Engineering Jobs In The Aerospace Sector In Southampton

Monday, February 13, 2023

With UK wages growing faster than expected, if your pay packet is stagnant, now’s a great time to take the next step in your career.  

Thanks to a tight labour market, wages are expected to rise further in 2023, particularly in the private sector.  One reason for higher starting salaries in a skills shortage across many industries. 

The aerospace industry is one of the most important sectors in the UK and one where skills are always in-demand. 

If you’re an engineer ready for your next role, Gregory Martin has a number of opportunities at a successful international company in Southampton.

A leading supplier of major civil and military aircraft structures and systems, they offer excellent career progression, with continual training and mentoring available.
