Engineering and Manufacturing Practice

Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the East Midlands: we are dedicated to this region and given its industrial landscape, it’s not surprising that our Engineering and Manufacturing Practice is central to Parkinson Lee’s continuing success. And as economic growth has fuelled the demand for effective leadership in these sectors, so the challenge for that leadership has become more demanding. From Site Directors and Functional Heads to Operations Directors and General Managers, technical authority is largely taken as read; commercial success is now contingent on visionary leadership, strategic coherence and inclusive people management - from our vantage point, arrogance and autocracy, command and control, are for yesterday’s people.

Across Engineering and Manufacturing - both by sectors and functions - Parkinson Lee has an excellent track record of success in the identification, attraction and appointment of today’s top flight leaders. That success in Executive Search can, of course, be attributed to the depth of our industry knowledge and the breadth of our networks. The rigour of our research and the detail of our processes. Or the subtlety of our judgements about shortlisted candidates. Above all, however, we think it’s down to one thing. Experience. Experience of a wide range of sectors and an even wider range of clients. Experience gained over years and years. And experience supporting a sophisticated Search team, unrivalled in our specific Region. At Parkinson Lee, our OTIF is indeed well above world class standards.
