Your aeronautical recruitment questions, answered

What should I include in a job description for aeronautical engineers?

There are many different types of airspace engineer, so job descriptions will vary widely between roles and workplaces. It's vital to include any particular qualifications that new hires may need, along with the skills, such as those in mathematics, science, computers and more. If you're looking for certain soft-skills, such as problem-solving or strong communication, make sure you include that, too. 

How can workplaces attract more diverse aeronautical engineers?

Engineering has traditionally been a male-dominated industry, but more and more women are studying STEM subjects and qualifying as engineers. This means there is a little more diversity among candidates these days, but still not enough. 

What benefits do aeronautical engineering professionals want?

The benefits that most professionals want are: flexible working; support with mental health, training and wellbeing support; and on-site subsidised facilities. See more in our Salary and Recruiting Trends Guide for 2022.

How can organisations help their aeronautical engineering teams develop?

As well as providing internal mentorship programmes and career guides, workplaces could consider investing in an e-learning service. Our online training platform, Hays Thrive is available to all organisations and can be tailored to your workplace and/or specific departments.

What can workplaces do to improve engineering staff retention?

According to research by Hays, only 44% of engineering professionals rate their work-life balance positively - 10% lower than the entire UK workforce average.
