What are the ingredients for choosing a particular career? Contributing to society? Fulfilment? Salary? Work-life balance? Travel opportunities? Or perhaps it’s being recognised as a trusted individual?

According to the 2018 Ipsos MORI Veracity Index published on 19 November 2018, engineers are the fourth most trusted professionals, after nurses, doctors and teachers. 87% of the British public said they would trust engineers to tell the truth, with trust particularly high among those with degree-level qualifications (91%).
