    Engineering recruitment can be highly competitive, so businesses need onboarding processes to match. Our recruiters have some tips for ensuring your engineering firm is up to date

    Engineering is an extremely competitive discipline and most engineering recruitment candidates are
    overwhelmed with applicants for each new role they offer. Selecting the ideal person for the job
    might seem straight forward with such a big pool from which to select them, but employers
    shouldn’t treat it as an easy task. The talent hired can make or break a project and businesses
    looking for continual growth need to know what gives them a competitive edge in landing the best
    candidates.


    Don’t Put Too Much Emphasis on Schooling

    When undertaking engineering recruitment, many companies scan CV’s and place those with red
    brick university education at the top of the pile, and although there is no denying these schools
    churn out top talent, there are other great indicators of a good engineer. In fact, some of the most
    well-known engineers attended less prestigious institutions, while some have no higher education at
    all! In interviews, ensure to ask about experience and problem-solving skills, over degree
    classification to hone in on the traits that are important to the role.

     

    Pair Them Up

    Engineers have a bit of a bad rap for being elusive lone wolves when in actual fact most projects rely
    heavily on teamwork and collaboration between design, structural and civil engineers. Identifying
    candidates who work well together is a key part of the engineering recruitment process so business
    should try to pair them up to work together on a task. Have one observe and one carry out a task,
    with them swapping throughout, to identify candidates who are open to criticism and eager to
    collaborate.


    Work with a Recruiter

    Partnering with an engineering recruitment business like Precision People can save businesses time
    and money when hiring staff. With the help of our experts and their up to date knowledge of hiring
    trends, we can ensure that we work together to find the ideal candidate for your unique needs.

    Improving a business’s technical recruitment process is key to ensuring the hire of top-quality candidates, see how this can be achieved.

    For a long time, technical recruitment clients measured their employment success based solely on the number of candidates that turned into hires, but as the old saying goes, quantity doesn’t always mean quality. However, over the past 5 years, technical recruitment has become more sophisticated and clients have more insights that help them to understand their candidate pool, measure engagement at each stage of the hiring process and most importantly, retain top talent – so how is this achieved?

    Define Your Ideals

    The first way to improve your technical recruitment process is to identify and understand your ideal candidate. Consider your most recent hires in the sector and assess what made you hire them – was it their grasp of several programming languages? Or the type of projects they worked on in their previous role? How quickly did they learn once on the job? By identifying the key ‘pros’ of past hires, businesses can form a profile, which allows their recruiters to better vet any future candidates and their qualifications.

    Identify Areas that Don’t Indicate Success

    A commonly made mistake by firms looking for technical recruitment is never identifying areas of the job description that don’t indicate future success in practice. At one time, employers often thought that GCSE’s and A-Level grades earmarked candidates skill levels, but these days employers are keener on work experience and real-world applications. Sit down with managers and identify what your job listing says compared with actual hires, which will aid recruiters in the development of the job description, ensuring only candidates with the necessary criteria are processed.

    Forecast for the Future

    Businesses should always be prepared to recruit technical staff, even if there are currently no available openings. It’s good practice to assess the years gone by and identify recruiting trends and test whether or not they are likely to repeat themselves. This allows the business to be prepared for recruitment spike’s and won’t leave them flat-footed when the time comes to grow the team.

    Have you got your growth strategy in place for 2020? Or are you waiting to see how Brexit develops, as a number of our clients have said they are.

    Whatever your decision, one way to keep your business fulfilling orders and keeping yrou customers happy is the use of independent technical contractors, can provide many benefits and it’s not just that they bring the talent you need for a project without becoming a permanent employee.

    Many employers have different expectations of an independent contractor’s role and what they bring to a business.

    Technical contractors are a useful solution for employers, looking to successfully navigate periods of change, especially in these uncertain times faced by businesses.

    You may have a big project coming up for which you’ll require an extra pair of hands, but not be able to commit hiring a permanent employee. Understanding this, and then revising your job specifications around your requirements and expectations is key.

    Here are five benefits to bringing an independent professional on-board:

    Considerable Financial Benefits 

    Independent contractors are a temporary solution and do not require an annual salary, as well as the other associated costs of taking on a permanent employee. You will also not need to invest in paid learning and development for them, as they will only benefit your business for a limited period.

    Shorter Onboarding Process

    Traditionally, the onboarding process for contract employees is a lot quicker than for permanent employees. When hiring long-term employees, you have to consider personality and cultural fit whereas for independent contractors, you only need to hire for technical skills. 

    Flexibility

    One of the most widely acknowledged benefits of hiring independent contractors is that they are flexible. Independent contractors allow you to respond to business and market needs, as they arise. They are also often used to working for different personalities, in different locations, for varied of periods of time. 

    Immediate Impact

    As they are only joining for a limited period of time, they should know that they need to make an immediate impact. You will also not have to spend time familiarizing them with the work environment, introducing them to every staff member and training them!

    Highly Skilled, Niche Experience

    Independent contractors have a highly specialised skillset and are accustomed to working on niche projects. Utilising these skills on your team can really help to drive your business forward.
