A UK recruitment firm has launched a new division dedicated to helping fledgling hi-tech engineering sector to recruit sought-after expertise. Aerospace engineering recruiters Consilium Group has unveiled the specialist team after witnessing a surge in investment within the industry which has been fuelled by a renewed confidence in British manufacturing and Whitehall-led funding.

Steve Doyle, director of Consilium Group, said: “There are a huge number of small yet highly innovative businesses in the UK’s engineering industries who are developing a range of breakthrough products and technology. But with a widening skills gap many are finding it tough to compete in fierce recruitment battles with larger companies, let alone secure the skill-sets that are required to develop the technologies of tomorrow. 

One of the division’s latest clients is Warwickshire based high-tech engineering SME, Aeristech Ltd. Consilium, who are also the official recruitment partner to the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), has placed engineering professionals into the Kenilworth-based company.
