Morson International sponsors Rail Engineer of the Year

Morson International, one of the leading recruiters for the UK rail industry, will sponsor the Rail Engineer of the Year award at this year’s 9th RailStaff Awards.

The RailStaff Awards take place on 10th October 2015 at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. The rail engineer of the Year Award 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.

‘The UK’s rail infrastructure development continues to gather pace; it’s an exciting time to work in the industry with many large scale projects underway or planned in the near future.

‘Morson International has always placed great importance on championing the UK’s rail workforce. To win Rail Engineer of the Year is a great accolade for any engineer in the industry, and with so much exceptional talent it will be a tough decision for the panel to make.’

Says Tom O’Connor, Managing Director of the Rail Media Group, ‘We welcome Morson International to the biggest and best RailStaff Awards yet in our new venue at the Coventry Ricoh Arena.

Morson International has been a strong and valued supporter of the RailStaff Awards for several years now reflecting a sustained and expanding contribution to the rail industry. Railways need more engineers; positive, motivated individuals investing their careers in the railway boom that looks set to continue for a generation and beyond. To back engineering, encouraging all engineers, is the responsibility of us all. Morson sets the pace and people from Morson thread the industry with professionalism, dedication and ingenuity. Thank you, Morson.’
