Digital Manufacturing is at the top of all international agendas and experts in this field are highly sought after. According to The Manufacturer “engineering salaries are rising above the UK average thanks to digital manufacturing. New data has shown that those who can help businesses capitalise on technological advances – such as digital technologies and automation – are seeing wages rise well above the national average.

Engineering salaries are being driven up by the increasing demand for candidates with digital skills to capitalise on emerging technologies, as well as the nationwide shortage of engineering talent more broadly. That is according to new data from the 2019 Reed Engineering Salary Guides, which analysed more than 10 million jobs posted since 2015.
