We are experts in additive and advanced manufacturing recruitment

Why it’s difficult to hire in the additive and advanced manufacturing industry.

Talent shortage

The demand for talent is growing faster than the supply. This means that very few professionals are actively looking for new job opportunities in the additive and advanced manufacturing industry.

Salary

In this young industry, there is yet to be an established salary benchmark. Employers are throwing darts in terms of salary, resulting in job offers being rejected by candidates

Costly and time-consuming

Finding the right professional in an industry with a talent shortage and few active candidates is time consuming and costly.

What happens if you don’t find the right professional?

If we hire someone through you and the professional leaves, what happens?

If the professional leaves within 6 months of hiring, we are happy to replace this professional with a similar profile – free of charge

The hiring process at my company often involves the candidates getting to know confidential information that we don’t want disclosed to our competitors. What if we end up not hiring the candidate? How do you deal with this?

We are happy to help you deal with this issue by providing a template for a non-disclosure agreement that you can have the candidates sign
