Helping you find a career in the Automotive engineering industry

The automotive sector in the UK contributed over £15 billion to the economy in 2017. Many of the larger automotive manufacturers have most of their production located in the Midlands and North of England, although there are also businesses in the South, too. Engineering and design plays a critical role in the automotive sector, designing new vehicles and modifying existing vehicles and systems.

Many employers within the automotive are large, private sector organisations. There are also a wide-ranging group of independent automotive design consultancies, manufacturers of specific components (e.g. electrical component or tyre manufacturers), laboratory testing organisations and oil/fuel manufacturing businesses. There are also apprenticeship opportunities with smaller private businesses in automotive maintenance, repair and specialist manufacturers.

An apprenticeship is a recognised route into an engineer position in the automotive sector. Once they build their experience within the sector, automotive engineers can specialise in one of three areas: Research & Development (R&D), design or production. Engineers will spend their time in a mixture of laboratory, office and factory sites.

An engineer specialised in R&D might spend much of their time working to identify properties of different materials, while a design engineer will likely focus on designing and developing prototypes for new vehicles or components. A production engineer will work closely with the manufacturing facilities to ensure that the mechanical systems used in production are correct for the product being produced and working correctly.


Skills & interests required for a career in Automotive engineering
The automotive industry – particularly within motorsports – can be a competitive industry given the popularity of certain brands of car. It is important that applicants to engineering apprenticeships within the sector have a genuine passion for vehicles and for engineering design and production. It will also be important for an aspiring engineer to keep up with technological and market developments during their career.

Automotive engineers will need to be both good at maths and also able to follow complicated technical plans. Strong problem-solving skills are also very useful for engineers.

Automotive engineering apprenticeships & other career progress routes for school leavers
Most employers offer two separate apprenticeship programme, typically a Higher/Advanced Apprenticeship scheme for those entering at Level 2 (i.e. holding GCSE level qualifications) and a Degree Apprenticeship scheme for those entering at Level 3 (i.e. holding A-level or equivalent qualifications).

These apprenticeship programmes usually combine time spent studying technical aspects of automotive engineering in college with on-the-job work placements in different areas of the organisation. As you progress through the course of your apprenticeship you will be able to specialise within a specific discipline.

Once you complete your apprenticeship programme there will be a variety of different career paths open to you, including vehicle/engine design, automotive repair or production Engineering.

Many larger employers will offer qualified engineers the opportunity to achieve Incorporated Engineer or Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Becoming a chartered engineer can be crucial to progressing your career within automotive engineering, allowing you to reach senior roles within engineering departments.
Tips for getting into the field
Arrange a meeting with your careers advisor to discuss your interest in working within the automotive sector and to get advice on identifying potential employers and potential work experience/shadowing opportunities which can help you stand out from other applicants.

Explore the National Apprenticeship Service website for more information about Apprenticeships and the support you can receive from government.

Most larger employers in the automotive engineering will recruit apprentices annually through their websites – make sure that you take note of the application opening and closing dates. Smaller organisations may recruit throughout the year and will post opportunities with your local FE College.
What do Automotive engineering professionals get paid?
Those beginning an automotive apprenticeships will typically earn between £10,500 and £15,000, with some employers offering slightly higher starting salaries (£16,000 to £18,000).

Many employers will offer regular opportunities to increase your salary depending on your performance at work and academically during the course of your apprenticeship.
Once you complete your apprenticeship programme, engineering salaries are, on average between £30,000 and £45,000 per annum.

If you go on to achieve CEng or IEng status there will be opportunities for further salary increases to between £45,000 and £65,000 per annum.
What qualifications do I need for a career in Automotive engineering?
For applicants to Higher/Advanced Apprenticeships in Automotive Engineering, you will typically require:
3-5 GCSEs (or equivalent) at Level 4-9/ Grade A*- C including Maths

For applicants to Degree Apprenticeships in automotive engineering, you will typically require:
2 A-Levels at Grade C and above or a minimum of a pass in a BTEC Level 3 (or equivalent) qualification
