Engineering is widely accepted as one of the hardest sectors to recruit for and the skills gap and talent shortage in the engineering sector is well documented. On average, the UK produces only 46,000 engineering graduates a year and an article by The Telegraph highlights that the country needs 1.8 million new engineers and technicians by 2025 if the sector is to grow. The lack of engineering graduates means that the majority of the industry is comprised of experienced professionals but as they retire or leave the country, skill gaps in the industry are expected to appear.
As a result of the limited candidate pool, engineering firms compete for the top talent all year round and typically use agencies to facilitate their recruitment drive.
