Executive Summary

An expert partner to the global automotive and mobility industry for the development of innovative powertrain systems, this company required several Test Bed Operator/Service Engineers to support the Japan automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

Business Plan

Services within the powertrain industry are in high demand in Japan, and as a result the clients business is rapidly growing. They had an urgent need to hire multiple Test Bed Operator/Service Engineers to ensure they could maintain their growth momentum whilst meeting the needs of the current customers.
The potential candidates would need to have thorough understanding and experience in development of gasoline and diesel engines, to support the clients’ goal of providing the best engineering services for the development of automotive parts in Japan.

Needing a partner to manage the research involved in locating skilled candidates, the client approached Aerotek to assist with the project.

Aerotek’s Solution

Known for their research and mapping skills, Aerotek undertook a thorough analysis of the current market and conducted research into the client’s direct competitors to map out potential candidates. As the client had already attempted to fill the roles using their own resources, Aerotek also reviewed the candidates who had been previously unsuccessful (and why) to develop a deep understanding of the specific skill, experience and cultural alignment that the client was looking for.
This detailed review of the role requirements made it possible for Aerotek to identify the best matched candidates from the current market. Using their vigorous screening and selection process, Aerotek assessed the candidates’ needs, wants and interests against the requirements of the client to ensure a perfect fit.


To date Aerotek has placed three Test Bed Operator/Service Engineers with this client, assisting the hiring managers in refining the requirements for the role and assessing future recruitment needs.

In addition Aerotek was also able to provide analysis and market intelligence on other Automotive OEM and parts manufacturers, providing the client valuable insights from within their industry.

Several other senior and retained roles have subsequently been released to Aerotek from the client, further demonstrating value and strength of this ongoing partnership.
