Manufacturing industry 'in need of younger workers'

The manufacturing industry is currently badly in need of more young workers, including those in sales jobs, to help the industry to flourish, one expert has stated.

Stephen Melia, events coordinator for the Make It campaign, noted that the UK has a "vibrant" manufacturing industry that contributes £200 billion a year to the nation's economy, but companies find it hard to recruit young people because of the poor image the sector has.

He explained that, through engaging with those who are still considering their career prospects, it could be possible to demonstrate that manufacturing has a range of opportunities.

"The average age of an employee in the manufacturing sector is 46 years old. The sector suffers from an ageing workforce, which in turn is creating a skills shortage for employer," he elaborated.

Mr Melia said that, as the government is looking to rebalance the economy in favour of a stronger manufacturing base, there are likely to be even more jobs created, boosting sales recruitment prospects.
