Michael Coates, Manager Recruitment & Development, Cummins Engine Company said:
“We have approximately 150 vacancies at any one time; 50 opportunities for experienced engineers and 100 for graduates and one year placements. We find the National Engineering Recruitment Exhibition a good source of high calibre candidates for all levels and a significant number of candidates we met at the last event went on to be invited to interview with us”.

The interactive elements of previous shows will also be built on, such as the ever-popular engineering challenges hosted by exhibitor INPUT. These challenges give visitors the chance to put various skills to the test and provide a platform for them to discuss their career plans with industry experts.
Venture Marketing Group Ltd has also announced plans to relocate the 2005 NER/NCR, taking place 6 and 7 May, to London Olympia. Previously located at Wembley, London , the move is aiming to improve accessibility to the exhibition for both exhibitors and visitors and to take advantage of the extensive facilities Olympia offers
