An Aerospace Recruiter You Can Rely On

We’ve seen and heard it before numerous times, from clients all over the UK in related industries; the candidates they’re sent are either unqualified, unsuitable, or unmotivated for the roles they are assigned. The agency you’ve contacted isn’t able to carry out the basic checks, or they fall short in providing candidates that not only suit the role but show enthusiasm and talent that make you sit up and take notice. This is not what we do. The simple fact is that recruiting for the aerospace industry and finding the perfect candidate that adds real value to your workforce is not something that most can achieve. It takes a wide network of contacts, a strong understanding of the industry and job roles, and a deeper level of understanding of what employers are truly looking for. This is what we do. This is how we, at Cartisian, succeed.

How to Approach Aerospace Recruitment?

Our modus operandi involves working closely with clients to understand completely what makes the ideal candidate for each role, in terms of technical qualifications and relevant experience, and in terms of personality, motivation and soft skills. We need to know precisely what you need from a candidate, and how they will operate within your team. This first step will give us the necessary tools with which to begin our intensive process of sourcing the right aerospace and defence candidates for your business.

As we all know, defence and aerospace recruitment has particular challenges that are unique to the sector; since stringent background and security checks are typically required for any position, and experience and highly technical knowledge is vital for many roles. Within this framework, and through the network we’ve built up over our history, we will work tirelessly to source, and vet, candidates from across the UK and internationally, making use of every available channel and platform to find and attract talent.

An Aerospace Recruiter in the Heart of the British Manufacturing Industry

Our location in the West Midlands puts us in an excellent location at the very heart of British aerospace manufacturing and engineering. Our clients are able to visit us easily, and we can accommodate on-site interviews as required. Of course, we are happy to visit clients anywhere in the UK.

Our recruitment process has been developed over many years, and we are proud of our approach. Clarity and transparency are important to us, and we work hand in hand with our clients at all times. Candidates are always carefully selected against a detailed brief, and are vetted and interviewed, where appropriate, before being introduced to the client. Only the most suitable candidates are put forward for client review, where they match the brief perfectly or where they can add real value to the client organisation.

We work with clients on both a retained assignment basis and as a contingency arrangement, and we can provide recruitment services for permanent, contract and interim roles, as well as executive search.
