The sector has seen some challenging times during the economic downturn. However, it appears to be moving forward with exciting new models and markets opening  as the infrastructure in emerging countries is providing opportunities for more utilisation of the car.  As a truly global market place, companies are finding it more difficult to source the talent that they require from local sources; in some cases having to search further afield into other areas of Europe, India or Japan for the necessary engineering skills.

A well developed and proven recruitment process has provided us with an excellent reputation for our quality of service; consistently delivering recruitment solutions in line with the needs of our clients and candidates, alike.

Over the years we have worked in partnership with a diverse range of clients; from OEM’s, first & second tier suppliers and the aftermarket industry. This has given us a broad understanding of the fast-paced and ever-changing automotive market.

Our team has successfully managed national and international recruitment campaigns for major automotive clients, such as Jaguar, Land Rover, Bentley, Treves, Stadco, Caparo, Hitachi, Unipart, Wegmann Automotive, DAF Trucks, Mahindra Mahindra, JCB, Cummins, Bosal, Carlisle Brakes, Sumitomo Europe, Thyssenkrupp, TRW and Magna.
