Female engineer in the spotlight

Charlotte Tingley
Current holder of the prestigious Young Woman Engineer of the Year award stars in apprentice film.

Charlotte Tingley, an ex-apprentice from our Electronic Solutions business in Rochester, Kent, who is also the current holder of the prestigious Institute of Engineering and Technology – ‘Young Woman Engineer of the Year’ title is starring in a new film. The film is produced by the National Apprenticeship Service to inspire young people about apprenticeships in manufacturing.

Charlotte, 23, said:  "As a teenager, I was inspired by the problem solving nature of engineering, and, today, I hope my experience will continue to encourage more women to choose this career path in the future. Joining the apprentice programme in 2006, Electronic Systems has provided a great platform for me to access the proven benefits of apprenticeships and develop my career in an exciting industry.”

Today, Charlotte has a key role in the Typhoon programme production team; working on our advanced fighter pilot helmet - widely regarded as the world’s best-in-class. Her highly technical job involves analysing data for corrective improvements.
