The fact that the UK is producing less than 25% of the engineers it needs to keep the industry growing is really worrying.

What it does mean however, is that it is good news for people like you, who have the opportunity to train and go into the industry at a time when there are many technological advances. The industry desperately needs people to train to become engineers, meaning salaries are above the national average.

Engineering can be a very rewarding industry, projects that you could become involved with may be standing in history and society for many years to come.

Norfolk and Suffolk is a great location for those seeking a career in Engineering. From Formula 1 to food processing, this sector employs 10,000 people (10.3% of the workforce vs 9.5% nationally), and is hungry for more.

There are many different types of engineer, so it’s almost guaranteed there will be something for you! Why not take a look and see what’s waiting for you?

Did You Know?
The Suffolk Engineering sector employs approximately 11,000 people.
