Women in Engineering: FTL Team Spotlight

As a leading engineering company in the UK, we take great strides in valuing each employee. We are an equal opportunity employer and we are opposed to discrimination on any grounds.

Engineering is vital to the UK- it contributes 26% to our GDP but the UK has the lowest percentage of female engineering professionals in Europe at less than 10%; while other countries like Latvia, Bulgaria and Cyprus have nearly 30%.

Latest statistics published by Women’s Engineering Society reveal that 11% of the engineering workforce is female. Now whilst this is a positive rise from 9% in 2015, there’s still much more that can be done to increase diversity and to enable women in the UK to take up engineering.

Did you know that companies are 15% more likely to perform better if they are gender diverse? A diverse workforce encourages different perspectives, ideas and drives innovation.

Here at FTL Technology, we have a plethora of talented women who are very passionate about the sealing and materials industry. They enjoy working with companies across all industries including Aerospace & Defence, Oil & Gas and Chemical Processing to name a few; and they are committed to working in partnership with our customers through honesty, integrity and collaboration.

After all, we’re problem solvers who enjoy a challenge!

As a team, they are responsible for the internal management of allocated accounts, dealing with enquiry orders, project management and contract review. For many of our customers, they will most likely be your first point of contact.

So to put a face to a name, you can learn more about the key members of staff below...
