Most Chartered Engineers occupy managerial or consultancy roles, with higher paid positions going to individuals with years of experience in the industry.

Civil Engineers are highly sought out by construction, gas and water, transportation, and environmental companies.

This is why Systems Engineering is one of the most in demand jobs out there. Salaries can easily reach £60,000 for more senior positions and are around the £25,000 mark for graduates.

Systems Engineers are in demand by a wide range of companies within the commercial domain. These may include automotive, construction, aerospace, manufacturing, and telecommunications sectors. Much like Civil Engineering, there is a great opportunity for career advancement, making this career path a very lucrative one.

Electrical Engineer

The design, development, and maintenance of electrical systems is an essential part of many industries and as such, very much in demand. It is unlikely that Electrical Engineering will go out of fashion any time soon and with an average starting salary of £25,000 and as much as £80,000 for managerial roles, it is a rewarding career path.

Site Engineer

Infrastructure projects such as rail, civil, and road require precise planning and technical expertise to run smoothly which is where Site Engineers come in. Fully trained engineers are currently in demand due to the amount of construction projects taking place in the UK and are unlikely to go down whilst the economy is growing.

Graduate training schemes are a major entry point for this job and with an average starting salary of £25,000 not a bad way to commence a career. Career progression into a Site Manager, Senior Engineer, or Project Manager brings its own benefits. Namely a salary of around £60,000 and some pretty comprehensive benefit packages.
