We’re deeply embedded in the engineering & technical sectors

Since 1979 when we opened our business we’ve become extremely well connected, not just through our recruitment activities, but also by taking various initiatives such as:

  • We established the “Australian Engineering Career Network” on LinkedIn which has grown to be the largest Australian LinkedIn Group focused on engineering careers. We provide regular advice and information for Group members relevant to job seeking and careers in the engineering sector. We also run a second LinkedIn Group, the “Australian Engineers Mentoring Group Hosted by Australia Wide Engineering Recruitment” where we aim to link up experienced engineers to act as mentors for junior engineers.
  • Since 2008 we have distributed our quarterly “Engineering & Technical Recruitment Market Commentary” to around 28,000 candidates and client contacts. The commentary gives our specialist consultant’s views on how each of the main engineering / technical recruitment markets we operate in are performing.
  • We frequently give engineering career related presentations for relevant industry associations and large groups of undergraduate engineers at universities.
  • We are perceived by the media as being experts in engineering recruitment and careers. In recent years our views have been published by The Australian, The Herald Sun, The Sydney Morning Herald, and ABC Radio News.
  • We provided a submission to the Senate Inquiry into The Shortage of Engineering and Related Employment Skills. We believe we were the only recruitment agency to make a submission to the inquiry.
