As a result of ongoing investment in machinery, automation, IT and training and development, the outlook for UK manufacturers looks bright. It is an evolving sector, shaped by global markets, cohesive supply chains and the acceleration of disruptive technology. Key drivers for investment are improving productivity, innovation and product development.

UK Manufacturing and specifically bulk materials handling have gone through a lot of change in recent years but continue to show signs of robustness as the economy goes through an uncertain time. In order to stimulate growth, companies must adapt, change and recruit personnel with the required skill sets and experience to fully embrace the prospects that are presented to them.
Depressed prices for recycling material and the devaluation of the pound have increased margin pressure in the waste industry. With landfill in the UK in steep structural decline and the build out of alternative waste treatment infrastructure continuing to progress, the market environment remains challenging. With Brexit looming, further sector consolidation and continual policy changes, the medium-term outlook remains uncertain.
With many years experience recruiting quality and TIC professionals we have developed an extensive network of high performing candidates along with an in depth understanding of the sector and its nuances. Working at all levels across systems management and product testing we are a leading recruitment solution provider that specialises in this field.
Human capital remains a key asset for business service providers. To stay competitive, services firms must remain at the cutting edge of technology, constantly able to drive increased value for customers and stay one step ahead of the competition.
Transport and logistics plays a critical role in the UK economy, yet faces the same high level challenges as any other sector – the need to cut costs, increase efficiencies and attract the right talent. At the same time, small margins and the cumbersome nature of moving goods from one place to another, makes disruptive change very difficult. Growing expectations from consumers for anytime, anywhere delivery continue to drive innovation, and key to staying ahead of the competition will be the right people and skills, including strategic management, customer service and advanced IT capabilities.
