Pegler Yorkshire promotes the industry to young people

Pegler Yorkshire

Pegler Yorkshire is supporting children and young adults find their ideal occupation by invoking enthusiasm from an early age for careers in its industry. Among the initiatives is participating with Doncaster Metropolitan Council in a programme of community engagement with 10 and 11-year olds and sponsoring a high-achieving student at a Doncaster secondary school.

‘It is very important to us that we address the skills shortage and highlight the multitude of careers that a company such as ours can offer,’ said Phill Jackson, business development and marketing director. ‘For us, it is about tapping into that energy and enthusiasm at an early age and showing them that a company like ours is not only about the manufacture of product but a plethora of career opportunities namely product designers, engineers, marketers, sales, accountants and skilled trades people.’
