Cool careers to mark World Refrigeration Day

UK: To coincide with the global phenomenon that is World Refrigeration Day, this year the IoR will be running a live online Cool Careers Celebration on June 24.   

Everyone, members, students and the public is invited to take part in the event to hear what our industry is doing to raise awareness of career opportunities, improve recruitment and training and celebrate success. 

The event will be hosted by IoR president, Mike Creamer who will look at the IoR’s educational initiatives and the importance of addressing skills shortages for the future of our sector. 

The event, which will run from 15.00 to 16.45 (UK time), will also include presentations from chairman of the IoR education committee, John Skelton, on promoting careers to schools and encouraging diversity, and how to become a STEM Ambassador by fellow IoR education committee member, Jacinta Caden. 


Sharing their experiences on becoming an RACHP technician will be two of the country’s best apprentices and trainees, Gemma Weston of J&E Hall and Eastleigh College and Luke Haile of Lightfoot Defence and Eastleigh College.

In addition, Mark Forsyth of WorldSkills and previous Silver medal winner Chris Baillie will look at Worldskills UK as a showcase for UK engineering.

The webinar will also provide an opportunity to present the Institute’s annual Lifetime Achievement Award and Ted Perry Student Research Prize.
