Engineering Skills Shortage Predicted by Siemens Human Resources Director

Mike Jones, Human Resources Director for the Energy Sector at Siemens, said that “There is a need to develop an estimated 50,000 skilled engineers, project managers, construction supervisors and craft workers nationally over the next 10 years. A further 70,000 UK jobs will also be created in the offshore wind sector by 2020. But if the UK is going to meet the requirements of the new energy age and low carbon agenda, the private sector needs to find a more joined up approach of working with the government and educational establishments. We’re investing ahead of the curve and have done a number of things to address the big issues which are coming down the track.”
