Industry Innovation: German Engineering Germination

Germany, the largest country in the European Union, has shown clear signs of growth in research and innovation. The diversity of German engineering makes them a world leader in innovation, from physics and chemistry to cars and consumer products.

It is home to Nobel Prizes in the sciences and their scientific researches consistently rank the best in the world over. In a report by the Harvard Business Review, national success in innovation and growth isn’t really won by the United States or China, it is actually Germany which had won sustainability and diversity in many facets of engineering. The country has proven itself effective in adapting their many inventions to their industry and in spreading them throughout many businesses.

Constructive Innovation


German engineering is constantly training its workforce to enable them with all the most radical innovations that they are continuously adapting.

These innovations geared toward their empowerment and in improving their productivity. Unlike other disruptive changes that reduce the need for manpower, German engineering continuously creates and sustains good jobs across many spectrums. Sustenance of employment growth ensures real income expansion among many engineering firms in the country.

Mechanical engineering and plant engineering, being its most innovative industries, is its largest employer for engineers. Engineering has always been Germany’s hottest job fields. Qualified engineers are benefitted with solid salaries and wholistic perks.

Engineering Recruitment

Challenges facing German engineering are a national priority. Their government even launched an initiative called, “Industrie 4.0” to assist companies in digitization and in reducing their dependence on US technology.  This initiative suggests the need for a multitude of engineers to fully implement these changes.

The Federation of German Engineers foresees the need for the recruitment of about 85,200 engineers. The labor gap is expected to increase 3x over the next decade. By 2026, it was even expected that tens of thousands of engineering jobs will be considered  ‘hard-to-fill’.

Germany has over 1.7 million engineers but over 37% of them are already at least 50 years old. This accounts to more than 600,000 engineers that will retire in the next decade.

Big German engineering companies already started looking for professionals abroad. Everyone in the industry is increasingly aware of the lack of German engineers so they have opened to sponsoring Visa for applicants outside EU. The selection process has been really focused on technical skills rather than the nationality of each applicant.

International applicants are guaranteed with an easier path to fill in open engineering positions as the government has taken measures to support recruitment campaign outside Germany and has also been supporting programs that target engineers from high-unemployment countries like the Philippines.

Rustling & Rushing Russian Engineering

Russian engineering and its commitment to science and technology makes the industry at the forefront of the world. The country’s contribution to technological advancement has always been important.

Russian engineering has been trying to modernize and industrialize for 300 years now. Engineering and production of electricity have been a priority for the communists.  In all the fields of the engineering sector, Russia’s nuclear power engineering is the most progressive in the world.

A significant segment of the Russian engineering sector is in the manufacturing industry, automotive, oil refining, petroleum engineering, and electronics. It has depended on most of its wealth in resource extraction. Being a petro industry, its  economy mostly relies on the rise and fall of prices of oil and natural gas.

Russia is home to one of the greatest engineering accomplishments of all time. Trans-Siberian Railway is the longest railway in the world at 5,772 miles. There is no doubt that this structure has been the most spectacular engineering achievements ever made.

 

Engineering Recruitment

Moscow is an attractive city for many expatriates as a multitude of international corporations  are entering the Russian engineering market. Most multi-national companies require English speakers or foreign nationals with specialized skills, which are abundant in the Philippines.

For those who are looking to gain experience in the Russian engineering sector, finding a job in Moscow and St. Petersburg are two viable choices. Job for expats tends to be in highly skilled jobs or at the senior management level.

Rensol, being the leading recruitment agency for Russian employers, is tested to be a good channel for candidates seeking for Russian engineering jobs. Big corporate companies in Russia trust Rensol for delivering highly qualified workers in a faster process.

By 2020, it was projected by the Federal Migration Service that an estimated 2/5th of its workforce will be foreigners that will settle there for a longer time.

Russia offers diverse engineering employment opportunities, and, in most cases, expats are the best-paid professionals. In an economic survey by HSBC, expatriates in Russia are 13th in the highest grossing income earners.

Russia’s growing economy provides lucrative niches and opportunities for engineering professionals to work from. Besides the large-scale infrastructure development which is underway, major Russian engineering companies are also planning to erect six large automotive plants,   to rebuild their aircraft industry, and to establish its optoelectronics industry.
