Morson Projects, a multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy, has welcomed its first female engineer apprentice at its Hull site.
Hannah Lee, 19, was recently accepted onto the company’s Early Careers Development Programme as an Apprentice Design Engineer and is the first female candidate to join the team in Hull.
Hannah says: “Throughout school my favourite subject was Design and Technology, I have always been very interested in designing and was sure that there was a career for me in the engineering sector. I completed work experience in a civil and structural engineering firm and began searching for a way into my dream career in engineering.
“Following a successful interview, I was asked if I would like to take the position as an Apprentice Design Engineer for Morson Projects. It wasn’t a difficult answer, with my love for aviation and strong passion for design, it was a definite yes.
“I have only been with the company for 8 weeks, but can already see the future prospects the company holds. I attended the Early Careers Day as part of the Early Careers Programme, this was an amazing experience to have so early into my career, it allowed me to meet and learn from other graduates in the early careers programme and gave me an insight into the size and scope of the company and the future that I could have with Morson Projects.
“In five years I will have completed my Level 3 Engineering Design and Draughstperson and I hope to be well into my degree in engineering.
“I aim to be a more confident and capable engineer and to have had the chance to work on a variety of projects that Morson Projects have lined up in the future.”
Morson’s Early Careers Development Programme has been created for engineers, by engineers. Designed to attract and retain the best future talent it allows Morson Projects to continue to deliver market leading engineering consultancy solutions to its clients.
Jordan Knapp, Chair of the Early Careers Development Programme, shared: “Our Early Careers Development Programme has been created for engineers, by engineers. It has been designed to attract, develop and retain the best future talent in our industries to allow Morson Projects to continue to deliver market leading engineering consultancy solutions to our clients.
“We do this by empowering our early careers employees to take ownership of their own continual professional development with a structured career path framework.
“We’re absolutely delighted to have Hannah onboard, she is already proving to be a valuable member of the team, and I look forward to seeing her journey progress, aided by a wealth of knowledge and support around her, here in Hull and across the wider business.”
