Niche Recruiting in Remote Areas in Engineering Staffing


Aerotek’s engineering staffing segment provides personnel with specialized engineering skill sets across all industries. Aerotek is the number one U.S. provider of engineering staffing.

Customer Profile
The customer is a specialized manufacturing center that designs supplies for the packaging of food, beverage, health and wellness products. Their commitment to quality and efficiency in production requires them to have reliable employees who are committed to driving results.

Customer Objectives
The customer was experiencing problems with staffing fulfillment due to their remote location and need for niche expertise professionals. They had a high rate of attrition and were failing to source qualified new candidates to fill the open positions.
They sought a staffing partner who could not only source candidates with the skills and expertise required, but also find candidates who were available to work in their remote location.

Engineering Staffing Solution
Aerotek utilized the reach of our Recruiter WorkSpace specialized recruiting strategy, to source, screen and place contract-to-hire professionals in their facility. We utilized the reach of the Recruiter WorkSpace to source candidates who were familiar with the area, or had ties to the area, to ensure that the remote location would be a good fit for potential candidates. By screening candidates based on location, we helped our customer avoid the high rates of attrition due to location they had been experiencing.

Results
Within the first 30 days of partnering with our customer, Aerotek was able to fill positions which had been open for more than 90 days. We filled a high-level director position within one week and technical engineers within the first two weeks. We placed three of our contractors in a nine month temporary-to-hire contract, one of whom converted to permanent before that time.
