The team won the “Careers Inspiration in Business (1-249 employees)” award for their work in STEM and supporting careers events at local Court Fields School in Wellington, Somerset.

The business was nominated for the award by Charity Hunt, Careers Advisor at Court Fields School.

Charity said “I nominated MK Test to say thanks for their support this year. Many congratulations to the team!”

MK’s New Product Development Manager Nick Baker and Electronics Design Engineer Yassin Rostom accepted the award, with Nick saying “The award means a lot to us. Working with local young people is so valuable, as we know that what we get to do provides inspiration for the next generation of our potential future colleagues.”

Managing Director Carl Bullock added, “I’m so proud of the team for winning this award. It’s great to see the work we’re doing with local schools is inspiring the next generation of engineers.”
