BDO launches initiative to recognise emerging talent in Midlands manufacturing

BDO has launched its inaugural Future of Manufacturing initiative, designed to recognise emerging talent in a sector integral to the future prosperity of the Midlands.

The accountancy and business advisory firm is calling for nominations of people under 40 who are making a real difference, not only to the business they work for but the regional marketplace as a whole.

BDO is looking for young talent who currently work at a Midlands-based manufacturer (with a turnover of £10m-£300m) in a senior role. This is defined by (but not exclusive to) strong leadership skills, a minimum of five years’ industry and/or professional experience, advanced qualifications, leading or helping to drive significant projects or initiatives and notable contributions to the business and/or industry.

Jon Gilpin, partner and head of manufacturing in the Midlands, said: “Talent is vital to the success of every business. Each and every day, we see examples of young people who are helping to drive the agenda and no more so than in the world of manufacturing – a sector that we are firmly committed to, thanks to the strength of our client base and the in-depth knowledge and expertise of our team.”

He added: “Inspired by these stories, we want to uncover the future talent of Midlands manufacturing and gain a real understanding about how they see the market evolving in the next 10 years. This isn’t a report by numbers; this is an initiative centred around people and the very personalities that are driving change and helping the sector emerge stronger from the global pandemic.”

The Future of Manufacturing aims to uncover how the market will evolve in the next decade through the lens of key people. Entries for the Future of Manufacturing close on 19 November 2021.
