Engineering is a critical part of the UK economy, and the growing convergence between conventional engineering and IT skill sets is creating exciting developments across a range of sectors. There is now considerable demand for technical engineering skills outside of industries traditionally deemed to be engineering.
It has been suggested that 124,000 engineers and technicians with core engineering skills are required per year to cope with demand, and in a recent survey by the IET, 46% of engineering employers reported recruitment difficulties.
Our long-standing experience and technical understanding sets us apart. We have a team of ex-engineers, with practical experience in the field, working on each account. This enables us to find quality candidates quicker, with less time and money spent.

How long should it take to fill a tech vacancy?
In the UK, it takes 65 days on average to fill a tech vacancy, from advertising to having an offer accepted. Your role is vacant even longer when you factor in notice periods; usually a month (maybe three months for highly technical roles). Is 65 days reasonable?
