Mapping the UK's Engineering Workforce

The Engineering Council's report, 'Mapping the UK's Engineering Workforce', was published in September 2020.

The ‘Mapping the UK’s engineering workforce’ report provides data on the UK’s engineering workforce, in particular the specific engineering roles and where engineers work:

This reflects the reality that engineers are employed and self-employed across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Their work ranges from aerospace to agricultural, food packaging to pharmaceuticals, in organisations from micro-SMEs to large, multi-national companies.

This report provides a benchmark of the engineering workforce, based on the most recent available Office for National Statistics data (from the 2017 Labour Force Survey), before the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
