The UK manufacturing sector is strong and is currently ranked the 11th largest manufacturing nation in the world.
Manufacturing makes up 11% of UK GVA and 54% of UK exports and directly employs 2.6 million people. Major sectors include aerospace, automotive, chemical, construction defence, electronics, food and drink, plastics, furniture, steel and textile.
Textile = 340,000
Plastic = 180,000
Electronics = 850,000
Defence = 300,000
Chemical = 600,000
The trend towards a flexible workforce is driven mostly by the contractual nature of the manufacturing industry, combined with seasonal demands, the temporary workforce plays a permanent role in the operational success of this sector.
In a bid to tackle the high demand for temporary workers, we have developed over 320 networks across the UK, with 10 large business centres and 9 satellite offices.
Our Group candidate database now exceeds 250,000, allowing us to rapidly respond to high volume demands.
