The future situation of the occupational group on the labour market

The employment prospects for this occupational group in the 2009-2013 period will be as follows:

Poor

Very good

The employment prospects for this occupational group in 2009-2013 are average and deteriorate slightly over the long term. The reason is the recession in manufacturing and the fact that manufacturers are beginning to move to markets with cheaper labour, although these skilled occupations have much better prospects as compared with workers in assembly plants. Employees with a qualification combining electrical and mechanical engineering in particular should experience no difficulties finding employment over the long term. Enhancing skills in this manner is a guarantee of good long-term employment prospects in this occupational group.
