At Sigma Recruitment, we understand the importance of finding the right candidate for your role. That’s why we offer our services as an international engineering recruitment agency. We have a global network of talent to help UK-based recruiters find the ideal candidates from overseas.
Why Recruit International Candidates from Overseas
The engineering and manufacturing sector faces significant skill gaps in various areas such as automation, digitalisation, and specialised technical skills. Companies struggle to find the right candidates for these roles within the UK, leading to a shortage of qualified workers.
Recruiting from overseas allows companies to access a wider pool of talented and skilled individuals, who have the expertise required to bridge the gap. This is particularly important in today’s globalised world where companies need to stay competitive and innovative. By recruiting internationally, companies can fill the skill gaps in their teams, bring fresh ideas and perspectives, and create a diverse workforce that reflects their global outlook.

Firstly, finding candidates with the right technical expertise and qualifications can be difficult, particularly if there are different standards or qualifications in different countries. Also, time zone differences can make it difficult to arrange interviews and communicate with candidates in real time.
However, despite these challenges, recruiting from overseas can be essential for companies to bridge the skill gaps in their teams and access a diverse pool of talented individuals. Let Sigma Recruitment’s team help you navigate through the potential pitfalls of international recruitment.
