Home to thousands of companies and some 12 million people, in London you can find almost any type of engineering role the UK has to offer. Whether you are a sound engineer looking for employment in music, film or TV, or an IT engineer seeking to lend your skills to one of the capital's many large service sector businesses, London almost certainly has something for you.
Much of London's economy is centred around service industries and retail. Compared to some other cities, there aren't that many manufacturing sites per square mile in the capital. Having said that, there are plenty of exceptions. Indeed, there are some air and land systems engineering opportunities in and around the city. BAE has headquarters in the capital, and there are exciting opportunities to be sought at one of the world's biggest defence contractors.
There are also plenty of opportunities for technical engineers, particularly in the areas of buildings safety and maintenance. There are many large offices and centres in London that require on-call engineers. Often these staff are supplied by companies who specialise in the sourcing of engineers and technicians. Specialist recruitment agencies can often help both client and candidate by pre-screening and matching an engineer's skill to the company's needs, saving both time and money.
