manufacturing recruitment

The manufacturing industry is evolving. Trade regulations, mergers and acquisitions, smart machines and automation, shorter production runs, and seasoned talent that's aging out of the workforce. Compound this with a growing need for hard-to-find roles like health and safety engineers, which take twice as long to source and hire as line jobs like assemblers and fabricators.

Companies need talent today. But they also need a plan to diversify their workforces for tomorrow. Employers will face a massive shortfall of labour if they can't enlarge their talent pools by attracting more diverse talent, including women and younger candidates.

That's why manufacturing companies have trusted iCIMS for 20 years to attract, hire, and retain their winning workforces in any business environment.
