Harvey Hudson Wins Apprentice Of The Year at Young Engineers’ Awards

We are delighted that one of the first students to enrol on our Net Zero Apprenticeships programme has won the Technical Apprentice of the Year (Level 3-4) award at CIBSE’s Young Engineer Awards 2022.

Harvey is a 2nd year Technical Apprentice with Vital Energi and studies at The City of Liverpool College. As part of his apprenticeship, he has been working in various departments ranging from work winning through to commercial and design and he is now moving onto the site-based part of his experience.

Harvey isn’t just a great apprentice, he’s also a fantastic ambassador for apprenticeships. He’s spoken at events about the benefits of apprenticeships and to audiences ranging from school children to industry experts and he had had a real impact in promoting, not just our apprenticeship programme, but apprenticeships in general. “The first group of apprentices to enrol on our course have been wonderful. Their team ethic has been fantastic and the way they integrated into their various teams and began making valuable contributions has been inspirational. We are all very proud of Harvey for winning this award. Vital Energi are committed to inspiring the next generation of young engineers, so this has been a fantastic first year for the programme."

The CIBSE Young Engineers Awards recognise and reward the innovative thinking, hard work and skills of graduate engineers, whilst also showcasing employers who are truly committed to developing and encouraging young talent. This is the third year of the Apprentice of the Year Category, with awards being presented in a London-based ceremony on October 11th.

Harvey spoke of his win, saying, “A lot of people have put a lot of time into developing my career and getting me to this point and I’d like to say a big thank you to them.  I’ve really felt at home since joining Vital Energi and tried to embrace every experience and opportunity and I’ve been supported by some really great people along the way.  The other young engineers on the shortlist were very strong, with some amazing achievements, so it was a surprise to win and I’m truly honoured.  I’m now looking forwards to my second year and continuing to learn and gain new experiences.”
