Andy has been utterly brilliant supporting me with my job search. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Andy made the whole process a very comfortable and enjoyable experience. I am thrilled with the role that he found for me in a fantastic organisation. Thank you, Andy!

Ellen B – Project Manager

One of the best out there. An absolute pleasure to work and communicate with. Goes well above and beyond to match prospective companies and candidates, visiting the companies themselves, assessing before then carefully and thoughtfully helping candidates through the process. Would highly recommend and use anytime.

Tom M – Mechanical Engineer

My experience of working with Andy was exceptional. From initial contact until he successfully placed me into a new role, he consistently supported me in my applications. He went above and beyond to ensure he pushed me out of my comfort zone to pursue better opportunities and provided an approachable but professional service. Highly recommended.

Daniel C – Project Engineer

Mechanical Design

I understand the differences between various CAD software (both 2D & 3D) including; Solidworks, Creo, Inventor, Catia, NX & many more. Not only do I understand these, I can appreciate that there is a difference between Mechanical Design & Product Design and the challenges that fall within both of these areas. I also hold knowledge of various other processes including; FEA Analysis, CFD & DFMA.

Electrical & Electronic Design

Similar to Mechanical Design, my understanding of Electrical & Electronic Design is extensive. Whether you’re designing & developing Electrical Systems and/or components to high specifications using EPLAN or you’re designing a Multilayer PCB using Altium or OrCAD – I’ve got you covered.

Project Management

“Cradle to grave” “Concept to inception” these are all terms you will have heard of if you work within an environment where Projects are managed. I’ve worked with a number of clients having recruited a number of Project centric professionals over the years. These range from Project Engineers and Project Co-ordinators through to Project Directors.


Whether you’re building Special Purpose Machinery or you’re developing the next range of innovative Medical Devices, my manufacturing knowledge is strong. I hold a strong appreciation for the Lean manufacturing principles including Continuous Improvement, Value Streams, Flow & Pull.

Logistics & Supply Chain

Buyers, Supply Chain Engineers, Procurement professionals and so many more, my experience within Engineering & Manufacturing come hand-in-hand when it comes to the Logistics & Supply Chain side of things. To enable a product/project to be Designed & Manufactured, a strong Supply Chain function needs to be in place. I’ve placed a number of people within this sector to ensure just that!
