With over 50 years experience in engineering recruitment, we work closely with clients across the manufacturing, transportation, and infrastructure sectors. If you’re looking to recruit an engineer, contact us to find out more about how we can help your business.
We have you covered
Looking to hire an engineer but nervous of paying a recruitment fee in case they leave? Our standard fee guarantee means that you can recruit with confidence.
In a nutshell, we will provide you with a half-price replacement if the candidate leaves employment within 2 years if you paid our standard fee. Most engineering and rail recruitment agencies only offer a 12-week guarantee, which is just another reason to choose ATA as your recruitment partner.
We invest a lot of time at the start of the process to understand your business, your objectives, the role and the profile of a prospective recruit. We will agree an attraction strategy to ensure we can source the highest calibre of engineer candidate, and this then becomes the solid foundations from which we develop a bespoke recruitment policy for you, enabling us both to evaluate progress at every stage of the process.
ATA Recruitment has achieved an exemplary reputation across these industry sectors as individual businesses, and whilst they are continuing to operate in this manner, they are looking to educate the industry about the holistic Group service they can present to clients who would benefit from this integrated offering.
On site at their head office based at The Derby Conference Centre, also a member of the RTC Group, it is clear to see that bespoke offerings are the group’s forte. With a host of recruitment and HR solutions in this location alone, the group is primed to combine and tailor its numerous business services, and deliver them to clients on its impressive site (originally a centre for Rail Training), or at a location of their choice.
Bryn Clarke, Operations Director for Ganymede Solution says: “As a Group, we have operated successfully as an established and respected supplier within our specific vertical markets for over 70 years, and have proven that the key facets for successful and sustainable delivery are Sourcing, Preparing (Screen/Training) and Deploying”
When it comes to finding new engineering talent, clients within these business sectors should be looking at two recruitment companies to source their need.
ATA Recruitment Ltd provides white collar candidates within engineering and technical markets on both a permanent and contract basis. The firm are uniquely placed in the market to deal with both regional SME clients from their 8 satellite locations and multinational businesses which fall within our vertical sectors. As an experienced recruiter, with over 35 years experience they understand that the objectives and goals of a client organisation shape their recruitment policy.
ATA Recruitment has a proven track record in detailed screening and induction. They are supported by an occupationally competent compliance team; with processes developed over a number of years for the supply of candidates within engineering and technical environments. Clients can be confident that they will only recommend candidates that are suitable for the role, the candidate’s goals and aspirations, and that meet the client’s business objectives.
Scott Bulloch, Managing Director of ATA Recruitment states: “Our recruiters are able to build a detailed understanding of the correct cultural fit of an applicant and through this consultative approach provide our clients with increased efficiency in the hiring process and better retention thereafter.”
The RTC Group has strong business relationships with leading UK and International training providers. As such, are positioned to offer our clients objective and independent advice on implementing the right training solutions to suit their need.
The RTC Group measures the quality of services provided through various review methods including KPI’s and customer feedback. They also continue to improve the provision via a structured and systematic approach to safety, quality, delivery and innovation.
ATA Recruitment can provide white collar candidates, any contingent labour and safety critical engineers can be supplied through Ganymede, and the spectrum of skills/competency, behavioural based and health and safety training requirements is provided by our marketing leading training partners.
“As a Group we have almost been modest in our approach, quietly continuing to provide an excellent service to our ever increasing client base. We are in the fortunate position of being a Group that have benefited from organic growth and been able to increase our client base predominantly through our reputation, recommendations and retention.
The Group has strengthened through internal restructuring and significant investment within each business. These processes have provided us with the opportunity to realise the potential and true USP of our service offering, and it is time to start raising awareness within the industry about just what we have to offer” said Andy Pendlebury, Group CEO.
He continued: “Making us the first point of call for industry clients looking for an integrated range of HR services in recruitment and consultancy is the obvious conclusion. Collectively, we have the capability to source, select, supply and manage for a variety of engineering and technical firms”
It is clear that as a group, RTC recognises that commercial flexibility is fundamental, especially during the current economic conditions. The parallel to this commitment to providing flexible and focused technical solutions is their ability to structure the commercial aspects to suit the procurement objectives of their customers within each of their specialist and regional markets.
Source, prepare, deploy – it may sound like the objective of some military mission but in strategic terms it means these businesses are a force that clients should be looking to do business with!
Including ability tests as a part of our recruitment and development solutions helps ensure that only the highest calibres of candidates are recommended to our clients for interview.
With consultants qualified to SHL Level A standard, we are able to undertake and mark assessments which test a candidate’s present and latent capabilities within a given area (Mechanical Engineering for instance). Feedback will then be issued to clients, allowing for identification of candidates which hold both the essential technical competencies, and also soft skills which are required for the organisational culture in which they are to work.
Ability tests present a fair and effective mode of recruitment assessment, leaving candidates with a favourable impression of a client organisation, irrespective of the application outcome.
Tests include measures for verbal, numerical and inductive reasoning, manual dexterity, numerical computation, visual estimation, mechanical comprehension, technical understanding, fault diagnosis and spatial recognition.
Additionally, through providing an objective measure of ability, such testing can be provided to key clients in order to identify training needs and skills gaps of current employees. This will ultimately aid managers in becoming familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of each employee, enabling staff to be managed and developed more effectively.
The Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) came into force on the 1st October 2011 and ATA Recruitment is working with each of its clients to discuss and plan for any potential impact these regulations may have.
