    Automotive, Logistics & Distribution - The Road Ahead

    ​Automotive, Logistics & Distribution – The Road Ahead There are huge challenges ahead for the Automotive, Logistics & Distribution industry as what Boris Johnson terms the “green industrial revolution” is underway to drive us to a low carbon economy.   This race to innovate set against the backdrop of the global pandemic has created a unique set of demands for vehicle operators.   Here’s some of what we’re seeing: Diesel and petrol cars and vans will be banned from 2030 and HGVs will soon follow.  As a result, we need the engineering and technical skills to manage high levels of electric or hybrid vehicles on the road – and at present (according to the Institute of the Motor Industry) only 5% of vehicle technicians are trained to work on these vehicles.  Furthermore, training in the vehicle retail world plummeted by 85% in 2020 when many dealerships furloughed staff and reduced investment in training following a slump in retail sales.  Product and strategic specialists with electric vehicle knowledge, data scientists, data analysts and business information specialists are all in demand as large Automotive fleet operators seek to understand how to decarbonise their fleets whilst meeting changing customer demands. Supermarket home delivery and parcel delivery from online shopping demand has exploded, so fleet managers, account managers, technical operations and workshop operations staff in these sectors are in demand, however on the flip side of this, businesses who deliver supplies to and remove waste from the hospitality sector have experienced a huge loss in demand through the sustained lockdowns and tier system closures the industry has seen. One might expect an influx of candidates wanting to move from badly impacted to booming sectors however we’re seeing many candidates choose to stay with their current employer to maintain furlough eligibility and redundancy rights so competition for talent is sharpening.For more information on the future of the Automotive, Logistics and Distribution recruitment landscape, please get in touch with Francesca Loughrey, we'd love to hear from you.

    Our insight into Engineered Products - what the market is doing

    ​What gives us our #expertopinion in Engineered Products Recruitment? Well, we’ve been operating in that sector for many years, and our resident Steve McKiernan has his eye on what’s changing, and what’s not.Here’s how we see things at the moment:There’s a real variation of demand across the sector. Some areas are in decline (Aerospace), others are flat (Automotive/OEMs) but with some signs of improvement, and other sectors are in growth (Building Materials such as Steel, Fabrication and products used in construction). The impact of Brexit. Manufacturing has shifted both ways, in some cases into the UK such as our clients Jotun and Emerson. Others haven’t been so fortunate, and seen manufacturing moving overseas.There’s still a skills gap. People with strong technical and engineering skills are badly needed (Engineering is identified by the IET as a desired skill and 1 in 2 businesses are concerned that the skills gap will affect business growthhttps://www.theiet.org/media/press-releases/press-releases-2019/18-november-2019-1-in-2-uk-engineering-and-technology-firms-are-concerned-that-a-shortage-of-engineers-in-the-uk-is-a-threat-to-their-business/)Our clients recognise this. Even though there are more candidates available does not mean they are more appropriate.IR35 will affect Engineered Products as April 2021 approaches. Whilst there are more available contractors, some have taken FTC roles within businesses. We predict that within Engineered Products, along with other manufacturing businesses, the risk of high levels of attrition is great once the market picks up after April and more lucrative day rates are available.We've plenty more to talk about, just get in touch and see how we can help you.

    Latest trends in Medical Devices and Pharmaceutical Recruitment

    ​Spotlight on the Medical Devices and Pharmaceutical market.What gives us our #expertopinion in Medical Devices & Pharmaceutical Recruitment? Recruiting into the regulated sector has always been challenging but #Covid has accelerated things.Here’s the state of the market at the moment in January 2021There’s still a skills gap. In demand are people with experience in Quality, Regulatory, Validation, R&D and QPs. Good candidates are in demand and employers need to be creative in how they attract talent.To recruit effectively, a well-established network is vital. Having established relationships with a broad range of people brings knowledge, recommendations and credibility. All important for an effective recruitment process in a market where candidate supply is dwindling.Hiring Managers are well qualified, capable people, but they’re not recruiters. To successfully hire, you need a partner who can support you, whilst you do your day job which you’re brilliant at.Trends we are seeing are salaries rising as demand for candidates grows, and candidates requesting clear career paths once established in post. Commitment from the employer to employee about personal growth, and flexibility to entice a move.Growth in businesses where there is spare manufacturing capacity – we’ve already seen this with one of our key clients, Wockhardt, who are manufacturing the Covid vaccine.We expect to see greater hiring in the supply chain, not just as the vaccine is rolled out, but lessons are learned once the initial surge is through and supply chain security is advanced.Emerging businesses as new technologies are developed, rolled out and market adoption increases, along with an appetite for investment and acquisition.For more insight into recruiting into Medical Devices and Pharmaceuticals, please contact Richard Clegg or a member of the Expion team - we're really happy to help whether you're a client or a candidate.
