Your engineering job questions, answered

Is demand high for engineering professionals?

Yes. Engineering employers are struggling to secure the professionals they need, with 92% saying they experienced skills shortages during 2021. So, if your skills and experience match the job description of a vacancy you're interested in - now's the perfect time to apply. For more information, see our Salary and Recruiting Trends Guide.

What qualifications do I need for a job in engineering?

Engineering covers many different industries and sectors, so this depends on where you want to specialise. You could study for a degree in an engineering or technology subject, gain qualifications via City & Guilds, or work towards a National Certificate or Diploma, to name just a few options.

What skills are engineering employers looking for?

The soft-skills that are in-demand for engineering professionals right now are: communication and interpersonal skills, the ability to adopt change, problem-solving skills, flexibility and adaptability, and the ability to learn. To build on your talents in these areas, visit Hays My Learning.

Should I look for a permanent or contract engineering job?

That depends on your lifestyle. Contractors can typically earn more money than permanent staff due to being paid on a day-rate basis, but permanent staff have the security of a long-term job and income. There are pros and cons to both.

How can I prepare my CV for an engineering job vacancy I want to apply for?

As with all CVs, keep it as concise as possible. Highlight your technical skills and qualifications. Remember to only include relevant past experience and consider adding a personal statement at the top. For a more in-depth look at creating the best CV you can, see our guide here.
