Element Energy begins partnership with the Social Mobility Foundation

Posted on

As part of our drive towards a more diverse workforce, Element Energy, an ERM Group Company, has established a partnership with the Social Mobility Foundation (SMF). The SMF is a charity which supports young people from under-represented backgrounds into university and employment, offering a support network they may not have elsewhere.

Element Energy, like many companies in the STEM sector, is committed to increasing the diversity within its workforce in line with the wider UK population. We believe that engaging with colleagues with a diverse set of experiences and abilities will increase the impact of our work, in particular given that the impacts of climate change disproportionately affect those from the most marginalised backgrounds. To date we have hosted an insight webinar for interested students and graduates to introduce our work, provide insight into our recruitment process, and outline how to make a successful application. In August 2022, we will host a sustainability session as part of the SMF-led placement for Year 12 Biology & Chemistry students, introducing the current UK energy mix and the work we are doing to support the transition to net zero.

We are excited to continue our collaboration with the SMF to further improve diversity, equity and inclusion at Element Energy.
