Industrial Recruitment Agencies Directory

Industrial jobs span a wide range of employment opportunities, including everything from manufacturing to purchasing and sales. But the common bond shared by these diverse jobs is their propensity to involve mass production and large-scale business activity. Both part-time and full-time positions are widely available in the sector, and jobs necessitating graveyard shifts and unconventional hours are also common to the field. This is because many businesses can improve profit margins by keeping industrial equipment running around the clock, thereby saving the expense of shutting down and restarting dynamic and many-faceted manufacturing processes.

Recruitment agencies routinely find placement for warehouse operatives, forklift operators, distribution managers, and machinists. Most jobs in the field do not require formal entry-qualifications or special certifications. Academic degrees are seen as an asset, but are not typically necessary. Instead, apprenticeships are a common method for entry into the field. Depending upon experience, skill, and the level of responsibility involved in the position, salaries range from about £16K to upwards of £42K. About 45% of the workforce in the sector earns between £20K and £25K. Although average salaries show little variation throughout the UK, those working in London tend to make more than their counterparts in other regions.

Other popular locations to enter the industry include: Aberdeen, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Crewe, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Guildford, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Milton Keynes and Newcastle.
