Jessica Tozer, Technical Team Leader at Stevens Traceability Systems is delighted to be on the judging panel at this year’s EEF Future Manufacturing Awards.

The awards celebrate the success of UK manufacturers and apprentices and entries for the award categories are submitted by regional. The regional award winners are automatically entered for the national awards, with the national winners being announced at a prestigious gala which takes place in London in January 2019.

Having won the EEF Apprentice of the Year Award in 2016, Jessica went on to speak at a parliamentary summer reception for British manufacturers at the House of Lords in Summer 2017. Jessica’s speech described what it’s like to be a young woman entering the manufacturing industry, and how apprenticeships are a great way to bring new talent into the industry.

Two years later, Jessica now manages a Stevens technical, service and calibration engineers in the South of England.

Jessica will be helping to judge this year’s nominated apprentices both regionally and nationally and continues her great relationship with EEF, where she undertook her apprenticeship at their training centre in Aston, Birmingham.

“Without my apprenticeship, I wouldn’t be where I am in my career today. Not only did I get paid during my training, I learned so much from the course as well as my employer. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending engineering apprenticeships to anyone, every day is different in manufacturing and engineering, you never get bored.”
