Permanent Recruitment

Contingent Permanent & Contract Hire

With our highly skilled, specialist consultants at the forefront of our candidate networking model, SMS  have developed a fine-tuned internal database of professionals specific to the Automotive, Aerospace and Rail manufacturing sectors. These candidates have been qualified, interviewed and assessed against a set criteria which allows for a much more specific alignment to the skills required by our customers. Our database is shared nationally and updated in real-time, allowing all of our consultants immediate and precise information.

Retained/Executive Search

Our “retained search” function is best suited to skills that are considered rare in the market place. SMS will use cutting-edge recruitment techniques to introduce our clients to the “hidden gems” in the industry, candidates who are not actively seeking employment, but who hold a specialist set of skills aligned to our customers’ needs. We are sensitive to the nature of senior appointments and the risks businesses are exposed to and as such have developed a strategic method of extracting the best talent from a tight talent pool.​
Throughout the process our clients will be updated with our progress and key data will be shared to ensure we are leaving no stone unturned.

What Makes Us Different To Other Recruiters

Due to our management structure that we have at SMS all potential candidates that have been sourced are then interviewed by industry and departmental managers that have operated in the manufacturing sector with decades of experience enabling us to filter further through to ensure more appropriate staff are put forward for vacancies reducing the customers time of interviewing and speeds up placements for candidates.
