Murphy Surveys proud to be part of campaign to get kids excited about careers in surveying
We’re delighted to be involved in sponsoring the latest #GetKidsIntoSurvey campaign. The PR initiative led by Elaine Ball takes a long-term approach to tackling the skills shortage in surveying around the world and aims to help businesses and educators encourage more children and young people in schools and youth groups to take up surveying as a career.
Colin Murphy, Development Director of Murphy Surveys UK comments,
“In order to sustain our industry for the long-term, we all need to play our part in encouraging more young people to join our profession. We’re excited to be part of Elaine’s initiative and encouraged by all the work she’s doing to raise awareness within schools, not only in the UK and Ireland, but further afield in the US. The posters that have been developed as part of this campaign are colourful, fun and easy to understand and a refreshing approach to attract attention and address the skills shortage.”
“Supporting #GetKidsintoSurvey is part of our overall school initiative which includes visits to local schools to demonstrate the rewarding and valuable benefits of a career in the geospatial industry, more recently visiting Heathland Primary Academy School in Birmingham and North Leamington School in Warwickshire. We have more activity planned for 2019 and look forward to sharing our knowledge with surveyors of the future.”
“I am delighted to have Murphy Surveys involved in our campaign to #GetKidsintoSurvey”, comments Elaine Ball. “It is important to us to get the support of the survey community to help impassion children and teenagers about careers in surveying; and by visiting the schools building relationships with the future generation of surveyors.”
“The campaign includes a series of posters providing a colourful illustrated scene within the built and natural environment designed to get children thinking about how we measure our environment. It’s packed with interesting things to find while showcasing some of the amazing jobs surveyors do such as topographical surveys, road surveys, aerial surveys and much more.”
