Automation Recruitment Sector

The industrial automation sector has seen huge growth locally and internationally, however the UK still has a long way to go to catch up with many European and International countries. In fact, the UK is ranked 25 globally for the number of Industrial Robots per 100,000 employees. In light of the recent pandemic there has been a shift in people’s appetite to bring more manufacturing back to the UK and whilst this does sound positive, it is the consumer who really makes this decision. The only way to really make a difference is for manufacturers being able to produce products at a competitive price. We believe the way this can only be achieved is through industrial automation and a robust UK supply chain. The retail sector has been evolving for a number of years, adapting to new shopping habits such as online ordering and the demand for ultra-fast deliveries. It is incredible to think how far the industry has come from the days of mail order waiting up to 30 days for a delivery and now with the latest intralogistics technology, order to pick can be achieved in less than an hour, with some deliveries fulfilled the same day.

The team at Cartisian Technical Recruitment are fortunate to work very closely with these companies, seeing first-hand the innovation being launched to the market and the impact this technology has on the industry. Recruitment is key, in order for companies to keep innovating and expanding. It is not just engineers who drive these businesses forward, they are equally reliant on sales, supply chain, purchasing and finance. Cartisian Technical Recruitment supports clients with a wide range of candidates including engineers, technical sales engineers, buyers, supply chain teams and finance candidates.

For companies that specialise in Bespoke Automation there is a core requirement of technical skills to enable the design and development of technology for its customers. Whether you are looking for mechanical design engineers, mechanical fitters, control panel wirers or controls engineers, Cartisian Technical Recruitment has the knowledge and candidates to provide this resource quickly when needed. The intralogistics sector is undergoing an unstoppable surge and it is not surprising with fierce competition for fast, reliable time to pick sequencing, 24-hour operations and a redeployed workforce. We support this industry, both at the point of design and installation of equipment as well and the client site maintenance teams. We have placed sales engineers, solution design engineers, controls engineers and service and commissioning engineers as well as site managers and site multi-skilled maintenance engineers at the client’s sites.

Many skills are transferable across all these technologies and the CNC Machinery sector is no different. Some CNC machinery companies based in the UK are sales and service, others offer modification and upgrades and some, full scale manufacturing operations. If you are looking for permanent or short-term support, then we can help fill that critical position with the confidence we understand your business and your requirement. The terms CNC Machinery applies to any Computer Numerical Controlled equipment, whether metal working, wood working or any other material, the engineering principles have many similarities.

The robotics and collaborative robotics market is also growing and there are many multi-national companies offering an array of robotic solutions to meet every need, whether heavy industrial material handling, robot welding, pick and place, machine tending, vision inspection, assembly and AIVs. There are many different types of industrial robots such as multi-axis robots, SCARA (selective compliance assembly robotic arm), cartesian, delta and collaborative. They all have their place and use, typically dependant on load weight, speed and the dexterity typically determined by the number of joints (axis) and configuration. The skills required to program these robots vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. I think its fair to say that collaborative robots have the most user-friendly interface and offer hand manipulation to set the work path. As companies start to invest in more robotics, the challenge is on companies upskilling engineers and apprentices on the programming and maintenance of these machines and a growing need for outside support from recruitment agencies such as Cartisian Technical Recruitment. We have built a big database of robotic engineers, able work on contract or seeking permanent employment. Many have experience with Kuka, ABB, Fanuc, Staubli, Motoman, Yaskawa, Toshiba, Doosan Robots and Epson robots to name but a few.

As ambassadors for the automation sector, we at Cartisian Technical Recruitment invite you to talk to one of our consultants today if you are looking to add to your permanent of contract team of engineers, commercial or supply chain teams.
