Manufacturing enterprises remain the largest economic contributor of the engineering-based industries, but in a recent survey 62% of manufacturing employers said there was a lack of candidates with appropriate qualifications.

With the emergence of Industry 4.0, technology and interconnectivity is transforming the world of manufacturing and the connected factory is becoming more widespread. Developments in genetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing and biotechnology are all building on and amplifying one another. As the manufacturing industry advances the engineers of the future will need to be creative, adaptable and ready to take on new skills.

We understand every manufacturer is unique with its own culture, environment, priorities and retailers, which is why we offer a bespoke recruitment service to find the right talent for your team.

Our specialisms include manufacturing roles within the automotive, aerospace, space and defence industries, placing candidates with experience of lean manufacturing, Six Sigma, 5S, Kaizen, Kanban, continuous improvement, root cause analysis, value stream mapping, OEE and TPM.
