Established in 2015 in the North East of England, we enable Manufacturing & Engineering organisations to grow, prosper and manage their workforce, with a range of talent solutions and specialist consultancy services.

Our process

From our first conversation, we make it clear to prospective partners and candidates that we can take you to a better place. We aren’t here to take over your process and keep you out of the loop. We strive to be an extension of your business. Our commitment to individuals and organisations is unwavering: this is not about filling positions but promoting positivity, success and progression.


We will always insist on talking to our applicants and clients, either in person or online, to ensure we’re a good fit for one another.

Create a plan

Together we will explore your wants, needs and aspirations and create a tailored plan that helps you achieve them as soon as possible.


Throughout our process, you’ll always have access to our team. Communication is key to success, so we prioritise being there for you.


In the longer term, we are always here to help you. Whether you’re needing a new hire or your next opportunity, you know where to come.

Statement from our director

This is not only about filling positions, but promoting careers and employers, creating success and progression for candidates and employers alike

When onboarding, we will always aim to either meet face to face, or have a video call to ensure we are a good fit for you. Our belief is that recruitment is like a consultation - so we will explore where you are in the market, and where you feel you should be. 

For candidates, we want to learn about your passions and desires before creating a plan for potential opportunities and proactively targeting them.
We are passionate about making connections that last.
