The UK is currently the 11th largest manufacturing nation in the world, with around 2.5 million people employed in a diverse range of production roles. Manufacturing accounts for 54% of UK exports and, in its broadest sense, covers an enormous range of areas, from small, specialist workshops to large-scale car plants and shipyards.
Manufacturing offers a staggering array of jobs - mechanical, electrical and electronic engineers, production operators, CNC machinists, production assemblers, QC specialists, production managers and directors amongst literally hundreds of others - so there are many positions available for jobseekers at all levels of experience and expertise.
Apprenticeships – with government schemes north and south of the border - are a common way to move into manufacturing as many roles call for extensive on-the-job training.
The scope for an enthusiastic recruiter is enormous, whether working within a multi-national agency or a small, local business with a fantastic network of manufacturing clients and candidates.
