Contact Field Service Engineer recruitment Agencies
Field Service Engineers work to perform maintenance and repair on various electronic and engineering equipment - working closely with customers and usually under zero supervision.
What qualifications will employers look for?
Field Service Engineers are advised to apply to desired positions with a 4-year bachelor's degree - but contrary to most other Engineering positions, working in Field Service may be possible with just an associate's degree or vocational certificate.
The importance of having a bachelor's degree comes from the simple fact that employment is easier with a background of practise and experience. In some cases, training programs are provided for high school graduates or applicants without a specialised Engineering degree.
Generally-speaking, a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering is known to offer the broadest training for this role - with a range of skills covered, including computer-aided drafting (CAD), Maths, Physics, and machinery. Taking the job's demands into account, it is important that applicants consider developing manual dexterity, time-management, communication and computing skills.
Salary levels and major employers
The average salary for Field Engineers lies somewhere between £29,000 and £40,000 per annum - with the possible addition of overtime. Some of the biggest graduate Engineering employers in the UK include organisations like engineering support company Babcock International Group, engineering and design firm Atkins, UK Power Networks, engineering and construction company KBR and NHS Clinical Scientists.
