Engineers are like gold dust

We’re now starting the apprentice route. Massive shortage of engineers around here

Thats the way we have always went - takes longer but you end up with Guys who work the way you want .

All the Engineers with us started as apprentices - including me and they are all still here.

Not a quick fix solution for Paul though - and I understand his situation

No shortage of engineers but it’s a shortage of good quality engineers. Engineers who claim to be the best with all the skills on paper but can’t tell a Gent from and advanced lol
*Hits call point*... "we are on test aren't we?"... Whoops

Not been on here for a while, this an interesting thread. I found by utilising my skills in my own capacity was a benefit to me personally. Previously working for larger outfits in London on projects, pushed to my limit.. squeezing every penny out of me. Having young children, working 70 hours a week stressed me out! (don't get me wrong I still graft!) I still work in London and feel the demand for skilled labour, be-it install, comm etc. Aforementioned, apprentices the way to go, cannot rely on these 30 year old bunny hoppers wanting an extra 3k a year.... all because they've sat a manufacturing course in Leicester.... All agencies want is that training with their engineers.. not especially experienced and you're paying through the nose for the privilege.... Seems to be alike in many trade industries.
