Engineering and Manufacturing Recruitment

Engineering and manufacturing has long been a crucial part of the UK economy, and it will undoubtedly remain so. Sub-contract engineering spans many different industries, including automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, bio-medical and nuclear, and firms need to have a broad outlook and strong market position to take advantage of the opportunities that this presents. The nuclear and bio-medical sectors in particular are growing at a phenomenal pace, giving rise to genuine optimism within engineering and manufacturing companies.

Engineering impacts every aspect of our lives, in ways that we often take for granted. From infrastructure projects such as road and rail links, to utilities such as gas, oil, electricity and water, we rely on engineering across all areas of our daily lives, and we rarely stop to think about how successful British engineering firms have been in recent times.

Careers within the engineering sector are well-respected, and professional certification for engineers, such as through the Engineering Council, is helping to build the UK’s reputation throughout the rest of the world. In schools and colleges too, engineering is being given the attention it truly deserves, through diverse STEM initiatives that aim to inspire the next generation of engineers and technicians. Recruitment for engineering and manufacturing roles certainly looks very positive.

We work with manufacturers involved in CNC machining, fabrication, pressings, laser cutting, roll forming, extrusion, injection moulding, castings, forgings and surface finishing. Whilst some skills are transferable across these disciplines, we always take time to ensure we completely understand the requirements for each and every role we source for, so that we can present only the most suitable candidates, no matter what the role is.

At Cartisian, we know that technical skills and professional qualifications are vital, but we also understand that these must be matched with softer skills, such as leadership ability, strong communication skills and a can-do attitude. When we take on a recruitment project, we look in detail at the teams that candidates will potentially be joining, and at the client’s organisation overall, to ensure that we can source and qualify only those candidates that are a genuinely good fit. Our commitment to finding the right candidates for every position we handle is demonstrated in the results we achieve, with satisfied clients and candidates time after time.

Our West Midlands location places us at the very heart of British engineering and manufacturing, which gives us access to the very best talent from the UK. Clients find it easy to visit us at our Solihull base, and we are more than happy to visit client sites throughout the UK.
