Syntax Tackles Skills Shortages With Service Expansion

Technical recruitment specialists Syntax Consultancy has launched a head hunting service to tackle the mounting skills shortages faced by engineering and manufacturing businesses throughout the UK.

Syntax, which is the Midlands’ leading independent recruitment consultancy for the engineering sector with offices in Derby and more recently London, have expanded their service in response to increasing difficulty by clients to source senior personnel with the right skills and experience.

Engineering and Technical Recruitment Director Charlotte Coe explained: “Skills shortages in engineering and manufacturing have been building up for years now – the culmination of historical cut backs in in-house training by companies and the lack of recognition and promotion throughout the education system of engineering as an exciting and rewarding career.

“This has been exacerbated in more recent years with the economic downturn which has forced companies to pull back even further on training and developing their staff as well as a reluctance amongst established people in this sector to move jobs in such an uncertain climate.

“The upshot is that, as manufacturing and engineering companies are looking to expand and grow out of recession, they are now not able to source the right people for the right, more senior positions in their businesses.

“This is being experienced by companies right across the board in the engineering and manufacturing sector not just in the UK but throughout the world – particularly in Australia.

“The response from clients for this bespoke service has already been extremely positive, particularly amongst those businesses who have specific requirements for an appointment that is crucial to the future of their business and who recognise that going down the & lsquo;search and select’ option for recruitment will yield the best results.

“Using our expertise, industry knowledge and executive level network of contacts, we are able to offer a guaranteed shortlist of candidates to the client’s exact specification with an agreed timetable.

“The fact that businesses are prepared to invest in finding these sought after people is a positive indication that manufacturing and engineering is buoyant with fantastic prospects for the right people.

“We are therefore confident that this specialised service will help our clients stay ahead of the competition to remain competitive and be in the position to take full advantage of the economic upturn as it slowly emerges worldwide.”
