Maintenance Engineering Jobs

Working in the maintenance industry

Maintenance engineering professionals are generally responsible for the continuous running of machinery and equipment. Using technology such as computerised systems they will monitor maintenance of equipment and organise any required repairs. Maintenance Engineers are essential in the overall efficiency, development and continued progressions of manufacturing and process industries.

Maintenance engineers will work alongside other engineering professionals to improve production facilities, improve efficiency reducing costs and develop strategies to improve reliability, safety and overall production processes.

Salaries for entry level maintenance engineers will range from anything between £20,000 to 24,000. With further experience, average salaries will increase to within the region of £27,000 – 42,000. Within the energy industry it is possible to earn exceptionally higher salaries, particularly within the oil and gas and power and nuclear sectors. Energy Jobline has seen average salaries for maintenance engineers to exceed £55,000 with higher earnings of £65,000 being fairly common for senior level maintenance engineers.

Generally, a degree is not essential to qualify as a maintenance engineer but many candidates do take this path and obtain a BEng in relevant area such as electrical/electronic engineering, manufacturing engineering, mechanical engineering or production engineering. Certain employers and businesses will accept college qualifications as an alternative to a degree such as BTECH certificates or a City & Guilds accredited certificate in engineering.

It is also possible to train as a maintenance engineer via an apprenticeship scheme. Further qualifications and training courses will be required whilst on-the job. An entry level position will provide an individual with valuable experience to implement and develop maintenance strategies.

Most maintenance engineers will continue to work towards gaining incorporated (IEng) or chartered (CEng) engineer status, which is awarded by the Engineering Council. Achieving this status will provide you higher earning potential and greater career prospects. In order to work towards this qualification you will need to become a member of a professional institution such as the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) or the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
