Engineering jobs coming to Wales

Engineering jobs coming to Wales

The outlook is largely positive for engineers in Wales at the current time, with the latest research on the subject suggesting job prospects in the country are likely to pick up over the coming months. Manpower's Employment Outlook Survey questioned 2,101 employers across the UK about their plans for the next year. It focused on areas such as whether they are planning to take on more staff in the near future, or if they are instead thinking about cutting positions at their workplace. Figures taken from the research suggest the picture is becoming steadily more positive in Wales, with particularly strong times lying ahead for the engineering and hospitality sectors. Manpower revealed Wales is currently performing at a superior level to the UK average when it comes to employers planning to hire new staff. Andrew Shellard, operations manager at the organisation, has been speaking about the trend seen in Wales and how it is great news for the nation. In particular, it seems the third quarter of this year will be a positive one. Commenting on the likelihood of a strong quarter for the country, he stated: "This has been driven by a marked pick up in the engineering and hospitality sectors. We have noticed an increase in vacancies for toolmakers and CNC machinists within the engineering sector and due to a lack of candidates with the skills needed, these roles are difficult to fill." With the latest findings in mind, young people across Wales could be wise to think about their career prospects and potentially seek to gain qualifications or experience in an area that is likely to boom in the coming months and years. This could put many in line to secure the engineering jobs that are set to come their way. Engineering is a hugely appealing sector in which to work, and it seems many people in Wales might just be about to get the chance to enjoy it and the prospects it offers.
