Electrical engineers working in aerospace earn an average salary of £25,500 compared to £16,500 for those working in the electronics and communications sector, according to an Engineering Employers’ Federation pay survey.
Aerospace employees are paid almost ten per cent above the average wages for an engineer.
The survey also revealed that only forty five per cent of electrical engineers receive life assurance, which is well below average. The seventy five per cent who are paid overtime is one of the highest figures for engineers.
The average salary for an electrical engineer is £22,167.
Average wages varied from £16,500 in the north west to £25,500 in the west of the UK.
The report is based on responses from over 800 UK companies.
