We are delighted to have been chosen by recently appointed Mayor of Guildford, Councillor Nikki Nelson-Smith.
Nikki’s vision for her Mayoral Year is “Inspiring Guildford’s Future Innovators”; she believes that young people should be encouraged, inspired and motivated to be the best that they can be; they should be better informed about the career choices available and increase their knowledge of the amazing career opportunities here on their doorstep in Guildford. The Mayor of Guildford, Cllr Nikki Nelson-Smith commented, “We are lucky to have so many world-class innovative companies in the Borough who are looking for bright and creative employees”.
Dr Beccy Bowden, CEO of SATRO said “We are honoured that Cllr Nelson-Smith has chosen SATRO to partner with to deliver her vision for young people in Guildford who are inspired by local career opportunities. We have a fantastic heritage of innovation in the town and we know that many of our companies are struggling to recruit people with key skills - I hope that our work this year will ensure that even more world class breakthroughs and developments happen here in the future.”
Over the past 30 years SATRO has worked with over 450,000 young people in Guildford and indeed across Surrey inspiring and enthusing them about science, technology, engineering and maths by linking businesses and young people together through their varied, innovative range of challenging hands on programmes. Nikki intends to support and inspire creativity in the young people of Guildford whether they be artists, technologists or scientists and to help them to aspire to their dream careers.
