Giving back to our communities

We believe it’s our responsibility to contribute to our communities by supporting local community groups, encouraging STEM education for young people and supporting future engineering talent.

The British Engines Community Fund provides funding to local charities, youth and community groups that need support to keep up their good work.

Each year, our employees have the chance to nominate a cause to receive funding, allowing us to support initiatives that are close to their hearts.

Last year, we donated over £11,000 to support a wide range of projects. From providing equipment to children at local sports clubs, to helping students deliver disability awareness training to local employers.

Since 2022, we have sponsored a teacher who provides technical education at schools in disadvantaged areas of the North East. We hope the scheme introduces more children to engineering subjects, opening up and improving their future career prospects.

Since 2008, group company, Michell Bearings India has sponsored two local schools in India, supporting the development of the local community in Bangalore. The sponsorship has helped the schools to carry out repairs, build extra classrooms and create new facilities, including a computer room and outdoor play equipment. We also provide funding for an English and IT teacher!

In partnership with the Greggs Foundation, we sponsor breakfast clubs at two local schools to help the children get a nutritious start to their day. The funding helps each school run a free, daily breakfast club by providing fresh bread and a grant to help with running costs.

To celebrate our 100 year anniversary, we asked children at our breakfast clubs to design posters showing what the world might look like in 100 years’ time. A winner from each school was chosen, each receiving a Kindle for kids and Greggs vouchers!

Each Christmas, we come together to donate food, toys and money to local food banks as part of Christmas Jumper Day.

For the last three years, these donations have been boosted by an annual donation of £10,000 from the British Engines Group, to help support disadvantaged people in the local area.

We believe it’s important to support those who protect our nation. That’s why we are proud to sponsor the Armed Forces Covenant, which helps members of the armed forces community to access discounted services as well as support with education, wellbeing, home ownership, starting a new career, healthcare and financial assistance.

We play an active role in the Reserve Forces and Cadets by supporting military reservists who work for us. We are also a Bronze Award holder on the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme, which recognises support from UK employers for defence personnel.

Support for armed forces

We work with local education providers to encourage students to consider a career in engineering. As part of this, we organise school visits where our employees help students to gain an understanding of the opportunities available to them in engineering.

In 2021, we donated £100,000 to the TDR Trust to boost STEM training in the North East. The donation was used to improve TDR’s training facilities, including the development of a STEM conference centre, and to support the trust’s school programmes which are designed to engage young people in STEM activities.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We want our people to feel free to be themselves without fear of discrimination or prejudice. We are committed to providing a safe, inclusive and respectful working environment that recognises our people as individuals. We believe that building a diverse and inclusive workforce that celebrates our differences is key to solving the complex challenges facing our changing world.


Celebrating Success

We love to recognise the achievements of our people. Taking place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, our Annual Awards Night is a glittering evening where we come together to celebrate our people, highlight exceptional innovators, recognise outstanding apprentices and say a big thank you to our longest serving employees.

As an apprentice, you’ll get to learn on the job while meeting lots of new people. You’ll get to hear different points of view as well which helps you to develop as a person. I’m really glad I chose an apprenticeship because it's taught me how to be accountable and responsible both at work and in my personal life.

My favourite thing about working at CMP is being able to just crack on with my job knowing that, whenever I am unsure about something, there is always someone there to give me advice.

Olivia Knox

CMP Products

Colleague Stories

Olivia was studying a degree in Maths when she realised she wanted to learn in a more hands-on way. She began her manufacturing apprenticeship at CMP in 2021.

I originally chose to do a degree in Maths because I wanted to get into engineering. However, I didn’t really enjoy it because it wasn’t hands-on, so I dropped out. After doing a bit of research, I decided to apply for a job at British Engines. The highlight so far have been the transition from college to a working environment and the amazing support I have received!
