With up to 7500 engineering vacancies open across the UK at any one time, there are many opportunities for job applicants to find employment in this industry. Berkshire is among the top 10 counties for vacancies in this sector, and thanks to some of the blue-chip firms with bases in the region it is easy to see why. Recruitment agencies regularly advertise openings in construction, rail, environmental, medical and electrical-based engineering roles, but it is the field of electronics engineering that has seen particular growth in the last 20 years. With Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Fujitsu, O2, Telefonica and Oracle among the names of multi-national corporations with a base in this county it is no surprise that demand for electronics engineers is particularly high.
Average regional salaries
Nearly a third of positions are available in the county's largest city, Reading, while a fifth of these are based in Slough. Maidenhead, Newbury and Bracknell (the UK home of BMW) also employ a significant number of engineers across a range of roles. Reflecting the expertise required by Berkshire's major corporations and the highly skilled talent sourced from nearby universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Reading and University College London, some estimates of the county's average engineering salary at over £40,000 per year. Such salaries do, however, come with a level of expectation, and engineering staff in Berkshire can expect to work long hours in this line of work.
