Industry & Manufacturing

The industry and manufacturing sector faces multiple challenges. From embracing technological advancements in production processes and digital transformation of the supply chain to embracing sustainability and plugging the skills gap needed to service these imperatives.

 

When it comes to acquiring senior talent to address these challenges, we have an excellent track record in delivering candidates from B2B, OEM and consumer led backgrounds to bring new thinking to our client’s challenges.

In the ever-changing world of industry and manufacturing markets, we understand the nuances associated with a diverse range of markets including Automotive, Aerospace, Chemicals, Consumer Goods, Building Products, Powergen and Electrical / Electronics. As such, we are constantly focussed on delivering a service that encompasses the latest insights and overcomes the major challenges associated with senior talent acquisition.

As immersed market specialists we apply an “always-on” approach in building our networks and relationships. So, alongside the interviews we conduct for live search assignments, we meet and stay connected with the key members and decision-makers across industrial and manufacturing communities, whether that’s corporate board members, private equity fund managers or owners of SMEs looking to scale and/or sell.

As a consequence, we have a real-time understanding of the dynamics affecting the marketplace and the people within it. We also have an outstanding platform at the outset of each assignment that allows us to provide invaluable advice and counsel in shaping the brief, as well a greater speed and established trust when approaching the market.

Whether that is the holistic challenge of D&I across the sector or more bespoke considerations of a client’s required journey of change, we have the track record and industry knowledge to provide the consultative support required.

What do our clients say?

We had not worked with bpesearch before but were impressed with the approach to the task and the clarity of process that they brought. The project was executed swiftly and with just the right amount of attention and contact from our side. They delivered an excellent shortlist of candidates with a very interesting range of backgrounds and attributes. Ultimately we ended up with a great final choice whom we anticipate will make a step difference to our business.”

Marshalls, HR Director

I have used  bpesearch  to recruit a large number of senior individuals within the UK and right across Europe. It’s a great partnership as they really understand the company (and do a great job of selling it) and the culture to the extent they feel like an extension of our team. Every candidate they put in front of us is on brief and of high calibre. I would highly recommend them

CooperVision, SVP Europe

Mike worked in partnership with us to really understand what we were looking for and ensure he targeted candidates that could make a real step change in the role and grow in the future. Mike presented a thorough shortlist and ensured all the candidates were supported through the process. We now have the right person in the role and the feedback from the line manager and candidate is extremely positive regarding Mike and bpesearch.

Ibstock, HR Business Lead

bpesearch have supported a number of key strategic appointments to help us improve the capability of our leadership team.  They took time to really understand our business, culture & needs and constantly offered good counsel and guidance during the process. Every candidate they have recommended has been extremely well briefed and well prepared for interviews and the team have kept in touch throughout notice and onboarding periods.
