Colleagues, Engineers & Technicians,   I am proud to be a Trustee of the IET, and, as a serving Royal Air Force (RAF) Engineer Officer, my pitch in last year’s election was of representing the Armed Forces community of Engineers and Technicians.  While my day job is in acquisition and support of aircraft, I currently am the Defence Engineering Champion.  Thus, I thought I would give you a glimpse in this blog of what we think about the current people challenge, and what we are doing to try and address it.   read more...
