Having worked with some of the UK’s and Europe’s leading FMCG and food manufacturing businesses, we think we’ve picked up a thing or two when it comes to hiring engineers to keep operations moving. In the UK the engineering sector accounts for 19% of employment and contributing almost £500 billion to the UK GDP. The sector is in constant demand for skilled workers that can quickly grasp the technical roles at hand. In the USA, the market forecast for the engineering sector is projecting the sector to increase annually, for the next 5 years.
Since 2013 we have been solely recruiting for the food manufacturing and FMCG industries – and that includes recruiting engineers. Having this area of recruitment specialism means that we have gained a deep understanding of the sector, and skills, experience, attributes and behaviours that bring value to the role. When it comes to these positions, the roles we recruit for include contract engineers, senior engineers, multi skilled engineers, engineering supervisors, engineering planners and engineer team leaders and team managers.
