Recruiment Specialists

Defining the future

The evolution of the Internet of Things means that a host of technologies are becoming more interconnected, from city infrastructures to transport, consumer products, homes and wearable technology. Each will increasingly impact how we work, buy goods and services, travel, power our vehicles and spend our time.

Many of the changes in smart technology and interconnectivity are being led by the automotive industry, with a host of related industries arising from its vast investment into research and development.

Innovation in autonomous vehicles is driving a surge in the science of data, analytics, continuous improvement and cyber security, because it is the capture, measurement and storage of data that allows engineers to refine the reliability of this technology. Meanwhile, new environmental agreements from influential markets like China have driven further investment into alternative propulsion for private and commercial transport.

Finally, cutting-edge consultancies can use their business interests in motorsport (especially Formula E) and automotive manufacture as a real-world testing ground for innovation, developing the smart technology that will power the cities, transport and consumer goods of the future.

Who we work with

Many of our longstanding clients include cutting-edge OEMs, consultancies and start-ups in this diverse field. We also work with government-funded initiatives, often under Non-Disclosure agreements for international assignments. The challenges of hiring in this sector are many, and we are at the leading-edge of talent identification for a raft of connected and burgeoning technologies.

In these markets we have to be skilled at identifying potential as many of our candidates are hired to work in fields that are untested, breaking new ground as they grow. Pace is also crucial, as we are often deployed to locate the brightest talent for confidential projects at short notice. Like many of our clients we are problem-solving as we go, working at the very leading edge of talent in new skills, helping to create the future.

  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Hybrid (HEV/PHEV), and Electric Vehicle (EV)
  • Connected Car
  • Autonomous Transportation
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Smart Building and Smart City

It is my pleasure to recommend Paul as the go to recruiter for both employers and anyone looking to find new employment. Finding that perfect job or candidate can seem to be an insurmountable task, but Paul made the whole process feel like a breeze. After receiving my CV and a phone conversation with me, Paul efficiently matched my skill set and aspirations with the ideal job. Subsequently he dealt with the recruitment process with complete professionalism and continuously gave relevant updates and feedback as we progressed. Paul's work ethic is outstanding as I can honestly say that I felt he had both my and the prospective employer’s best interest at heart. The feedback, advice and guidance he gave in his friendly manner was always helpful, accurate and realistic. Paul is an all-round great guy to work with and I unreservedly recommend him for any employment matters.

Prototype Build Technician, Electric Vehicle

We have now used Paul’s services during the recruitment for two recent positions. In both cases he has listened to the requirements defined for the role and identified candidates that closely matched the criteria defined in each case. It is refreshing to work with a consultant that carries out accurate screening to match candidates to our needs; this saves us time and ensures we get the right person for the position.

We have been extremely happy with the support & services provided by Paul, a candidate that recently joined us via Paul is testament to this.

Engineering Manager, Future Technology

I have been recruited by Gemma for my current job, and throughout the whole process she supported me heavily. I can only recommend her as a recruiter- she went above and beyond to accommodate me.

Physicist

Paul helped to place me in my current role at Williams and it went smoother than I had expected. My previous experiences with recruiters was one filled with pressure (as if you were a business deal they couldn't wait to close), lack of follow ups and lack of transparency. But with Paul I had a completely refreshing experience and I always felt he was on my side the whole time. He is very professional, honest and well experienced.

Control Systems Engineer

Excellent recruitment agent (Gemma). Took the time to get to know me and my requirements, and went on to find me a great job. 5 stars.
