Report

Electrical and Mechanical Services Industry - 2017 Manpower Survey Report Image
  • Electrical and Mechanical Services
  • 2017 Manpower Survey Report

18% Decline of Vacancies in E&M Engineering Sector

The Electrical and Mechanical (E&M) Engineering sector accounted for 87% of the manpower in the E&M Services Industry. The number of employees in this sector continued to increase, recording a growth of 7.6% compared with that of two years ago. On the other hand, the number of vacancies recorded its first drop (-18%) since 2009. This could be attributed to the joint effort by the industry and training providers in attracting new bloods, i.e. trainees, over the past few years.

The Challenge of Retirement Wave and Lack of New Bloods for Succession

Apart from the aircraft maintenance sector experienced hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact of the pandemic to the Electrical and Mechanical Services Industry was relatively mild.  The industry is facing the challenge of retirement wave and lack of new bloods for succession. To this end, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department has stepped up their recruitment of technician trainees in recent year, and the trainees were arranged with a 30-month workplace attachment in the private sectors.  Adoption of new construction technologies such as Building Information Modelling (BIM), Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA), and Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) is the worldwide trend; in-service practitioners and engineering discipline-related students are highly recommended to equip with relevant knowledge and skills to improve their competitiveness.
