Engineers who work remotely ‘earn nearly 50% more’ claim
2 Oct 2019
Remote working may not only become increasingly common for engineers but potentially more lucrative, claim the publishers of a new survey.
Recruiter CV-Library analysed more than 185,000 vacancies from 2019 for various jobs posted on its site, and concluded that, for engineers, salary rises from an average of £36,129 to £53,167 for remote-based roles.
The table profession ranked fifth overall of the careers with the greatest additional earning potential for remote work with electronics, construction and IT following but some distance behind.
A spokesman for the company said the number of remote working jobs on its books had more than doubled in the last four years.
Among engineers surveyed, nearly one in three said flexible working was the first factor they looked for in a job advert, suggested the company.
