Tuning up for a new career image

They were involved in the 'Rock Challenge' event, organised by Humberside Police, which saw us run workshops aimed at raising awareness of careers in science and engineering.

Schools were challenged to make an item and see it work before their eyes with a little held from our ambassadors.

Rebecca Brothers, our community advisor at Brough, said: "At BAE Systems we believe that it is vital to help and encourage individuals to consider a career in science and engineering and we actively support education and skills development in schools and colleges across our global business.

Career in science

"It was fantastic to be involved in this year’s Rock Challenge and we hope to inspire and excite the students about the world of engineering.”

The workshops were held at the city's Arena and saw BAE Systems people work alongside the Hull NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Humberside Police Dog Section to provide a range of workshops during the day to educate and enhance participants’ Rock Challenge experience.

Nationwide initiative

The Rock Challenge is a nationwide initiative which sees thousands of young people from schools and colleges take on the roles of the people behind staging a rock concert.

They then create and perform a five to eight-minute performance which reflects the group's personalities, concerns, hopes, dreams and interests.

The winning team from the day go on to represent the North at a regional grand final.
