Women in the Automotive Industry

Women in UK automotive manufacturing are outnumbered by men three to one according to the Skills & Demands from Industry-2015 Survey, IET and currently female talent accounts for just 9% of the UK’s overall engineering workforce, so there is significant potential to attract more women to this thriving sector.

The Retail Automotive Industry influences everyone, from delivering goods on time to commuters travelling to work and emergency services being able to respond to crises, the motor industry helps to keep the country moving.  There are over 150 different job roles available win technical and non-technical roles such as Marketing, HR, Administration, Sales and Finance.

Support for your schools to inspire The Future of Automotive 

Inspiring Women: Working together to help young women achieve their potential

The national Inspiring Women campaign launched October 2013 and already has 20,000 amazing women ready to talk with girls in state schools about the ‘job they do’ and route they took. Our ambition is to see these women from a wide range of occupations going into state schools collectively talking to 500,000 young women. We already have 20,000 women so let’s make it 30,000 by 2017!  You can be an 18 year old Apprentice or a CEO, work for yourself or for a multi-national, be working full-time, part-time or having a career break – girls in state schools want to hear about your job, career and life experiences.  The programme is entirely free – for state schools and employers – and is a simple way to volunteer for one hour a year and make a real difference to the aspirations of young women. It is all run through our safe, secure online system on the website

Speakers for schools

Speakers for Schools is an independent education charity that provides young people in UK state schools with access to leading figures, for inspirational talks, free of charge.  By sharing top-level experience, inspiration and insights, our purpose is to level the playing field of opportunities for stimulation and encouragement by those who shape the world of today.
