The study findings highlight that 62% of respondents cite engineering as the discipline most affected by talent shortages.

In addition, 74% of non-hiring professionals anticipate further pay rises in 2019.

Airswift and Energy Jobline surveyed more than 17,000 energy professionals and hiring managers in 162 countries across five industry sub-sectors: oil and gas, renewables, power, nuclear and petrochemicals.
