There are three main strands to our company strategy: sharpen our focus, move up the value chain and think global.
Sharpen our focus
Our operating brands work across the engineering and technology sectors. Having a clear focus on particular sectors, markets and skill sets is what differentiates us from our competitors. Within each brand, our consultants are specialists in their markets and can consult and advise with ultimate confidence. It’s this knowledge and expertise that makes them valuable to both clients and candidates in understanding their challenges.
Move up the value chain
While one-off contingent business is necessary and profitable, it is also less predictable than long-term recruitment, that’s why around 75% of our business comes from clients opting for framework or preferred supplier agreements.
Our clients draw on our experience for sourcing niche, hard-to-find, skilled professional candidates and placing key individuals higher up the value chain who are strategically important to their business.
Moving up the value chain is all about building longer, more valued relationships so we are a trusted long-term partner to new and existing clients.
Our acquisition of Networkers International in 2015 gave the Group access to an established international footprint. We have since built on and expanded on this to support client requirements.
Many of our clients are global businesses looking for specialist help on a broader scale. With our international network and experience in placing candidates in over 100 countries, we are able to support them wherever they are.
From a candidate point of view, we can help provide assistance to a growing number of professionals who are seeking job opportunities abroad. In recent research conducted by our specialist technology and engineering recruitment brands Networkers and Matchtech, they found that 54% of technology professionals and 49% of engineering professionals would consider moving abroad at some point in their career (Voice of the Workforce 2017). Through our specialist brands, we are perfectly set up to support them and offer global engineering and technology vacancies.
