The past 12 months have been an unpredictable time for employers and candidates alike. Many employers have reassessed their recruitment strategies, as the effects of COVID-19, mass furlough and multiple lockdowns continue to have a huge impact on day-to-day operations. Whilst those that can have been quick to adapt and implement a COVID-19 secure workplace, the knock on effects of the choppy economic waters we have seen over the past 12 months are impossible to ignore.
Likewise, the attitudes of candidates have changed, with many considering new career opportunities thanks to the shift from office based to remote working, amongst various other factors. In a survey we conducted at the end of last year, we found that 64% of those who are looking for work are currently employed, showing that now is not the time for complacency from employers when it comes to staff retention.
With all this uncertainty and the undeniable shift in the employment landscape, we are providing employers with a benchmark of where you sit in the market - ensuring your recruitment strategy is based on first hand research and up to date statistics from across the UK.
For candidates, we are giving you the insights into the average salary of dozens of roles across various engineering disciplines, helping you make an informed decision should you be considering a career change in 2021.
