S1 jobs: Influential Women in Engineering

To celebrate National Women in Engineering Day on 23rd June 2015, s1jobs has made it their mission to talk to the female engineers of Scotland about their work.

Sadly they couldn’t hear from them all, but they were lucky enough to sit down with three highly-respected female engineers from different areas of the industry. They asked them all a series of questions, and have picked out some of their favourite answers for each!

The engineers are: Grace Baxter, Kate Dapre, and Margi Vilnay
