GLOBAL HIRING PROSPECTS FOR ENGINEERING SECTOR VERY POSITIVE

GLOBAL HIRING PROSPECTS FOR ENGINEERING SECTOR VERY POSITIVE
 
Market Report from CBSbutler outlines several hotpsots
 
A new hiring report covering the engineering sector from specialist technical recruiter CBSbutler has painted a positive picture of international employment prospects.  The report, which gives a snapshot of trends across the IT, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, defence and aviation sectors says that from a global perspective the technical and engineering sector overall is still a skill short market.
 
We have had several hotspots during the first half of 2009, says David Leyshon, Managing Director of CBSbutler. We have seen a 50% increase in demand for oil and gas engineering contractors for major overseas projects.
 
Additionally, with governments continuing to invest both in armed forces and homeland security, we have experienced increasing demand for engineering, IT and technical specialists for major defence contracts such as E-borders and the PFI Airbus project.
 
In the aviation sector, the market for contractors internationally is growing and there is a particular shortage of B2 Avionics licensed engineers. 
 
In building services, with major projects needing far more technology than ever before - security systems and energy saving initiatives for example, there has been consistent demand for engineering skills.
 
And in energy we are seeing continued and rising demand for emerging and re-emerging sectors such as nuclear and renewables.
 
Leyshon says that While there is no doubt that the economic landscape has given us some challenges domestically, engineering skills are very much in demand on a global basis.
