Aerospace and Defence Recruitment

At Cartisian, we have a superb reputation for sourcing the very best aerospace and aviation engineers from across the UK and throughout Europe, for permanent, contract or interim positions. Our clients range from the smallest of specialist SMEs to the largest blue-chip corporates. Within that client base, we have become the recruitment partner of choice, because of our meticulous approach to talent sourcing and our unrivalled experience in technical recruitment across the aerospace industry.

Our approach 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. Only when we fully understand the bigger picture can we truly excel in recruiting the highest-calibre candidates, and our results speak for themselves.

Aerospace and defence recruitment obviously has some particular challenges that are unique to the sector, since stringent background and security checks are typically required for any position. Within that framework, we work tirelessly to source candidates from across the UK and internationally, making use of every available channel and platform to find and attract talent.

Our location in the West Midlands puts us in an excellent location at the very heart of British 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.
