THE Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) has awarded engineering and design consultancy firm Optimus Services Limited (OSL) a silver corporate partnership status for its commitment to mentoring programmes, and its accredited training scheme.
Hull, UK based OSL has had a corporate partnership with IChemE since early 2014, and has been upgraded because of its continuing commitment to professional development, in particular supporting its staff working to become Chartered engineers, and helping to cultivate young chemical engineers at school and university.
Alastair Robertson, principal director at OSL, said, “We believe that every engineer's competencies and capabilities should develop and improve over time, and this is something we embrace within our company. This is a significant achievement for a company of our size but it demonstrates what SMEs can do with determination and passion.”
David Brown, IChemE chief executive, said, “It’s great to see an SME-sized engineering consultancy like OSL championing Chartered status amongst its younger chemical engineers. They’ve got an eye on the future too and their work in the local community, and at school and university level, plays a big part in securing the talent pipeline.”
