The success of a business, site or department is determined by its people and the engagement, support and vision delivered by its leadership team. That is why Elevation’s Engineering & Manufacturing division have a dedicated practice to identify leaders and directors of both today and tomorrow for our clients.

With an unrivalled network spanning the entire manufacturing sectors, along with the latest tools and technology, we can identify the best candidates the sector has to offer.

We know what good looks like but appreciate each client’s perspective of this will be different. By spending time with our clients and taking a thorough brief we are able to pinpoint the search requirements and apply that to each stage of the screening process; be that sector knowledge, technical expertise, situational experience, ownership structure or cultural fit.

With over 50 years of combined experience, our Leadership & Director Appointments team take great pride in our work and understand the impact our placements make to both the business and the candidate. 

Our success and passion speak for itself. We look forward to working with you on your next assignment.
