Research shows that, even without a global pandemic, location, time and travel costs are significant barriers stopping early careers engineers attending careers fairs. Last year, we decided to do something about it. And so EngRec was born - In 2020, the event attracted more than 3,000 registrations and more than 1,700 individuals on the day . Exhibitors were able to engage young engineers, students and graduates and had the opportunity to talk to and recruit the best that engineering has to offer.

The 2021 exhibitors include:
