Aerospace division attend Northwest Aerospace Alliance Conference

Posted by: Katherine Garratt 22 May 15 - 11:05AM  | Aerospace
Peter Heap and Matthew Heath of the Jonathan Lee Recruitment Aerospace, Defence and Aviation Division attended the NWAA’s (Northwest Aerospace Alliance) second Annual Conference in Blackburn this week. With a large number of representatives from a range of aerospace organisations in attendance, this well presented and detailed regional aerospace gathering enabled a range of guest speakers to confirm the status of the global aerospace sector as well as discuss the opportunities for innovation growth and R&D funding.

With presentations from GKN, UKTI, AMRC and the AGP, the aerospace sector continued to confirm its’ growth position on a global basis with an ongoing demand for civil aircraft. The UK has 3000 aerospace sector suppliers and employs 230,000 personnel. Commentary was provided in reference to the ongoing supply chain challenges of quality and delivery conformance as well as the opportunity for R&D funding through the UK Government for the SME.

Matthew Heath, Managing Consultant of the Aerospace and Defence Division commented:

“It was a very detailed event which really showed the capabilities and mix available within the North West in support of the Aerospace sector. It was a pleasure to attend, and as a sponsor to the event, show our commitment to the sector and region. We will continue to work closely with the NWAA and its members to secure talented individuals as the sector continues to grow and prosper.”
