  • Electronic Engineering
  • Embedded Software
  • Hardware/Firmware
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Project/Programme Management
  • MFG Planning / Project Engineering
  • Sales
  • QA & Continuing Improvement
  • NPI & Product Engineering
  • Supply Chain & Procurement


The R&D sector plays an essential part of the engineering process and is a sector that continues to attract substantial investment across the UK.

Technology has simultaneously revolutionised the way we think, work and play, and the need for innovation is at the heart of R&D.

As a function, it has created a strong demand for talent with an innovative skillset. It is from this unique talent pool where fresh inventive ideas originate and further propel the sector to reach new heights.

The UK has been at the forefront of some of the most influential technological improvements in modern history. It is a country that has a supportive government, flexible labor market and a strong willingness to invest in new infrastructure. To support the growth of this market, our team monitors our talent network, keeping in touch so when a suitable role arises, we know who to call. Our business is based on successful, long-term relationships and when it comes to finding high-calibre candidates, our dynamic global network puts us in the driving seat.
