King's Lynn's Mars Food female project engineer encourages girls and women to take up careers in the industry
Women or girls considering a career in engineering should pursue their ambitions and not be deterred by suggestions that it's a "boys' club" role, according to a female project engineer at Lynn's Mars Food UK base.
The company is backing this year's International Women in Engineering Day on Sunday, a campaign to raise the profile of women employed in the industry and showcase career opportunities available to girls.
Jessica Mason joined Mars in September 2016, initially starting out on the two-year engineering graduate programme, known as the Mars Engineering Development Programme, before progressing into her current role as a project engineer.
