Wire & Cable Industry Young Person of the Year Award 2021.  The award will recognise the effort and abilities of the next generation of talent within the wire and cable industry.

“The recipient can be from anywhere within the wire and cable industry, but they must be under 30 and have worked for a member company for at least 12 months” explained Andy Lewis, Executive Manager. A shortlist will be drawn up from the list of applicants, and short listed candidates will be invited to attend our ‘Virtual Wire & Cable Event’.
