Manufacturing and engineering jobs on the rise

Job opportunities in the engineering and manufacturing sector across Yorkshire has increased by almost a third over the second quarter of this year according to Elevation Recruitment Group.

The firm, which operates across eight specialist sectors, found that its engineering and manufacturing division has placed 32% more candidates between April and June than the previous quarter, with senior level or management roles accounting for more than half of that total.

The business has also reported particular growth within the building products and aerospace industries.

Senior director and head of Elevation Recruitment Group’s engineering and manufacturing division, John Bohan, said: “The north is synonymous with manufacturing, and the last quarter demonstrates Yorkshire’s appetite to continue to drive success within the sector.

“The fact that so many of the roles we are filling on behalf of our clients are at a senior level is also a reflection of the industry’s commitment to maintaining its reputation for excellence whilst driving efficiencies from within.

“Over 50% of these roles have been in production and operations management, for example, demonstrating demand for leadership within growing businesses.”

Working with clients and candidates across the North of England, Elevation Recruitment Group’s E&M division offers specialist solutions in a wide array of industries, including: aerospace, automotive, energy, nuclear, oil and gas, metals and renewables.

The recruitment partner of choice for the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMECHE) and the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).

John continued: “There has been particular growth within the building products and aerospace industries.

“Meanwhile, the oil and gas sector – which has seen a low recruitment drive in recent years – is showing signs of recovery.”
