For International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) we're profiling some talented women engineers whose careers are truly thriving at Schneider Electric

Meet Stacey Evans-Lloyd. She's an Engineering Apprentice at Schneider Electric. She has benefited from great company support, and has helped inspire other women to also pursue an engineering career.

Stacey shares why she chose to become an engineer, what attracted her initially to Schneider Electric, and what advice she'd give to other women interested in her industry.


What is it like to work in Schneider Electric? 

I go around the different departments and learn on the job. I am currently in the tendering team where I quote for ranges like Acti 9 and Canalis Busbar.

When and why did you decide to become an engineer?

I decided to become one at college because they helped me to realise that I could be more than an electrician with the skills and qualifications I possess.

Why Schneider Electric?

I chose Schneider Electric because my college helped me to find apprenticeships and Schneider Electric was the best one I could find.

How has Schneider Electric supported your career?

Schneider Electric has giving me many training opportunities to help me advance my career.

What has been your career path up to today?

This is my first job, so I only had school and college before this. It’s a great way to get into the world of work.

How has flexibility supported your career choices and options?

Being able to go around each department as an apprentice helps with this because I can see what job opportunities are available for when I come to apply in the future.

What has been your most rewarding experience as an engineer?

My most rewarding experience so far was being able to attend the apprenticeship show. I helped to inspire many women and explain what the world of engineering is really like.

What has been challenging as an engineer?

My most challenging experience so far has been presenting. Whilst I have not always been very confident, Schneider Electric has helped me to find suitable ways to prepare and improve my ability to present.

What's your advice for women interested in engineering?

I would say, never let anyone get you down. It is a hard enough job to get into as a woman, so you should be proud to have come this far. The only opinion that truly counts is your own.

Who has been your greatest support at Schneider Electric?

I believe that my fellow apprentices have been my greatest support. This is because we can all relate to situations that appear to be troublesome or worrying. I know that I could go to any of them for advice.
