Steven Harris, Engineering Specialist at Hewett Recruitment:

"Over the last 12 months we have seen significant growth in the number of opportunities in the local area, not only for skilled engineers, but also for general manufacturing candidates. This in combination with the skills shortage, has provided candidates with huge purchasing power. With this in mind, engineers are considering all aspects of the benefits package such as salary, annual leave allowance, progression opportunities and pension when choosing a new role."

Since 2020, salary packages have increased dramatically; new shift patterns have been trialled to offer more appealing working hours, and in some cases, annual leave entitlements have been increased, where traditionally manufacturers fell behind with many offering statutory leave.

Following the pandemic, engineering and general manufacturing candidates are seeking opportunities with well-established companies without a history of layoffs and those offering a better work-life balance. Overtime, shift patterns, remote working potential and daily commute factors are brought into consideration more than ever when considering new role.
