long placement from their Masters degree and a year 11 pupil, from a school local to our Derby office, interested to learn what a career in engineering and technology might mean.  Alongside all of this we will be on the search for more talented individuals to join the Norton Straw team; watch our careers page for more!
