CIBSE Journal publishes Guide to Careers in Building Services

CIBSE Journal, the official magazine of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has published a Careers Guide supplement in this month's issue. Hoping to encourage and help those looking for a way into or trying to progress in the sector, the Guide offers advice from top professionals in the building services industry.

The CIBSE/Hays Salary survey suggests 57% of firms asked are looking to recruit more staff. CIBSE Journal Editor, Alex Smith introduces the Guide by saying "Could building engineering become the degree of choice for the next generation of undergraduates?"

Readers of the Guide will find it is an important resource for tips on how to grow their career, explanations of different roles within the sector and tales of success such as an interview with Sophia Negus, senior mechanical engineer, who is working on a project for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Also featured in the Guide is Lee Tabis, who has recently won Graduate of the Year at the CIBSE ASHRAE Young Engineer Awards. He discusses the benefits of having such a diverse job where "there's something new to learn everyday."

Nurturing young engineers and sharing knowledge to improve building performance for the future is important to CIBSE. The CIBSE Journal's Career Guide is an initiative that supports this.
