Civil Engineering Sector Shows Strong Growth
Posted on: 27/04/2015

Research conducted by accountancy Nixon Williams shows that the civil engineering profession has grown by almost a fifth in the last year alone.

This is based upon the growth of more than 24,000 new employees working within the sector, an increase of 17.7%- its most dramatic growth for five years.

Practice manager of Nixon Williams said: “The UK engineering sector has seen its strongest year of jobs growth since the recession, and has cemented its status as one of the key drivers of economic output in recent years.

“Employers are increasingly reporting that a shortage of engineers is a threat to their growth plans and are struggling to find the skills they need in the marketplace.

“If the current rate of job creation is maintained, the size of the engineering workforce will exceed 2009 levels later this year.

“Despite the recovery in jobs, pay growth for engineers has been relatively subdued. We are seeing this phenomenon elsewhere in the economy where employers have opted to recruit graduates into entry level jobs and train them internally rather than recruit experienced, and often higher paid, candidates.”

This growth is exciting news for those involved with the industry and exemplifies the increasing amount of opportunities available for those working within the civil engineering sector.
