Producing talent in Manufacturing and Automation

Manufacturing & Automation Recruitment

We are helping clients across EMEA find specialist and hard to reach talent enabling them to execute MES and PLM implementations both on-time and on-budget. We understand the end-to-end functional and technical requirements of a project and can provide access to expertise across the design, implementation, upgrade, deployment and development phases. Whether you are looking for a junior CAA Developer through to a PLM Project Director we can dramatically reduce your time to hire whilst ensuring you on-board resources at the right market rate.

Here's why clients typically engage with our Manufacturing & Automation practice:

  • You need a recruitment partner that understands the PLM/MES landscape.
  • You’re spending too much time sourcing niche skillsets independently.
  • You have a new project in a new territory and lack knowledge of the local talent pool.
  • You are not only looking for a specialist skillset but a native language speaker.
  • You require a partner that can not only understand but sell your brand to candidates.
  • You need to ensure that resources are on-boarded at the right market rate to protect project budgets.
Collaborating with Stott & May has been a successful and positive experience for us. They are great communicators and have proven to be very responsive to our needs – even on last minute requests. I know I can count on receiving an impressive shortlist of thoroughly vetted and quality candidates. Stott & May are an invaluable partner, and I look forward to continuing our work together.
