Types of engineering jobs

‘Engineering’ is such a broad term; it can cover anything from labourer jobs to specialised aerospace engineering jobs. So, in this crowd, how do you know which job is right for you? Let’s go over your options.

If you’re more into hands-on, outdoors work, then you’ll be looking at jobs in construction. Put your hard hat on, as we offer lots of on-site opportunities. There’s a large variation in roles; you could grab a builder, road-work, or site supervisor job. You’ll often have to have completed some kind of apprenticeship for the more specialised roles, though, so make sure you’ve got all the right qualifications. Labour roles are excellent engineering jobs for students, as you can get some experience in the field while you’re studying.
