Hiring Insights: Maintenance Engineers in the West Midlands

Hannah Kirk

Many employers are finding that recruitment campaigns are costing more compared to last year. There are several factors to this, including many job boards increasing their advertising fees.

On top of this, the hunt for engineers is only growing. With most engineers set to retire within the next 5 years, now is the time to look into how you can attract engineers that are joining the industry.

We’ve decided to cut through the noise and research into what your competitors are offering engineers in the West Midlands. Over the past couple of months, we’ve analysed hundreds of adverts (192 to be precise) on Indeed, CV-Library, Reed and our roles to see what manufacturers in the West Midlands are offering engineers.

All so that you can leverage this information to attract more engineers to your roles. 

The plan for this series is to go through what:

  • Maintenance engineer salaries in the west midlands (including bonus/shift allowances being offered);
  • Shift (including overtime and any extra hours);
  • Holiday and Pension contribution;
  • The training and progression opportunities that are being offered; and
  • What benefits your competitors are offering engineers at the moment.
