Our specialist Engineering & Defence Team is highly-experienced and successful at recruiting professionals from graduates to senior management, across a range of disciplines including:
Curating Specialist Engineering Talent
The Engineering staffing sector is an extremely competitive market with increasing skills gaps. We have long been a provider to large and small companies operating within engineering and high technology manufacturing sectors, recruiting permanent, contract, consultancy and interim staff at all levels for engineering, technology, industrial, manufacturing and scientific jobs across the UK, in both commercial engineering and defence sectors.
We have become an engineering specialist by taking an ‘inch-wide mile-deep’ approach, meaning that our consultants immerse themselves in their niche engineering skillsets, giving our clients the quickest access to the best and scarcest talent around.
We source highly-qualified and motivated individuals for roles in all market sectors
- C&I/Control Systems
- Detail Design/CAD
- Marine/Naval engineering
- Structural Engineering/Naval Architecture
- Product Safety
- Project and Programme Management and In-service Support
- Information Assurance/Security
Contingent contract and permanent professionals
We'll support you in finding the niche skills that you need to complete your projects, whether contract or a strategic permanent hire.
We also work with you to build your own specialist talent pool that will fulfill your staffing needs now and in the future.

Our compliance and onboarding teams are on hand to guide and advise both clients and candidates. We arrange drug, alcohol and medical tests and ensure that all contractor payment methods/companies comply with UK legislation (including taxation).
In addition, all contractors sign legally-binding agreements which ensure that commercially sensitive information and IP rights are protected.
We have a long-standing supplier relationship with a major global Defence and Engineering business and deliver volume recruitment on a contingent PSL for them. We have a dedicated client services team who manage the inventory and contractor relationships and we fill on average 400 roles per year.
