Aerospace & Automotive Engineering Recruitment

Aerospace and Automotive engineering recruitment service

The Aerospace and Automotive engineering industry is flying high. With Amazon and Domino’s both trialling delivery drones and NASA getting closer to putting people on Mars, the aerospace and automotive industry is becoming increasingly competitive and the candidate pool is becoming highly specialised. 

A new wave of Scottish talent is emerging with the niche-skills to put Scotland at the forefront of this dynamic and growing sector. Carmakers are accelerating into an electric future, manufacturers, suppliers, service providers shift their business models and now look for different skills from employees. The aerospace and automotive industry is a new and emerging area for candidates, with connected cars and autonomous vehicles and the entire industry pooling knowledge to resolve the battery/energy challenge to sustain the vehicles of the future.

At the same time, the automotive industry is becoming more innovative while maintaining their origins as the concept of vehicles and automotive parts become more and more futuristic. Whilst the UK automotive companies experience growth in export markets, domestic manufacturing continues to attract talent with new programmes for the UK automotive industry.

Recruitment opportunities within Aerospace and Automotive Engineering

Like most cutting-edge and innovative industries, the Aerospace, Avionics and Automotive sectors have skills gaps. With an ageing workforce and limited people entering the sector with the right skills, experience, qualification and attitude, it is clear that the demand for experienced professionals has increased.

As both the Aerospace and Automotive industries march forward and desired skillsets become more demanding for employers, and without the right talent, it doesn’t take long for organisations to fall behind.

  • Applications Engineer
  • Automation Engineer
  • Aeronautical Engineer
  • Design engineer
  • Commissioning Engineer
  • Avionics engineer
  • Production Engineer
  • Hybrid and Electrification Engineer
