CMD Recruitment specialism: Engineering & Technical

STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) are growing at an exponential rate. If your business is in one of these increasingly important and growing areas, then you understand the importance of hiring the most talented engineering and technical employees.

CMD Recruitment also understands, and we're here to help you find the best possible candidates to fill your vacancies.

Engineering candidates

Engineering candidates will generally come to you with a university degree and at least three A-levels, including maths or physics. Other candidates will have taken the apprenticeship route; students can apply for a degree-level apprenticeship after completing sixth-form. You should expect one of these two options at a minimum for all engineering applicants. 

As you are aware, there are many fields of engineering. Regardless of which are of engineering your business deals in, there are certain traits that you should look for in engineering candidates. Good engineers should obviously have strong skills and knowledge in maths and science, but there are other less quantifiable characteristics that you should look for. Engineers should be creative and inquisitive, with the ability to lead while also listening. CMD Recruitment can help you to find those candidates who strike the perfect balance of practical and innovative.

Technical candidates

Technical jobs require what are known as 'hard skills', which are skills that an individual uses to perform specific, tangible tasks. Such skills set technical candidates apart in the job market. If your company has vacancies for technical positions, then CMD Recruitment can help you to find applicants with the skills and experience that are most suited to your needs and goals.

The ideal technical candidates have a unique set of characteristics. they should possess intellectual curiosity, excellent problem-solving skills, the ability to work well alone as well as in a team setting, and the ability to handle unexpected situations in a calm and orderly manner. The range of technical jobs is as wide as the range of traits that are most desirable in technical candidates, and the team at CMD can help to ensure that you find the individuals who will best fill your vacancies and help your business flourish.
