Manufacturing Recruitment

Manufacturing Sector Overview

UK manufacturers continue to look forward with confidence, on the back of on-going investment in machinery, automation, IT and training and development. It is an evolving sector, shaped by global markets, cohesive supply chains and the acceleration of disruptive technology.

  • Key drivers for investment are improving productivity, innovation and product development.
  • A major challenge for the sector is bridging skills gaps and ensuring a continuous pathway into industry from secondary and higher education.
  • Technological revolutions such as 3D printing could massively shake up the sector.
  • We exist in an age of advanced experimentation with operating models, which is a response to on-going globalisation and the need for “anytime, anywhere” services.
  • The coming years will bring a period of dramatic transformation due to advanced technology, big data and analytics.

Manufacturing Sector Details

The sector offers a wealth of opportunities, particularly for management level professionals who are conversant with technology and open to embracing new ways of working.

  • We recruit a wide range of roles in manufacturing, from procurement and purchasing to logistics and supply chain.
  • Resourcing models are changing in the sector, with increasing uptake of interim and contract management roles to manage cyclical work patterns or oversee transformational projects.
  • Leaders in manufacturing are encouraged to embrace new ways of working, explore emerging operational models and focus on IT developments that will shape the future of the industry.
