WES signs SME Graduate Employment as first Start-Up Partner

SME Graduate Recruitment is the first Partner to sign up to the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) brand-new Start-Up Partnership grade. WES has designed the Partnership to assist the next cohort of engineering businesses to pledge their support to diversity in engineering.

The new Partnership category has been created to ensure that all organisations can gain support for their equality, diversity and inclusion goals no matter their turnover or infancy. The Start-Up Partnership is targeted at organisations in their first three years of registration and with less than £250k turnover.
