National Manufacturing Day - 7 July 2022


National Manufacturing Day will take place on Thursday 7 July 2022. Manufacturers across BCP will throw open their doors and invite people from the local community to come and have a look at all the cool things they do and make.

Visitors will have the chance to see the potential careers and jobs on offer within our wonderfully diverse manufacturing sector – there are career opportunities for school leavers, graduates and people looking to reskill at all levels.

Most local people aren’t aware of what goes on behind the closed doors of manufacturing facilities, so this is a perfect chance to get to see all the amazing machines, processes, technologies, and people that make up our manufacturing community and find out about the exciting opportunities that are available to work in a fast-paced, creative and high-tech environment.

Businesses will be offering tours and activities throughout the day to really show off what they do.
