With 27% of registered UK enterprises being in the engineering sector and more than 1.7 million people working within the industry, the UK technical and engineering industry contributed 23% of the UK annual turnover in 2017.

It’s anticipated that 79,000 new engineering-related roles will be arising every year, and that more than 124,000 engineers and technicians with core engineering skills will be required per year moving forward.

We’ll find you the most suitably skilled technical and engineering workers, and make sure that they have all the necessary industry accreditations – meaning you can get them started immediately.
