Manufacturing recruitment experts

Production supervisor and manager jobs continue to be highly sought after. Overseeing production on the floor, increasing productivity and improving processes make the role of production supervisor key to the smooth running of manufacturing operations. Together with operations manager roles, these positions require strong technical knowledge as well as excellent interpersonal and leadership skills.

Jobs for manufacturing and process engineers are also on the rise as organisations require people to create more productive and efficient business operations, so experience of lean manufacturing processes is often a pre-requisite for manufacturing engineering jobs. There has also been a steady number of product design engineer and electronic technician jobs being created across the UK.  

The increasing sophistication of manufacturing supply chains has also created an additional need for project manager, project coordinator and project administrator jobs across the UK. Companies are looking for commercially savvy people with experience of quality control (ISO 9001) and all round solid communication and teamworking skills.
