Annual Engineering Insights 2023

Christian Addison, Director

​​The 7th edition of ATA Recruitment's Annual Engineering Insights is available to download

For 7 years, we have been producing Salary Reports to show how salaries have changed over time. For 2023, we have expanded on this data to provide you with not only average salaries, but with detailed market insights and changes in candidate behaviour.

2023 was another interesting year for UK manufacturing and engineering from a recruitment perspective as the skills gap continued to widen. With 932,000 vacancies at the end of Q4, many customers continued to report issues not only with their candidate attraction but more so with their retention.

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

  • Mid Management

  • Executive

This data has been generated from the placements we made in 2023, along with various industry survey findings. We trust this will give you a real time overview of the recruitment landscape and average salaries offered across the UK.
