Automation Market Survey

Fellow Automation Industry Professionals,

The last decade has seen major changes in the Automation industry with significant peaks and slumps in the market. General indications are that the industry is experiencing growth again over the past 18 months.

Survey Objective: To benchmark the state of the Automation industry in Ireland we have created this survey. It plans to be the most comprehensive insight into the views of employers, employees and suppliers.

Our Motivation: The survey is to help us all in the automation community of practice, employers, employees, and contractors to understand the current automation marketplace for engineers. It will help us all to understand career expectations, salary expectations, locations, technical capabilities, and the career paths into automation and migration into more senior positions.

For Engineers: It will help them gauge where they are with their career expectations, salary benchmarking against their peers, business growth forecasts, the most popular locations for engineers and much more.

For Employers: It will help them understand what motivates the automation engineering community, remuneration benchmarks, how to attract the best engineers into the best positions. It will also assess the sentiment for growth across various industry sectors, etc.

We respect your time. The survey should take no more than 6 minutes and is simple to complete with no open ended written responses required.

Survey Success will be dependent on getting a wide spectrum of engineers and employers across all industry sectors, so please feel free to pass onto your colleagues and employees.

Your privacy is important to us. We guarantee that no personal or systems information will be recorded as part of this survey.

A Token of our appreciation: You have the option to enter into a draw for an Apple iPad mini on completion of the survey. To enter the draw, simply forward us the entry form at the end of the survey and we will send you on the complimentary report when published and enter you into the draw. We respect corporate giving policies so we will also make a donation to Unicef in lieu of those who do not wish to enter the draw.

Again we appreciate your time and look forward to provide you with the comprehensive results.
