The manufacturing sector, careers film and resources

Our new film, an introduction to the manufacturing sector, is now available!  This short film can be shown in assemblies, lessons, or to small groups of young people to raise awareness of one of our key local industries! The film features Andrew Churchill of local high tech manufacturing company JJ Churchill talking about the sector.

We would like to thank Andrew Churchill and the JJ Churchill company for their time in making the film.

The film was created to raise awareness of opportunities in the sector, which employs 58,000 people across the LLEP area, and has opportunities at all levels. There are also a wide range of apprenticeships on offer across the sector. Some of our key employers in the sector are Dunelm, Crown, Taylor Hobson, Fisher Scientific, Ibstock Brick, Morningside Pharmaceuticals, Caterpillar, Sofidel, Oadby Plastics, Nylacast and Preci-Spark.
