Trojan’s operations director David O’Keeffe has been asked to be a judge at an electronics skills competition in Swansea. O’Keeffe leads the company’s contract electronic manufacturing (CEM) department, which provides services to organisations across a wide range of sectors.
O’Keeffe will bring his extensive knowledge of electronics to the judging panel of the Skills Competition Wales Industrial Electronics Final, which will take place on Monday 27 March 2017 at Gower College Swansea.
O’Keeffe will observe the competing electronic engineers during the competition, as well as take part in an electronic engineering engagement fair.
Two of Trojan’s CEM apprenticeships, Stefano Amoruso and Liam Griffiths, will also be present at the event. The former Gower College Swansea students will assist with the manning of Trojan’s exhibition stand and be on hand to speak with competitors about what it’s really like to work in the CEM industry.
David O’Keeffe commented:
“I am really pleased to be a part of the Skills Competition Wales Industrial Electronics Final with Gower College Swansea. It is events like this that help encourage young people into the electronics industry through generating a better understanding and showing what the sector is really about.
“Young people often have misconceptions about electronics and the many career opportunities that working in the sector can offer. Having our own apprentices with us, who competitors can really relate to, will be of great benefit to those who are passionate about starting a career in electronics.
“We look forward to representing Trojan at the event and seeing all the talented competitors, who will no doubt be part of the future of the electronics industry.”
