Who are the best engineering recruitment agencies in the UK – 1000’s available, who should you select?

A customer recently asked us, were we aware that there are more than 1000 engineering recruitment agencies in the UK and that it was very hard to separate the best engineering recruitment agencies from the bad. With this in mind Sigma’s Founder – Rhys Williams provides a quick guide to engineering recruitment in the UK.

The engineering recruitment agency market

The UK market for engineering recruiters is fragmented. They include large international firms, solo recruiters working from home and everything in-between. Also, company size does not normally determine the quality of engineering recruitment agencies. A lot of the time the smaller recruitment companies will have more experienced staff. In some cases, you will deal directly with owner-managers who have many years of experience in engineering recruitment.
