BGEN and Barrow Raiders encourage the next generation of women

BGEN and Barrow Raiders encourage the next generation of female engineers and rugby players

Barrow Raiders has announced an exciting new partnership with BGEN.

The organisation employs more than 1,000 employees and specialises in digital, electrical and mechanical engineering, with clients including FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies, such as AstraZeneca, British Steel and National Grid.

One of the key aims of the new partnership with the Raiders will be to encourage more women in the area to try something different, such as rugby league and engineering. As part of this, BGEN will become the main commercial sponsor of the club’s Raiders Girls side – an initiative that encourages young women aged five-16 to get into the sport.

The firm supports locally when delivering projects for its clients and will continue to do so against initiatives set out in its ESG strategy – this sponsorship being the latest example.

Steve Neale, Chairman, Barrow Raiders, says, “As part of the club’s commitment to increase female opportunities and participation levels across the local area, this new partnership makes total sense for both parties.

“Gaining the support of a high profile, reputable and esteemed organisation like BGEN is fantastic for the club and area as a whole, and we are delighted to welcome them to the Raiders family.”

Adele Neale, Commercial Manager, says, “Having worked with BGEN since December 2022, we have built a good working relationship with them and know exactly how community-driven they are.

“As a club, we work very hard to make our sponsors feel incredibly special and encourage them to buy into our wider ethos, which is to improve the lives of the people closest to us.”
