Jonathan Lee Recruitment cautions businesses to have robust resource planning and a consultative recruitment partner to overcome ongoing skills shortages
25 September 2015
Whilst many companies in the processing and packaging machinery industry have actively embraced market conditions and opportunities for growth, very few are adequately forward planning for skills, warn experts at Jonathan Lee Recruitment
Attracting highly skilled workers can be challenging, The UK Commission for Employment and Skills reported that employers in the automation sector are twice as likely to have hard-to-fill vacancies.
Richard Heaton, Lead Consultant at Jonathan Lee, comments: "It’s great to see the processing and packaging machinery industry in such good health. In the last six months alone our automation and robotics division has grown by 50% – reflecting the current market conditions.
"In the push to fill order books, businesses often fail to consider the implications of maintaining or increasing production levels with the sector facing a growing skills gap, while simultaneously a generation of skilled workers retires. In order to achieve both controlled and sustainable growth, businesses must have a plan in place to ensure that the right people are in the right jobs at the right time".
Visitors to the PPMA processing and packaging exhibition are invited to visit Jonathan Lee Recruitment’s stand (H64) to discuss how a consultative, added-value approach can help their businesses.
To meet the Jonathan Lee Automation and Robotics Team visit Stand H64 at the NEC, Birmingham 29th September and 1st October 2015. To pre-book an appointment call 01384 446 105.
