The 5th edition of ATA Recruitment's Annual Salary Survey Report is available to download

Welcome to the 5th edition of ATA Recruitment’s annual salary survey report, this data has been generated from the placements we made in 2021, with a view to giving a real time overview of the average salaries offered across the UK.

This will be the second salary report we have released since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic back in early 2020. When comparing the two reports, it's safe to say the differences are tenfold. From the shift to a heavily candidate driven market, to the further implications of Covid-19, Brexit and IR35, 2021 has been a year unlike any other. As one would imagine, the impact of these different elements has led to a dramatic change in salaries recorded in our 2021 report. To help you keep track of these events, we have also provided you with a timeline of key moments and statistics throughout 2021 that have had an impact on average salary changes.

With average salaries and expert commentary from our specialist consultants and managerial team, we have compiled the Annual Engineering Salary Report 2021 based on the thousands of placements made throughout the past 12 months.

Covering the following disciplines, we have answered some of the most common questions we get asked, as well as providing you with the quantitative data from salary trends:

  • Maintenance & Service

  • Quality & Manufacturing

  • Design & Projects

  • Technical Sales

  • Executive
