    Perhaps you are about to replace a semi-recent hire, or a project requires a team of engineers and you want to ensure your machine tools recruitment strategy is going to produce the results you need. This is where reviewing your hiring strategy and recruiting professional consultants can help you in both achieving this short-term goal and with your long term aims.

    If you have previously been too proud to review your hiring strategy and instead deflected towards the candidates you hired or generalised about the younger generations work ethic, it might be time to put pride aside. It is now more commonplace than ever before to consult a recruitment expert who can help you devise a more robust hiring strategy. Whether your sector falls in electrical or machine tools recruitment, it is a nuanced process with a lot of details that need to be paid attention to, or else one misstep could dampen the quality of the hiring talent before you in the hard-backed chair.

    Ask yourself questions such as: how detailed is my job description? How effective are my interview questions and overall technique? And how aware am I of the market? If you aren’t asking these questions, it is almost guaranteed you could streamline your hiring process and cut the time it takes to get a high-quality employee joining your team.

    The best practice would be to work with a company who understands the requirements of machine tools recruitment so they can help you hone your hiring strategy.

    If you would like help with almost any aspect of the recruitment process to make sure you are doing the best job you can do in the shortest amount of time, get in touch with our team of top recruitment experts today.

    If you need to hire a new employee for a maintenance position but have had poor luck with staff retention or not finding the right fit previously, it could be time to bring interview training into your maintenance recruitment strategy. The right strategy is make or break when it comes to recruiting new hires as you need to ensure you are adopting a different approach to the methods that have proofed less than 100% effective previously.

    Naturally, there will be several parts to the maintenance recruitment process that work already and you feel comfortable with. For example, you could excel at assessing CVs against your checklist, but if your interview questions are too generic and not specific to the skills you want to recruit, you could fall short of getting the right hire at one of the most crucial stages of the process. This is why working with a reputable recruitment agency to learn first-rate interview training will help your business grow and give you maintenance recruitment skills you can use thereafter.

    The types of areas covered by interview training include CV scoring methods, HR do’s and don’ts, shortlisting, engagement, arranging face to face or phone interviews and candidate packs containing employee case studies. Perhaps you have been stung by dishonest references previously but only realised in retrospect the discrepancy in the reference – make sure this never happens again!

    If you do decide to opt for interview training, you will receive an individually tailored training plan tailored to the goals of your business. Additional support and feedback on your progress is also available from our seasoned experts in maintenance recruitment.

    If you would like more help with maintenance recruitment, please get in touch with our team of top recruitment professionals today.

    When it comes to lift and escalator recruitment, you need to hone your recruitment style to the specific sector of engineering you are recruiting for as not all engineers are created equal. Asides from check their qualifications and asking the receptionist their impression of the candidate, there are other tips and tricks you can use to ensure your new lift and/or escalator engineer is going to perform well.

    A Conscientious Nature

    A lift engineer carries out a very important job when it comes to responding to emergency calls. Lifts are often featured highly on surveys of which kinds of phobias most people have because the lift engineer is the only person who knows what happens behind the proverbial scenes. That’s why good social skills are a top-rated skill for any prospective lift engineer to have. Pay attention to how well they understand the human impact of the work they do, how conscientious and self-aware they appear and finally, their ability to display empathy.

    A Methodical Approach

    While all engineers are likely to share a pool of soft skills such as being a ‘natural problem-solver’ and having great attention to detail, a lift engineer works within a very specific environment. Assess their disposition, how logically they tell a story without interruption and examine their job history to see if they display a genuine interest in wanting to continue within this field. Often, our instincts can tell us a lot about a person and whether they see a long-term future in their chosen career and looking for this trait helps to hone that instinct.

    If you want additional support regarding interview tips or you are pressed for time, working with a lift and engineer recruitment agency can help you to get the right people in front of you.

    If you would like to work with specialists in order to ensure you’re using your ability to examine a person’s qualities effectively regarding lift and engineer recruitment, get in touch with our team of recruitment team today.

    Electrical engineering recruitment is complex and critical. The right choice must be made, corresponding qualifications must be proven and crucially, the role must be filled. While you will have lots of notes in mental and physical form to refer to, here are some soft and hard skills to bear in mind as you aim to make your hiring decision.

     

    Critical Thinking

    The candidates need to demonstrate the ability to think critically. This will become evident in their previous work anecdotes as well as by the way they answer other questions. Are they speaking in absolute terms with little nuance in their descriptions? Are they effectively describing the problems they spotted and the possible solutions they came up with? The ability to be precise and analytical is important.

     

    Communication

    This introduces the next skill nicely. It is of little value to be able to spot how to solve issues if you can’t effectively communicate your ideas. A strong communicator has the potential to excel in their career and demonstrates intelligence.

     

    Lateral Thinking

    Often thought of in juxtaposition to critical thinking skills, the ability to be creative is actually an integral part of being an electrical engineer. To be able to envision a future not yet created is to engineer that future. That’s why lateral and logical thinking must be hand in hand.

     

    There are many more attributes to look for when conducting the electrical engineering recruitment process, some of which we have covered previously. However, our services are vast and specialist, ranging from helping you with a hiring plan to providing interview training and beyond. Get in touch with our team of top recruitment experts today.
