Finning holds exclusive rights for the distribution of Cat® equipment and products in the UK and Ireland. The company is determined to buck international trends and attract a more varied talent pool by supporting diversity through recruitment, including, but not limited to, gender diversity candidates with disabilities, people from black or minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and those from socially deprived areas.
Finning is taking a range of positive steps to help improve upon the latest figures released by the Women’s Engineering Society which revealed that just 14.5% of engineers globally are female, and statistics unveiled by the Association for Black and Minority Ethnic Engineers (AFBE-UK) which show that only 9% of UK-based engineers are from the Black, Asian, Minority and Ethnic community.
As a leading global company Finning understands the benefits that colleagues from different backgrounds and with varying experiences can bring to the business. The company’s award-winning apprenticeship programme offers amazing opportunities for people to gain qualifications, skills, and a life-long career within a forward-thinking, dynamic, and professional organisation, whether they have just left school or college or are looking for a new challenge.
