What to look for when recruiting temp engineering & technical staff

In its broadest sense, an engineer is any professional who uses scientific knowledge to solve real-world technical problems.

More specifically, employers might search for: skilled and trained combustion engineers, gas engineers, manufacturing engineers, electrical testing engineers or heating and plumbing engineers.

Exact job descriptions are hard to come by, since so much depends on the particular requirements of each individual project. Yet some functions apply for all engineering jobs: evaluating the problem, developing mechanical solutions, testing results and monitoring systems.

If you’re looking to hire temp engineers or engineering contractors for a specific project or role, TempaGoGo can help – in a few minutes, our platform connects you with temporary recruitment agencies specialised in the sector. Those with available candidates will contact you in 5 minutes, on average.

Bear in mind you will probably have to pay a higher price in particular for very niche and hard-to-fill roles. Engineering is the profession with the highest skill shortages in the UK. Top engineers often go through four years of university, or rigorous apprenticeship programmes and graduate schemes before they can ply their trade commercially. So hiring this wealth of expertise, even on a temporary basis, does not come cheap.

In addition, the UK does not have enough engineers to meet demand, pushing up prices. One estimate from Engineering UK puts the number of engineers required in the UK by 2025 at 1.8 million.

With this in mind, most recruitment agencies will charge at least £20 per hour for their engineers. An electrical testing engineer, by way of example, normally costs between £22.44 and £27.04. For some more sought-after positions, such as BMS (Building Management Systems) Engineers, expect to pay over £35 per hour.

In any case, don't forget that the total price paid to temporary or contract engineering recruitment agencies will include the engineer's hourly pay, their NI and sick pay (i.e., all their statutory payments) and the agency fees.

In addition, you should only work with trusted recruitment agencies, such as REC or APSCO members. Engineers play a pivotal role ensuring the long-term safety of buildings, electrical connections or fire systems, so you have to ensure you can trust whomever you decide to employ.

Reputable agencies will often send over resumés of available and suitable candidates for you to make an informed decision based on a multitude of factors.

Since 9% of all temporary placements come from technical and engineering professions, most agencies are well experienced when it comes to sourcing excellent candidates.

Though engineers are well trained and highly qualified, it is your responsibility to ensure safe working conditions. Check the contract with your recruitment agency to determine who needs to provide what in terms of supplies, tools and protection wear.

If you’re looking to hire permanent or temporary engineering and technical staff, there are 853 recruitment agencies registered with the REC, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, specialised in this sector: 475 agencies can supply temporary engineering and technical staff and 521 agencies can source engineering staff for permanent positions.

You probably have a good idea of what sort of work you want your engineer to do for you. To make things easier, here is a list of useful links for specific engineering roles.
