Engineering Recruitment Specialists

There aren’t many jobs out there that combine practical and theoretical practices in the same way as a career in engineering does. What’s more, a job in engineering can give the opportunity to make tangible contributions to the world around you.

Whether you’re just starting out in your career as a graduate engineer, an ex-forces engineer, have years of experience as a contractor, or you’re looking to get back into the industry, there are plenty of great reasons to apply for the latest engineering jobs with us.

After all, there aren’t many jobs out there that allow you to work as part of an incredibly skilled team, putting your talents to good use everyday, and making a good living too.

Ex-Forces Engineering Roles

We’ve been placing highly-trained ex-forces engineers into roles befitting of their skill set for more than ten years.

Armed Forces engineers possess some of the most sought after skills in the industry, and therefore it’s our promise that we will find you the right role to suit your highly attuned abilities.

The skills, experience and training make ex-force engineers ideal for high-quality roles in food manufacturing and the FMCG sectors. As a specialist recruiter in this arena, we’re aware of just how important it is to help ex-forces engineers transition to civilian careers, and aid them in their job hunt in any way we can too.

There is a huge shortage of skilled engineers in Britain, and with more than 15,000 personnel leaving the forces every year (many with experience in electrical, mechanical and other engineering disciplines) it’s important they are encouraged to utilise their skills in the best civilian job roles.

Our philosophy means that we don’t simply hand over a list of jobs for you to apply for and walk away, our support can extend as far as you need it to, from helping you to create and refine your CV to identifying training opportunities and coaching you through the interview stages.

How to Return to an Engineering Career

Not only do we help ex-forces and graduate engineers to join the industry for the first time, but we also work with many candidates that are looking to return to an engineering career.

There are numerous reasons why an engineering professional may take some time away from an engineering career. They could be personal, such as parental leave, or a sabbatical, or could be the result of a career change or redundancy.

It’s now quite common, particularly post COVID-19, to see professionals take a less than traditional approach to their working life, which means there should be no reason that you couldn’t bring your considerable skills back to the engineering sector.

Employers are now more perceptive in their employment process and are now actively looking for return engineers to begin to plug some of the skill gaps that have appeared – some have even started return schemes to encourage experienced engineers to come back.

Here are our top tips for returning to work as an engineer:

Emphasise New Skills

If you’ve been away to work in a new industry, then it’s important to emphasise what new skills you may have learnt which can help you become a better engineer and further benefit businesses.

Perhaps you went on to manage a team, or worked more closely with customers in a different sector, anything that complements your existing experience and skills will make you a valuable asset.

Think About Your Experience

Before applying for any roles, it’s important to consider what it is you’d like to return to. Maybe, you’d like to return to a similar engineering role as before, or you’d like to take your new skills and take on a new challenge in an unfamiliar environment.

If you’re able to form a clear picture of what you’d like to do, it will make things much easier for you when job hunting.

Look for Support

A lot of businesses are now launching pilot schemes to get engineers back into the sector after some time away.

Many of these are business specific, but some have partnered with larger organisations with a view to hiring experienced STEM professionals.

We specialise in recruiting for engineering roles, so if you’d like some guidance or advice on how to break into the industry once again, get in touch with us today.

How Can We Help You?

As an engineering recruitment specialist, we have a wide range of engineering positions with some of the biggest companies and brands, whether you’re just beginning your career, returning to engineering or looking for a new challenge.

We regularly recruit for contract, permanent and interim engineering roles, so no matter which avenue you choose, we’re sure to have a position to fit your skill set.

On average we recruit six candidates each week for our clients, many of whom remain with that employer for up to four years, which gives you a great opportunity to learn and grow with that business. We’re also able to help contract engineers search for roles in their specialist engineering sector too.
If you want to learn more about our current roles at The Sterling Choice in the engineering sector, or you’d like to find out how to sign up with us to find contract work, speak with a member of our team today.
