Well-rounded, high performing engineering professionals are highly sought after. And for organisations on a growth trajectory, finding highly skilled talent – from entry to senior/executive level – is absolutely critical.

At Decipher Group, we’re actively placing candidates in the engineering, manufacturing, and construction fields, as well as other technical type roles. Our team have real-world market knowledge and touch points within this specialist area of recruitment. It means we have an extensive pool of specialist talent literally at our fingertips. We also know what motivates these candidates and what is required to attract and secure the right talent.

Our ability to deliver results for our clients starts with a thorough understanding of their business and the type of person who would succeed in a role. That includes a deep dive into an organisation’s culture, team performance and the ‘working style’ of the workplace.

From high-calibre graduate positions through to senior leadership roles, we understand the mix of hard and soft skills required of today’s engineering professionals. This is particularly relevant for roles that require broader expertise beyond the ‘technical’, for example the ability to lead teams, innovation and creativity, influencing and driving change, as well as broader commercial and strategic capability.

Our team can help you get on the right path with our talent market mapping service – providing in-depth market intelligence and analysis of current employment, organisational trends, and candidate activity for a particular role or function – that will help realign your hiring strategies and goals.

We apply DEI principles to our search processes and work alongside our clients to build diverse, high-performing teams. For example, we offer a fully blind CV report that removes identifying factors, to ensure your policies are met and any unconscious bias is mitigated as much as possible, from the recruitment process.
