UK Engineering Recruitment: STEM Inadequacy

UK engineering recruitment is currently suffering from a chronic skill shortage that hampers not just the country’s productivity, but also its economic recovery. The alarming picture was raised by Kevin Green, chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).

The United Kingdom is known for having a splendid heritage of engineering excellence dating back to the age of the Industrial Revolution. The country is the beacon of innovation, specialized production, at the forefront of manufacturing excellence.

Engineering UK’s The State of Engineering 2016 report claims that the need is far from greater: the UK engineering recruitment shortage was projected to be a looming 1.8 million talents by 2025. They will need to find 182,000 skilled professionals every year up to 2022.

The great investment in infrastructure created a myriad of opportunities for skilled engineers. But with the high demand is a short supply to improve an ageing workforce. 2018 has been “a year of engineering” for the UK government to campaign for engineering skills gap and to further widen the pool of young people to join the profession.

The Root Cause


The shortage of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills have cost a lot in recruitment and staffing costs. In a survey of 400 HR executives in the UK engineering recruitment sector, 89% have struggled to hire engineers with the required skills in the last 12 months. Yvonne Baker, CEO of STEM Learning and an IChemE Member, tagged this as a storm for STEM businesses in the UK, a “very real skills crisis.”

The overabundance of UK engineering jobs delayed a lot of high-profile projects, making a great impact on the profitability of companies. In the field of civil engineering, it initially wreaks havoc on the construction of public spaces and services. The only way the skills crisis can be corrected is when a new batch of highly-qualified engineers join the workforce. Industry leaders need to recognize first the engineering crisis and to apply a concerted effort to bridge the gap.

Apart from a longer recruitment process, many companies are already forced to utilize a more expensive temporary staffing, to hire workers from lower levels, and to inflate the salaries just to attract the right talents. Worse comes to worse, many companies will soon hire candidates without any STEM background or just leave hard-to-fill vacancies empty.

Attracting migrant workers from skill-rich countries and improving diversity in the workplace, plus an outstanding employment practice could promote talent attraction throughout the sector. Nurturing and developing UK engineering recruitment by building a strong talent pool from overseas could eventually secure the industry. Global engineering recruitment is on the rise to fill the looming skills shortage.

International Recruitment Agency: Rensol 2020

Renaissance Solutions PH or more popularly known as Rensol Recruitment & Consulting, branded as the fastest growing recruitment agency in the Philippines is also confirmable as a leading ethical, international recruitment agency.

From their very humble beginnings up to their now extraordinary present, Rensol as an international recruitment agency has always strived to do the right thing. Their commitment to the highest quality standards, delivering professional and safe services to all jobseekers and workers is their motivation and reason why they remain active amidst all the hardships and challenges they face as a business.

Indeed, success for Rensol as an ethical international recruitment agency did not come easy. Yes, ethical recruitment is already existing when Rensol came to be but it was widely shunned upon. The international recruitment agency encountered dozens of principals who were in favor, were used to and have no qualms charging professional fees to workers for employment. More than a dozen deals were lost and it felt like a losing battle as most of their competition condones and promotes placement fees.

However, times are changing for the better. The challenges Rensol faced finding foreign partners that mirrored their principles as an international recruitment agency did not fazed them. The old negative side of recruitment is slowly wavering. While the demand for highly ethical recruitment is growing. Global organizations who are in favor and in support of responsible and ethical recruitment such as the World Employment Confederation and International Labor Organization (ILO) are now actively regulating employment and recruitment agencies around the world. Local regulating bodies such as the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) is also now stronger than ever.

Today, more and more international recruitment agencies are mirroring the “No Placement Fee” policy as it enhances their company reputation and enables them to differentiate themselves from unscrupulous competitors. In like manner, more and more foreign principals are recognizing the importance working with an ethical international recruitment agency such as Rensol and protecting job seekers by upholding worker rights, establishing clear worker protection and prohibiting fee-charging for employment.

Truly, ethical recruitment is now widely accepted and even sought after by many employers around the globe. Sticking and committing to what is right has done wonders for the recruitment and staffing industry.

As for Rensol, employment providers are now proactively meeting with them, seeking for their expertise in providing highly ethical recruitment campaigns for their talent acquisition and staffing needs.

Recruitment Practices: Top HR Solutions

Finding human resources, like any other business processes, are sets of tailored recruitment practices customized to fit the needs of the client company.

In a competitive job market, the success of hiring a great candidate is a combination of a well-thought-out recruitment strategy.  Many companies are now struggling to attract and retain top talents. The skills shortage is in abundance.  Formulation of sound recruitment practices that are efficient and effective have been done by top recruiters to successfully obtain the best and the brightest candidates.

Recruitment is a tough job. Failure to get the right applicants will surely hurt your business and your clients. Seasoned recruiters have these six best recruitment practices on how they could streamline strategies to find and hire the best among the rest.

 

  1. Systematic

Having a well-planned, thoughtful recruiting practices that are followed is one of the best indicators of recruitment success. A recruiter may have the best process in the business but if it is not followed, it will never be an effective resource. The automated workflow brought by the revolution of staffing technology introduced changes in pre-screening, online skills and behavioral testing, vendor management systems, and candidate tracking systems. Rather than making a hiring decision based on industry trends, plotting  and following recruitment’s long-term strategy is crucial.

 

  1. Compassionate to Great Talents

Oftentimes, there would be several good candidates for a single vacancy. Unfortunately, only one person could be hired but this doesn’t mean that top recruiters will get lost out of touch with them who didn’t get the job. Connecting with them through social media platforms like LinkedIn can help you to easily engage them again once needed. Maintaining  and developing a strong candidate pool makes recruitment practices efficient and responsive.

 

  1. Resourceful

With the usual fluid budget, aggressive timelines, and minimal resources, agility and resourcefulness in the industry is the most effective approach to acquire great talents. Being able to save time and money for the company and the applicant is an eminent quality for top recruiters. Shortening and streamlining recruitment practices and being flexible in skipping some steps as beneficial is  cost-effective.

 

  1. Analytical

Using analytics and boosting key performance indicators in assessing strategies is effective in developing recruitment practices. By knowing what works well, one can know what and where to invest and concentrate efforts.

 

  1. An Eye for Star Performers

Experience is still the most important trait to look for in recruitment. Years of experience has been a necessary indicator of credential. Technically advanced roles and comprehensive understanding of systems need quantifiable experience.

 

  1. Encourager

Even with the successful acquisition of highly-qualified candidates, guidance and encouragement at the beginning are still needed to effectively transport candidates to their job site. Onboarding is the springboard for newly-hired candidates to adapt to their new work environment. Leaving new hires to flounder is the time when trouble starts. Having a facility and equipment to orient workers before their deployment is effective in establishing retention among new hires.

Equipped with top recruiters, Rensol Recruitment assures every client companies that deployed candidates are qualified, prepared, and fit to their work environment. With all the six qualities of top recruiters, companies are assured that recruitment challenges are properly addressed.

Seasoned recruiters will always have an eye for star performers. Learn more of our best practices in talent acquisition and let us collaborate to achieve your business goals.

The Germane & The Genuine: German Automotive Engineering

High Fashion is to Italy, Haute Cuisine and Fine Dining is to France, Prestigious Educational Institutions is to the United Kingdom and Luxury Cars is to Germany. Seriously, when you think of world class automobiles, only one country comes to mind. With brands like Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Volkswagen, German automotive engineering has proven to be one of, if not the best in the world.

The Germane

Germany and cars are connected by a long history. At the end of the 19th century, Carl Benz produced the first automobile. Today, Germany is the fourth-largest producer of automobiles worldwide, after Japan, the US and China. The automotive industry is considered the driving force of the German economy. German automotive engineering, which places a strong focus on qualifications, employed around 990,000 people in 2017 – including a high percentage of expatriates from around the globe.

The industry serves as an instigator for many other industrial sectors. A large network of suppliers from the fields of mechanical engineering, metalworking, and the textile and chemical industries supply materials for the German automotive engineering industry and benefit from its large order volumes. The industry experienced a record year in 2016. According to VDA, an automotive engineering industry association, Germany’s annual car production reached a figure of some 5.87 million cars that year – the highest number recorded in the automotive engineering industry’s 125-year history. With several 5.6 million produced cars, this level could even be maintained in 2018.

The German automotive engineering industry’s annual sales reached a record level on 2017 with about 368 billion euros. The demand for skilled and technical manpower from abroad is a big part. About 45 per cent of all cars were able to be produced in Germany with the help of these overseas workers mostly from The US along with Middle Eastern and East Asian countries; including Egypt, India, Japan, China, and the Philippines.

The Genuine

Companies in the German automotive engineering industry are distinguished by their high technical skill and innovation. After all, they must survive in a dynamic market characterized by constant structural and technological change. 45% of German automotive engineering workers are employed in the area of Research and Development. Another 2% are filling in the executive and managerial positions. Some 5% are on the retail side of the business. While about 10% each are doing technical and skilled work. Clearly, the labor gap within the production side of the German automotive engineering industry is indisputable. The necessary numbers to keep up with today’s demand is evidently lacking.

The German automotive engineering industry has started looking for the necessary manpower abroad. Everyone in the industry is increasingly aware of the lack of German skilled workers to support the production of more cars in the country. Visa sponsorship for applicants outside EU is also now being supported.

International applicants are guaranteed with an easier path to fill in open positions as the government has taken measures to support recruitment campaign outside Germany and has also been supporting programs that target technical and skilled workers from high-unemployment countries like the Philippines.

Industry Innovation: German Engineering Germination

Germany, the largest country in the European Union, has shown clear signs of growth in research and innovation. The diversity of German engineering makes them a world leader in innovation, from physics and chemistry to cars and consumer products.

It is home to Nobel Prizes in the sciences and their scientific researches consistently rank the best in the world over. In a report by the Harvard Business Review, national success in innovation and growth isn’t really won by the United States or China, it is actually Germany which had won sustainability and diversity in many facets of engineering. The country has proven itself effective in adapting their many inventions to their industry and in spreading them throughout many businesses.

Constructive Innovation


German engineering is constantly training its workforce to enable them with all the most radical innovations that they are continuously adapting.

These innovations geared toward their empowerment and in improving their productivity. Unlike other disruptive changes that reduce the need for manpower, German engineering continuously creates and sustains good jobs across many spectrums. Sustenance of employment growth ensures real income expansion among many engineering firms in the country.

Mechanical engineering and plant engineering, being its most innovative industries, is its largest employer for engineers. Engineering has always been Germany’s hottest job fields. Qualified engineers are benefitted with solid salaries and wholistic perks.

Engineering Recruitment

Challenges facing German engineering are a national priority. Their government even launched an initiative called, “Industrie 4.0” to assist companies in digitization and in reducing their dependence on US technology.  This initiative suggests the need for a multitude of engineers to fully implement these changes.

The Federation of German Engineers foresees the need for the recruitment of about 85,200 engineers. The labor gap is expected to increase 3x over the next decade. By 2026, it was even expected that tens of thousands of engineering jobs will be considered  ‘hard-to-fill’.

Germany has over 1.7 million engineers but over 37% of them are already at least 50 years old. This accounts to more than 600,000 engineers that will retire in the next decade.

Big German engineering companies already started looking for professionals abroad. Everyone in the industry is increasingly aware of the lack of German engineers so they have opened to sponsoring Visa for applicants outside EU. The selection process has been really focused on technical skills rather than the nationality of each applicant.

International applicants are guaranteed with an easier path to fill in open engineering positions as the government has taken measures to support recruitment campaign outside Germany and has also been supporting programs that target engineers from high-unemployment countries like the Philippines.

Rustling & Rushing Russian Engineering

Russian engineering and its commitment to science and technology makes the industry at the forefront of the world. The country’s contribution to technological advancement has always been important.

Russian engineering has been trying to modernize and industrialize for 300 years now. Engineering and production of electricity have been a priority for the communists.  In all the fields of the engineering sector, Russia’s nuclear power engineering is the most progressive in the world.

A significant segment of the Russian engineering sector is in the manufacturing industry, automotive, oil refining, petroleum engineering, and electronics. It has depended on most of its wealth in resource extraction. Being a petro industry, its  economy mostly relies on the rise and fall of prices of oil and natural gas.

Russia is home to one of the greatest engineering accomplishments of all time. Trans-Siberian Railway is the longest railway in the world at 5,772 miles. There is no doubt that this structure has been the most spectacular engineering achievements ever made.

 

Engineering Recruitment

Moscow is an attractive city for many expatriates as a multitude of international corporations  are entering the Russian engineering market. Most multi-national companies require English speakers or foreign nationals with specialized skills, which are abundant in the Philippines.

For those who are looking to gain experience in the Russian engineering sector, finding a job in Moscow and St. Petersburg are two viable choices. Job for expats tends to be in highly skilled jobs or at the senior management level.

Rensol, being the leading recruitment agency for Russian employers, is tested to be a good channel for candidates seeking for Russian engineering jobs. Big corporate companies in Russia trust Rensol for delivering highly qualified workers in a faster process.

By 2020, it was projected by the Federal Migration Service that an estimated 2/5th of its workforce will be foreigners that will settle there for a longer time.

Russia offers diverse engineering employment opportunities, and, in most cases, expats are the best-paid professionals. In an economic survey by HSBC, expatriates in Russia are 13th in the highest grossing income earners.

Russia’s growing economy provides lucrative niches and opportunities for engineering professionals to work from. Besides the large-scale infrastructure development which is underway, major Russian engineering companies are also planning to erect six large automotive plants,   to rebuild their aircraft industry, and to establish its optoelectronics industry.

Engineering Recruitment Boom in Australia: Explore Brisbane as New World City

The engineering sector has been the largest non-services sector and the cornerstone of the Australian economy. It has employed 1.1 million people over the years; both local and overseas workers. For the second and last instalment of this series which tackles the engineering recruitment boom in the Land Down Under, let’s explore Brisbane as it transitions into a ‘new world city’.

New World City

 

Within a decade, Brisbane is projected to be Australia’s ‘new world city’. The reinvigoration of its built environment and lining up of major engineering projects are underway to modernize the city and to eventually enhance its appeal in the international arena. From a mining boom, the city has been slowly transferring to an engineering boom.

Billions of dollars’ worth of major engineering projects are rapidly changing the face of Brisbane. New opportunities pose a wealth of opportunity for investors and a leap for engineering recruitment.

Brisbane has been positioning itself as a leader in smarter infrastructure aside from being the largest economic hub in Oceania. Engineering, innovation, and digital technology were combined to challenge existing barriers and to consider new opportunities for smarter engineering. The Queensland Government invested in adopting a smarter and more sustainable engineering pipeline to prepare new breeds of workforce to the elevated level of deliverables in the near future.

Despite the city’s unique demographic, climatic, geographic, and economic characteristics, challenges in traditional engineering solutions push for a revolution towards a smarter industry. To compete globally, Brisbane initiated efforts to drive innovation to improve all-encompassing lifestyle within the most populous city in Queensland.

Engineering Recruitment

Engineering has been a significant component of Queensland’s economy. To cater to this growth in investment, Brisbane’s engineering recruitment has been growing fivefold year by year. With its well-established and firm infrastructure network, this city has been the principal center of Australia’s fastest-growing region.

Considering the engineering pipeline of the Oceania region, Brisbane is clearly concentrated with most of the current and pending developments. If Melbourne markets its apartment industry, Brisbane reflects strength in its global investment amounting to an outstanding $18 billion for its hotel market. Its tourism and hospitality industry significantly propel its engineering industry. Leisure infrastructure in its metropolitan economy impacts engineering recruitment in a positive way.

Like Melbourne, engineering boom certainly attracts more skilled migrants from overseas and interstate. With the increase in population is an increasing demand for adequate health, entertainment, and transport facilities. Population growth has been a positive sign for Brisbane as it indicated strong employment opportunities, especially in its engineering recruitment.

Engineering Recruitment Boom in Australia: Dive in Melbourne’s Sea of Cranes

The engineering sector has been the largest non-services sector and the cornerstone of the Australian economy. It has employed 1.1 million people over the years; both local and overseas workers. For the first instalment of this two-part series which tackles the engineering recruitment boom in the Land Down Under, let’s first dive into the vast sea of cranes of Melbourne.

Sea of Cranes

The number of cranes dotting the skyline signifies how successful the engineering industry of a city has been. Melbourne, Australia’s fastest-growing city, shows an infrastructure boom with a highly- evident sea of cranes in its residential and commercial areas. Engineering companies are flourishing with cranes erected almost anywhere.

The city was categorized in the second circuit of capital where engineering replaces manufacturing as the key driver of growth. To prepare for this, the Victorian government appropriated major engineering investments to propel these developments.

It was predicted by the Federal Government that the engineering recruitment of Melbourne will boom by 10.9 per cent within five years to 2022 with a projection to be the next largest city by 2046, overtaking Sydney as the epicenter of engineering in Australia. The engineering industry of Melbourne has been extremely busy, and this opens a lot of doors for various foreign engineering professionals looking to develop their career overseas.

Engineering Recruitment

 

Fueled by multi-billion-dollar projects, the success of Melbourne’s engineering industry suggests millions of jobs be created. The city’s economy heavily relies on overseas engineering recruitment to drive employment, keeping building more buildings within one of the most populous cities in Australia.

Continuous creation of infrastructure projects keeps the sector in business and in providing work to thousands of engineering talents. However, a real drought of quality local engineering candidates who can deliver builds at a high standard has been foreseen by various specialist recruiters. Overseas engineering recruitment increasingly boosts employment across its local economy.

Shane Garrett, an economist from the Housing Industry Association (HIA), cited that residential building activities have dwindled a few from its peak, yet it remained very elevated by historical standards. Along with this rise is the acceleration of engineering recruitment index for the past six months. Apparently, it has been at its fastest pace while even hitting an all-time high.

The employment growth and the increasing trend in engineering recruitment in Melbourne suggest a strong sign of confidence for the industry. Engineering activities have been “generally expanding” that makes its performance deliveries and employment playing well in the national composite index.

Engineering recruitment in Melbourne has been at its busiest. $100 million+ project space is still busy with several engineering projects from planning to the early stages of construction. The industry remains strong against tumbling approvals and the surge of the market for apartments with continuous migration from overseas and interstate. Melbourne has been welcoming 100,000 new residents year by year, which include Filipino workers and their families, which by the way are composite of its growing engineering workforce.

Construction Recruitment Agencies Aiding Construction Renaissance

Timetric, a construction journal, has been predicting that Russian construction recruitment signals return to growth as more and more investors are gaining confidence in their construction industry. Russian construction is one of the world’s largest. Moscow, the country’s capital, is full-packed with large-scale projects with its urban expansion. The country is anticipating making use of construction recruitment agencies now more than ever.

Apart from urban development and construction of railways, residential constructions are on the rise to revive its build and interiors sector. Demand for housing dramatically reaches a record high of 37.5%. Construction plans include renovation of tens of thousands of housing blocks, the building of new subway stations, and hundred kilometers of new roads.  Hence, the rise of construction recruitment agencies offering and providing similar talent acquisition services to meet these upcoming demands.

Rensol Recruitment, one of the leading construction recruitment agencies in the Philippines to Russia with the highest number of ongoing deployment, has the most active recruitment of skilled professionals bound to some of the biggest construction projects in the largest country in the world.

It was just recently when Russia was hailed to be a promising job destination for overseas Filipino workers given with the continuing diplomatic ties between their government and the Philippine government.

Rensol, as one of the best construction recruitment agencies in the Philippines, has deployed thousands of Filipino skilled professionals to big oil, gas, chemical, engineering and construction projects in the country. There is still an ongoing recruitment as there are still thousands of skilled workers in the pending roll to be deployed to Russia.

Russia has been diligent with illegal aliens and illegal foreign workers entering their country. POEA has been reminding workers and even clients to only deal with legitimate construction recruitment agencies.

One of Rensol’s first and lasting accounts is Renaissance Heavy Industries, the construction branch of Rönesans Holding and also the leading Turkish Construction contractor in Russia. They are responsible for the building of light production plants, heavy industry plants, energy plants, infrastructure plants, shopping malls, offices, hotels, factories, and government buildings in the World’s largest country.

Rensol believes that a successful recruitment practice in construction should not just involve finding qualified workers, but also those who can fit the work environment and could stay for a longer time. It was among construction recruitment agencies where attracting of skilled professionals start. Russian clients such as RHI find the current process of Rensol as very satisfactory in their current need.

The consistent track record of Rensol, one of the best Russian Construction Recruitment Agencies with its seasoned construction recruitment consultants and specialists, made the company one of the most reliable in the Philippines in terms of engineering and construction recruitment solutions such as effective headhunting schemes and onboarding, managing employee turnover, and employee retention.

Japan’s Automotive Industry Turns Global

Japan, despite being denied of rich resources, is blessed with the gifts of innovative and tech-minded people. Unfortunately, the country suffers from an abundance of jobs, yet too few workers are available to fill in every vacancy. As per Japan Times, the low fertility rate in the country and high life expectancy impacts the number of the local workforce. Many businesses in Japan are suffering from attracting the right number of employees they need. The skilled level of Japan’s Automotive Industry for one, being less sought-after, have been nearly impossible from being filled.

It is an important aspect to take notice that the local younger generation is not attracted to the skilled and mechanical posts of Japan’s Automotive Industry. The industry is going out of skilled and efficient workers. People are mostly in their retirement age and automakers couldn’t find a younger replacement for each of them. This is even with the Japanese world-known talent management schemes which include egalitarian compensation, lifetime employment, and tenure-based advancement.

In a study by the Recruit Works Institute, one in three Japanese companies are consistently failing to meet recruitment targets. The said tight labor market pushes for fewer job inquiries from workers for a common job title. Japan’s Automotive Industry has inexorably shrinking working-age population and there is no way of expanding the labor pool to correspond every job seeker to the abundance of jobs accordingly.

Turning Global

Japanese are very welcoming when it comes to dealing with international partners. With a stronger yen and undeniable shrinking of its domestic market, many companies under Japan’s Automotive Industry are trying to consider global recruitment in the coming of the new age, this is despite cultural and language barriers that some had found frustrating. Japan is still less global compared to its neighbouring countries as their way into globalization is still a work in progress.

Japan, being a monocultural and monolinguist country, has been critically trying to move to English as it opens itself to the vast world of talent. Little by little, companies are realizing the importance of embracing globalization and considering English as a second language to attain a rich exchange of talented people, especially In Asia.

Companies within Japan’s Automotive Industry are credible enough to be global leaders given their adeptness in manufacturing and technological prowess. Even in a slower pace, Japan as a sleeping giant is beginning to wake up. They have started by the recruitment of foreign automotive executives to take care of their international relations.

The role of automotive recruitment agencies like Rensol Recruitment is to promote active participation among the labour force by encouraging diversity in the workplace. Rensol’s major role is to help the most-fitting automotive and mechanical job seekers and employers find each other. Japan’s Automotive Industry is a goldmine and its entrance into the international job market is a big opportunity for a rich cultural and economic exchange for labor-rich countries.

Allow us to help grow your business and get you connected to the best automotive professionals available.
