IOR's cool job campaign hits schools

THE Institute of Refrigeration is contacting more than 1,000 UK schools specialising in science and technology as well as Connexions careers centres to promote its 'Careers in Cooling' campaign.
The IOR has launched its UK-wide campaign to raise the profile of refrigeration and air conditioning engineering as a career.

Its website now hosts a short film which gives young people a flavour of the variety of job options and entry levels available, through interviews with people working as trainee engineers, designers, researchers and managers as well as those running their own businesses.

Members, industry bodies, employers and manufacturers are being encouraged to join in the campaign by distributing leaflets or linking to the website.

Guy Hundy, the IOR past president driving the campaign said: 'It's all too easy to forget about the needs of the future, especially in the current economic climate. But more legislation, new technology, environmental pressures, global competition and increasing complexity are demanding that our industry develop the very best skills now and for the years to come. The refrigeration and air conditioning sector has something to offer everyone whether they aspire to becoming a service technician, system designer, chartered engineer, researcher or salesperson. The IOR Careers in Cooling initiative reflects this diversity and dynamism'.
