Setting out engineers act as the main technical adviser on a construction site for subcontractors and operatives.
Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.
Usually, a BSc Honours Degree in an engineering field in England; the equivalent L6 NVQ / HNC in Wales, or the Scottish equivalent, will most likely be required. Some positions will require an engineering Masters Degree as well, or chartered status with a relevant engineering body.
However, experience is often very important too, so entrants with other qualifications might be considered.
