Nominations are open for the CeeD Awards Young Person of the Year

 11th Dec 2018

Nine Twenty Manufacturing & Engineering are delighted to be headline sponsor for the inaugural CeeD Manufacturing Excellence Awards 2019, which are taking place in February to recognise and celebrate achievements in the manufacturing industry, both of established businesses and rising stars.  Managing Director Karen Stewart told us more about the event, and the special award that the business is also sponsoring.


"As well as being the headline sponsor for the awards, we are also extremely proud to be sponsoring the Young Persons Award on the night. Anyone who knows me or my business will know about my passion for developing our workforce of the future. I love nothing more than inspiring a young person to at least look into a career in the manufacturing, engineering or digital sectors.

CeeD Awards Young Person of the Year - Nine Twenty Engineering & Manufacturing

I stumbled into the manufacturing sector by accident when I started my career in recruitment, and completely fell in love with he industry. I had no idea of the opportunities that existed within this sector and felt cheated that no one had ever advised me to look into it as a career choice. In fact, my school pretty much only promoted traditional career routes like accountancy, law and teaching. and for much of my twenties I felt a bit of a failure for not following any of those paths.


I’m so pleased that I’ve now found the manufacturing sector, but do feel duty bound to let as many young people know about what opportunities lie within the four walls of a manufacturing plant – the list is endless! Myself and my team are proud to support many initiatives to showcase the sector.


The Young Person Award is one that is close to my heart and I am really excited about seeing the up-and-coming talent within the industry. It’s not too late to nominate, so if you have someone in your team or business who deserves some recognition within the manufacturing community then please nominate them by following this link:

Nominate now

I look forward to seeing you there on the night!"
