Our community is full of bright and exciting new talent; we like to work with these groups and individuals so that we can best assist them in developing their skills for their exciting futures ahead. The ways in which it does Lighting Ltd does this are numerous however, our main avenues for assisting the community are to bring in Nuffield research students for work placements each year and to help our local schools with career workouts. Both of these enable us to work with very inspiring young people who are keen to learn and experience all a design practice has to offer including, our ground breaking research into lighting and health. We have engaged with some wonderful candidates and feel honoured to have helped them just a little with their career choices and work experience.
We are also STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) ambassadors where we actively encourage young people into science related careers. From experience, the team knows only too well, that the lighting industry is not normally a first choice career. We want to promote this exciting and innovative industry to young people so that talented youngsters will make lighting a career choice and be able to take the lead in future developments.
Even as a small company its important to us to give back in these ways and we continue to support our community when and where we can.
