It will also help us to connect with student engineers and apprentices and promote our vacancies and company profiles to a community of over 40,000 people. 

Volvo Bus UK & Ireland is focused on creating a diverse and inclusive organization. This is central to our people and cultural journey as we look to harness innovation, diversity of thought and perspectives that both develops us as a business, and gives us a competitive edge in a fast moving and dynamic industry. We are proud to have formed an alliance with the Women’s Engineering Society, to assist us in driving forward a programme of collaborative initiatives to meet our desired talent outcome.   

- Nick Page – Managing Director Volvo Bus

The Women’s Engineering Society performs such an important role in supporting and inspiring women in engineering, science and technology arenas and I am delighted that Volvo Penta are partnering with WES.  Women make up 14.5% of all engineers, and it is essential that our industry embraces all opportunities for diversity and inclusivity.

- Samantha Hindson – Local Manager Volvo Penta

I am are extremely excited that Volvo Trucks is to be partnering with WES. Not only will it hopefully help to strengthen their drive and mission, but will help us meet our own Diversity challenges and deliver on our future aspirations.

We need to help remove the perception of typical male roles or typical female professions. Once we get our head around the fact that every human is suited for a specific job regardless of gender or other stereotypes, true diversity will emerge. I see it as personally very important that our organization is mirroring the society we live in. This reinforces our important base line ‘To move the world we want to live in. 

- Christian Coolsaet  - Managing Director Volvo Trucks

We’re proud that Renault Trucks, part of Volvo Group UK, has partnered with WES. We’re committed to encouraging more women into our exciting and evolving industry. We’re already working hard to identify and break down the barriers that women face within the engineering and the transport sector and are have several live initiatives to try and attract more women in our industry through focused recruitment strategies. Females already make up 37.5% of our senior management team but we recognise that we still have much more work to do to ensure more balanced female representation at all levels in our organisation.

We believe that all employees have the right to be treated with both dignity and respect, at all times. By setting the right example and providing equal opportunities for women within all areas of our organisation, we’re ensuring that we have an inclusive and diverse environment where all staff are supported and inspired to reach their full potential. This will naturally have a positive impact on our productivity, efficiency, and ability to attract the very best talent into our teams for generations to come.
