Morson International, top technical recruiters, will sponsor the Rail Engineer of the Year award at this year’s 8th RailStaff Awards.
The RailStaff Awards takes place on 25th October 2014 at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. Rail Engineer of the Year provides an opportunity to recognise the importance of a job that requires dedication, expertise and immense responsibility.
Morson International has a comprehensive rail operation that supplies a broad spectrum of skilled personnel to rail projects across the UK and overseas.
Gary Smithson, Associate Director at Morson, comments: ‘We are delighted to support and sponsor the Rail Engineer of the Year category at this year’s Railstaff Awards. The awards highlight the exceptional work that the UK’s rail workforce does on a daily basis.
‘Morson International has provided skilled rail engineers to the industry for over four decades and continues to work with some of the nation’s most respected operators, and on the country’s highest profile projects.
‘With new and increased investment in the UK’s infrastructure, we are in an exciting time for innovation in the industry. Morson International is proud to recognise the achievements of all those nominated at this year’s awards.
‘In a field that has been experiencing a notable skills shortage, Morson International is eager to raise the profile of engineering and encourage those joining the industry to specialise in a skill that is much sought after in projects across the UK.’
Says Tom O’Connor, Managing Director of the Rail Media Group, ‘We welcome Morson International to the 8th RailStaff Awards. Morson International has been right behind the RailStaff Awards for several years now reflecting its growing
and dynamic presence in the new rail industry. Attracting and retaining more engineers is essential to the future of the industry. Getting the message across that railway engineering is rewarding, worthwhile and a great career is important and is the responsibility of us all. Every project bears witness to the high levels of skill and hard work we see among our engineers. We should never take it for granted. People from Morson consistently demonstrate high levels of professionalism and ingenuity. They are an inspiration.’
