Producing talent in Manufacturing & Automation

Manufacturing & Automation Recruitment

At Stott and May we are helping the MES sector not only build next generation products but also take them to market with the supply of sales and consultancy talent. We have gained an excellent reputation in the market for completing complex assignments, from individual placements through to building out entire MES teams. We are passionate Manufacturing recruiters and strive to understand the unique culture, competitive environment and strategic direction of each of our clients. As a result, we have become a go to advisor for some of largest employers within the Manufacturing Sector. Our search process is exhaustive and that coupled with our known network of specialist talent ensures that no relevant candidates ever fall through the cracks.

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

  • You need a recruitment partner that understands the MES landscape.
  • You’re spending too much time sourcing niche skillsets independently.
  • You have open head count to expand your team and need to ‘use it or lose it’.
  • You require a partner that can not only understand but sell your brand to candidates.
  • You need to understand salary benchmarks in an extremely competitive market.
  • You need access to candidates with industry specific experience in markets such as industrial automation, pharmaceuticals, biotech etc.
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.
