Manufacturing recruitment agencies: How can they help?

Ever since the dawn of time manufacturing recruitment agencies have offered companies in the engineering sector peace of mind. The first part of that intro may be exaggerated but the second bit couldn’t be more accurate. Taking on a new start who isn’t the right fit has a domino effect of negative impacts on your business.

Firstly, you’ll be spending time and money on advertising. Followed by some of your staff having to move away from important tasks to filter applications, make phone calls and arrange interviews. Imagine all of this going to waste and keep in mind this is just the start of a downhill spiral of resources going to waste.

When the “wrong fit” finally starts working for your company they may not perform, they could be great for the job but not fit on a cultural level and walk within weeks. Discovering this too late will send you back to square one and could cost a pretty penny along the way! Especially if mistakes are made resulting in damage to stock, machinery and tools.
