Take part in The Engineer's 2023 salary survey

Make your voice heard in the largest industry-wide salary survey of its kind and enter a prize draw for £250 of retail vouchers.


Last year, in our sixth annual engineering salary survey, we asked UK engineers from across industry to tell us how they felt about their jobs and how much they get paid.

With almost 800 engineers from across 11 sectors of UK industry taking part, the survey provided an illuminating picture of life in engineering, from levels of job satisfaction and how pay and benefits in some sectors differ to others, to the number of women in the profession and how their earnings compare to those of their male colleagues.


Key findings last year included a modest average year on year salary increase of 2.3 per cent and a resurgent appetite for change. You can read the full report of last year's survey here.

Following a year of unprecedented challenges It will be interesting to see what - if anything -  has changed and what has remained the same, when we sit down to analyse the results of the 2023 survey, which you can take part in here.

As with last year, not only will your feedback make a valuable contribution to our ongoing coverage of this important issue, but your answers will also be fed into our online salary benchmarking tool, which you will be able to use to see how your salary compares with that of your peers.

The full results of the 2023 Salary Survey, which we are running in partnership with technical and engineering recruitment specialist CBSbutler (a division of Staffing 360 Solutions Inc) will be published in The Engineer at the beginning of March 2023.
