Industrial, Technical & Driving Division

If your working life revolves around industry: factories, manufacturing teams, drivers and transport departments, you probably don’t work nine-to-five.

 

So, neither do we. Even if you need recruitment support at 3 a.m., we make sure you get it.

 

Our MD has been known to visit a construction site at 6 a.m. as her own initiative, to ensure a team of contractors were all present and correct, much to the surprise and delight of the site manager.

 

And our head of Industrial and his team will always answer an emergency call in the middle of the night, because that’s who they are.

 

What makes a great production employee?

The kind of person who is perfect for a production job, is one who likes to, and has the ability to replicate the same work every day. It might be the kind of task others would find boring or repetitive but it needs a thinking human to do it. The ideal candidate has a creative mind, and uses it to recognise improvements that can be made, and have the ability to document these clearly, and to pass that information on to senior colleagues. Not all improvements can be made, or should be made, and sometimes for good reason, but that should never stop the keenness to improve.

 

Honesty is an important facet, as mistakes happen, and the ability to note, communicate, and identify failure modes and how to stop them happening are immensely valuable.

 

If you’re an employer, it’s worth noting that a company that fires someone for making a mistake, will never learn anything. A company that encourages honesty and teamwork will always succeed.

 

Teamwork is also an incredibly important facet. Individuals will never get as much done as a team that learns together.

 

If you’re looking for a job in production, we’ll help you find one that suits you personally and plays to your strengths.

 

What makes a really valuable Engineer?

The best engineers will spend their whole career seeking knowledge, and better ways of doing things. The really excellent ones we know are humble and quick to work with others who know more.

 

Too many engineers leave university with a belief that they have learnt everything and cannot learn from others in the workplace. A valuable engineer is a like a builder; an assembler of knowledge. They are able to listen to others’ experience, consult with text book science and merge them into a better solution.

 

A valuable engineer is always, always learning.
