My background in recruitment

I have worked in Engineering Recruitment for 8 years, with 7 of those specifically recruiting for Maintenance & Service Engineers. 5 years ago I started the Maintenance & Service Team from scratch, growing the team from just two of us to a team now 8 strong.

Myself, and the team, have a wealth of experience recruiting on one off vacancies all the way up to full recruitment projects within a variety of engineering settings both site and field based, with myself personally focusing on the Recruitment of Field Service Engineers across the UK.

I can help you with

Everything starts with a full technical understanding of what a business does, manufacturing processes including how the machinery works from an electrical and mechanical perspective, and what an Engineer would be expected to do from a hands on perspective to maintain that piece of equipment.

This process is then reversed for candidates, with all candidates going through a full hour long technical assessment covering machinery they have worked on, what breakdowns they have dealt with, electrical and mechanical tasks, and most importantly ‘How’ they would perform technical tasks.

Ultimately, it’s taking the time to understand roles and candidates technically that allows us to fill 4 out of every 5 roles we work on, getting the right candidate for the right role.


The best part of my job

I have always had a huge passion for Engineering and machines in general so the fact I get to indulge this passion on a day to day basis, talking to Engineers in about the machinery they work with and clients about their equipment and process is fantastic.

What I do when I'm not in the office

Racing (Karting and Online). B Road Blasts in my Lotus Elise S2. Eating anything spicy!
