Engineering Design Salary Guide 2022

Much Has Happened In Recent Months

The Pandemic

The World Health Organisation has recently announced that the end to the pandemic is in sight – and I think we can all agree that we can’t wait to see the back of it!  It’s been a rollercoaster ride but one of the few positives to come out of this period is how it has impacted people’s ability to work from home and the added flexibility to people’s working arrangements that are now on offer (check-out our jobs board and discover what is on offer!).

Interest Rates

Interest rates are on the rise and there has been much speculation as to how this will impact the engineering design and construction sector.  I am fortunate enough to speak to industry leaders on a daily basis and the general consensus is that although some projects might slow down, there is too much appetite among developers and too much already committed to have a significant impact on pipelines of work; certainly for the short and mid-term.

Unemployment Figures

Unemployment numbers are also at an all-time low and although there was a recent 0.1% increase in the most recent figures, the number of full-time roles created across the country increased by 33,500.

We are fortunate that our industry reflects this demand for skilled workers.  Our clients across the industry are still recruiting heavily, opportunities are abundant and companies are now doing more than ever to attract and retain staff.  There is also enough demand and long-term pipelines of work that job security should not be a factor to make you hesitant to find a new role.

Job Opportunities

It will therefore come as no surprise that here at Building Talent Recruitment, we have multiple opportunities available; all with long-term clients of ours that offer great benefits, awesome working environments and opportunities to keep progressing your career; no matter what level you are at.

Although our jobs board has a number of key roles advertised, there are many more that you won’t see.  Therefore, if you are just starting to think about what else could be out there, or are undergoing your search for a new role, get in touch with me today to see how I can add value to your job search.

I have a passion for building genuine networks with people and adding value to them; so am always here to give advice or be a sounding board even if you are not looking to move companies right now.  I have recruited into this space for nearly 10 years in Australia and am across the market in terms of opportunities as well also market trends, challenges and potential solutions.

Why not check-out our Jobs Board to browse a selection of opportunities that are out there that might be of interest.

Stay safe and well!
