Randstad launches The Engineering Challenge

Today, Randstad launches The Engineering Challenge, in close cooperation with engineers of the Formula 1 Williams Racing team.

This Challenge is aimed at professionals in mechanical engineering and consists of three ‘laps’, made up for a series of multiple-choice questions, over the course of three weeks, from March1st to March 21st . The smartest and quickest problem-solvers are in the running to win great prizes, such as tickets to a Formula 1 race and an exclusive visit to the Williams factory in Grove (UK), and a meet and greet with Williams’ engineers on site. It is the second time that Randstad has run this global campaign. This Engineering Challenge will run simultaneously across seven countries including: Canada, India, Singapore, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and the USA.

Within the Randstad Group, we have over 55 years of experience in all areas of engineering. “Engineers are problem crunchers, and the Engineering Challenge appeals to that,” says Joost Schriever, responsible for the Williams partnership at Randstad Holding. “Promoting education and career opportunities in STEM profiles is crucial in a labor market where technical skills are in high demand. With the Challenge, we hope to attract more engineers and help to fulfill the increasing demand for this target group.”

Randstad has been an official partner of Williams since 2006. The partnership has resulted in many events on and off the tracks. One of the joint initiatives is the Randstad Williams Engineering Academy, enrolling top-students in an e-learning program combined with regular mentor support from Williams and career guidance from Randstad. The Engineering Challenge is the latest initiative resulting from the partnership.
