IE:UK is the title of a new body that has been established to promote UK engineering expertise internationally. It’s a high-powered group, whose members include the heads of government trade bodies; engineering firms which take on major civil engineering jobs; and infrastructure project partners.

On bigger construction sites, you’ll find a wide array of skilled trades, labourers, technical specialists and often several subcontracted firms which are responsible for various aspects of the build. However, you’ll nearly always also find a general foreman (although this might well be a woman). General foreman jobs can be challenging but are always involving and interesting.

Your potential employer will want evidence that you have the right technological knowledge, engineering skills and personality to ensure that you will be the right fit for the company. But just how do you put across the right image and demonstrate your knowledge during an interview process that can be stressful to say the very least?
