MANUFACTURING JOBS FAQs
The manufacturing industry continues to be beset by supply chain challenges, so we can expect an increased use of digital supply networks and data analytics as a response to the disruption. The increasing importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) is also leading manufacturers to up their focus on delivering against net zero or carbon neutral goals, and voluntarily complying within a complex network of reporting regulations and disclosure frameworks.
There is an ongoing skills gap in manufacturing. As a result, demand for experienced manufacturing professionals is extremely high. To attract and retain talent, manufacturers are pairing strategies such as reskilling with a new articulation of their employer brand. This is being done with the aim of shrinking the industry’s public perception gap of the manufacturing industry and making manufacturing jobs a more desirable entry point.
We hire for senior positions across the manufacturing industry, including engineering managers, general managers and project managers. We also recruit for a range of skilled engineering positions, including planning engineers and design engineers.
