Manufacturing & Industrial case study

Senior director head hunt for global Automotive Tier 1 manufacturer. 

Our client

Our client is a international automotive supplier with a European headquarters and 26 sites across the world. They are proud to be a leading manufacturer of complex plastic sub-assemblies, supplying to several major automotive OEMs. They offer a innovative design service, delivering the highest level of technical competence to contribute to the individualisation of vehicle design.


Initial scope

Our client was going through a considerable and prolonged period of growth, opening up a brand new green field facility, which required several members of the senior management team to focus their efforts leaving a void in the operations of the original facility. The decision was made to partner with a recruitment business that would embark upon a detailed search and selection process in order to find  a business leader to take on the full operational management of the facility.


The journey to date

SF Engineering approached this as a significant head hunt for a specific skill set.

A strategy was derived to map out the market through competitor analysis to deliver success.

Through a transparent and relevant recruitment process, consistent and open end communication, we delivered an end-to-end recruitment solution.

With a dedicated team of manufacturing industry experts we were able to cover every corner of the market to attract the best possible individual into the role.
