What qualifications do I need for a job in manufacturing?

Manufacturing covers many different industries and sectors, so this depends on where you want to specialise. You could qualify by taking on an apprenticeship and learning while you work, or study for a diploma or degree in a specialised subject.

What skills are manufacturing employers looking for?

Soft-skills that manufacturing professionals are searching for 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 manufacturing job?

That depends on what's most important to you. 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 regular income. There are pros and cons to both.

How can I prepare my CV for a manufacturing 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.
