Interestingly, this industry does not suffer from the inconsistency of revenue that other sectors do. As such, there are huge opportunities within the industry for career growth. If you have a background of manufacturing, quality control, science, engineering or maintenance then this industry might be for you!

Abstract Reasoning Decision Making Organisation Strategic Thinking Motivating others Teamwork Assertiveness Problem Solving Thoroughness Persistence Accommodation Confidence
