Becoming an Engineering Contractor can have its attractions, getting involved in exciting projects such as Cross Rail or the Olympics, whilst enjoying higher rates of pay and having flexibility around working hours.
Engineering skills are important to the UK economy and engineers will be in demand with around 1.25million science, engineering and technology professionals being required by UK Plc by 2020.
This demand raises a challenge to accademic institutions to supply the necessary skilled professional engineers. What will probably happen is that here will be a shortfall in the supply of professional engineers and this will make contracting engineering roles very lucrative in the short/medium term.
Whilst there are benefits to being an Engineering Contractor, you need to be aware that the majority of the work is project based and you need to be organised to ensure that you do not spend significant time ‘on the bench’ between projects.
