News: Elevation finding success as manufacturing sector recovers


Rotherham-based recruitment firm Elevation, has seen a 40% increase in placed candidates across manufacturing compared to the same period last year.

Part of the Horbury Group, Elevation was founded in 2010 and doubled its South Grove House office space in 2012 to cater for its rapidly expanding team.

The specialist manufacturing and engineering division has continue to grow, and as well as the upsurge in placed candidates, it has also helped 72% of manufacturing experts to secure appointments into senior roles at SMEs, with 28% choosing larger organisations with a Yorkshire base.

Elevation's manufacturing and engineering team published its findings to coincide with the recent Global Manufacturing Festival. It also found that opportunity, diversity and prospects are the top priority for experienced manufacturing candidates searching for a new job. The opportunities within the role itself tops the wish list, followed closely by the reputation of the business and product, and the salary on offer.

John Bohan, director of Elevation Recruitment who heads up the now seven-strong team in the engineering and manufacturing division, said: "There is no doubt that the manufacturing industry has really started to recover, with companies increasingly looking to recruit for newly created roles, and existing job roles opening up as a result. Businesses are growing, and so demand for quality candidates is growing too.

"Now, experienced manufacturing experts are in a position to consider every aspect of a job – and as we have found opportunities within a role top the list of priorities."

Bohan went on to explain that with some of the industry's leading institutions based in Yorkshire and utilising smaller, local businesses to deliver at various stages of the supply chain, it is the ideal time for SMEs to recruit.

He said: "The popularity of this year's Global Manufacturing Festival – with speakers including Airbus and Jaguar Land Rover - is indicative of the opportunity for SMEs right here in Yorkshire to compete on an international scale; and with so many quality candidates looking to develop their careers it is the ideal time for businesses to show what they have to offer in order to recruit an experienced team that will help drive growth."
