Recruitment firm has 1,000 manufacturing vacanciesJonathan Lee Recruitment (www.jonlee.co.uk) is ‘fielding’ a record numbers of vacancies, as the demand for roles to support engineering and manufacturing businesses throughout the West Midlands and the UK continues to grow.

Jon Blaze, head of recruitment operations at the Midlands-based recruitment consultancy, said: “In July, we saw a number of reports and announcements that highlight just how important manufacturing is as part of the UK’s economic mix.

“West Midlands’ manufacturing has had a stellar year, with output and order balances the highest of any region in the second quarter, and this is reflected in the number of vacancies that we are now handling.”

In July, the EEF reported that manufacturing jobs in West Midlands have increased by 9.9% since March 2010 — more than four-times the national growth rate.

Indeed, the West Midlands now boasts 14,670 manufacturing businesses — up 3.1% year on year. Moreover, confidence over the last 12 months is the joint highest in the UK — and the most improved from last year.

Charlotte Horobin, EEF regional director for the West Midlands, said: “Despite some challenging times, manufacturing in the West Midlands remains strong, and the region has been one of the best performers over the last year.

“Firms are really in their stride, with our export figures accounting for an impressive 10.9% of all UK manufactured exports.”

In conclusion, Mr Blaze said: “With almost 40 years looking after the recruitment needs of Midlands engineering and manufacturing businesses, this is a very exciting time for the sector, and businesses in the region will have to work hard to attract the best talent — especially in emerging specialisms such as energy storage, mechatronics, robotics and vision systems.”
