Attracting new talent into engineering
We’re increasingly hearing from our clients in more traditional sectors that they are finding it difficult to attract talent.
We’ve been working with one of our longstanding clients, ISF, a privately owned process engineering business, based in York, which specialises in the animal feed sector, to tackle this issue.
With a 30 year history, the company has built a 24 strong, loyal team which includes a highly skilled and experienced team of project managers, designers, welders, sheet metal workers, and sales and finance professionals. The company has consistently taken on young apprentices, many of whom have gone on to develop their career with ISF.
With the aim of inspiring and exciting today’s young and more experienced talent, we worked with Hidden Door, to create a series of videos to show what it is like to be part of the ISF ‘family’ working ‘behind the scenes’ at the company.
Getting to the heart of the business, the videos demonstrate the loyalty and passion of the employees, and the type of work that they do, taking projects from creation through to delivery.
We are all thrilled with how the videos turned out and they will be used in presentations at schools and colleges and on digital and social platforms to inspire potential new talent to join the ISF team.
Not only that, the videos played a part in ISF winning The York Press ‘Small Business of the Year 2019’. This was testament to the team recognising their strengths internally and having the confidence to enter the award.
