We have a proud history of training apprentices and developing the next generation of engineers – and that means we also work hard to promote careers in engineering and inspire the engineers of tomorrow. Our industry is facing a skills shortage and research shows that many young people aged 11 to 19 don’t know much about what engineers do or the many career opportunities it provides - and we want to change that.
Bringing buildings and infrastructure to life is central to the NG Bailey vision and our long history in the rail sector has seen us improving the travelling experience for rail users at some of the busiest stations in the UK.
In the run-up to National Apprenticeship Week, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and remembering when senior project engineer, Nathan Willmott, visited No. 10 Downing Street to meet the then Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
NG Bailey was founded in a basement in Leeds in 1921 with 12 employees carrying out domestic electrical installations. Today, we are still family-owned but have grown to become one of the UK’s leading independent engineering and services businesses working across numerous infrastructure sectors.
