Media release: Randstad Singapore launches the Engineering Challenge
Randstad Singapore has launched the Engineering Challenge, an interactive mechanical engineering quiz, in close cooperation with engineers of the Formula 1 Williams Racing team.

The Randstad Engineering Challenge is aimed at professionals in mechanical engineering and consists of three laps, each open for a week. The smartest and quickest problem-solvers will be in the running to win great prizes, such as tickets to a Formula 1 race, an exclusive visit to the Williams factory in the UK, and a meet-and-greet with Williams engineers on-site. It is the second time that Randstad is running this global campaign. This year, the Engineering Challenge is being held simultaneously across seven countries: Canada, India, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland and the USA.

The Randstad Group has over 55 years of experience in all areas of engineering. “Engineers are problem crunchers, and the Engineering Challenge appeals to that,” says Joost Schriever, responsible for the Williams partnership at Randstad Holding. “Promoting education and career opportunities in STEM profiles is crucial in a labour market where technical skills are in high demand. With the Challenge, we hope to attract more engineers and help to fulfill the increasing demand for this target group.”

Randstad has been an official partner of Williams since 2006. The partnership has resulted in many events on and off the tracks. One of the joint initiatives is the Randstad Williams Engineering Academy, enrolling top students in an e-learning programme that is combined with regular mentor support from Williams and career guidance from Randstad. The Engineering Challenge is the latest initiative resulting from the partnership.
