Engineering and Technical

Matching Engineering and Technical talent with career opportunities in the South West. 

Engineering and Technical – the jewel in the South West Crown. 

The South West region hosts a number of significant clusters of industrial and R&D activity. It is one of the UK regions with the greatest share in innovation businesses and is one of the UK’s top performing regions in terms of patents, especially covering the Engineering and Technical sectors.

As a result of the region’s fantastic strength in the sector, the South West is a really attractive option for technical talent, allowing CMD to reach outside of the local talent pool, easily attracting fresh candidates from outside of the South West to join our growing economy.

Whether it’s hands-on technical candidates performing specific tangible tasks or advanced engineering candidates, we’ve got the pick of the local talent and we use the region’s reputation for innovation to reach out and attract the best of the rest from the UK.

One of the critical KPIs for our consultants is regular communication with their candidate network, even when we don't have an active role to share, resulting in a candidate network that trusts us implicitly.

We proactively identify, engage and qualify emerging talent in the area so our database is constantly evolving.

“Government investment in UK wide STEM programmes for emerging talent, along with the focus on attracting more females into the profession from school age means there’s never been a more exciting and diverse candidate pool to choose from.”

The South West has the pick of these candidates. Its reputation for innovation and development goes before it. However, there are other regions in the UK boasting really exciting developments. Good Engineering and Technical candidates have the pick of the roles. Let CMD help you attract those candidates into the South West, supporting our great region’s continued growth and innovation.
