CURRENT FEATURES OF AEM SECTOR 60% of all manufacturing 60% of all exports 18% of GDP 58,000 employed
Transformation Taking Place Over 90% companies do not make final product – supply chain dependant Companies will have to reduce manufacturing times to 40% of today and costs to 60% Require significant investment in innovation, productivity, and skills
Employment Structure Will Transform Will lose at least further 10,000 jobs by 2010 Aging workforce. 1 in 4 of present workforce will leave sector by 2010 Demographic fall at younger end of population by 20% by 2010 Currently losing more people than jobs – will increase from present rate as transformation demands increase
Changes on Jobs Front Number of trained engineers falling HE/professional employed only 7% - need to raise to 20% Companies spend on average under 1% of wage bill on off-the-job training – world class regions spend 4%. 70% companies are both recruiting and shedding jobs BUT 60% of those recruiting cannot find people. Around 75% of companies now accept that they must increase investment in training BUT less that 30% are doing enough. Potential to lose manufacturing capacity because of lack of trained engineers
