Specialists in Automotive Recruitment


The automotive industry has pioneered manufacturing excellence for many years and continues to lead the way in Right First Time, Zero Defect and Lean Methods. However other industries embracing these techniques and attracting automotive talent, within an ever-expanding market, has created an unprecedented need to acquire and retain the best talent.

At RPS, we have a proven track record in placing talented contract, interim and permanent professionals with “hard to find” technical skills into global automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.

As well as having in-depth automotive knowledge, our highly-trained recruitment consultants understand the specialist, high tech skills your business needs to meet commercial deadlines. Thanks to a thriving global automotive industry, the talent pool is constantly changing which is why our consultants work hard at networking; keeping in touch with their industry contacts and constantly seeking out new talent. This helps to take away the burden of recruitment from your HR teams as we can quickly identify high-calibre candidates in the right geographic locations.

Whether you require an APQP expert, a Robotics Programming professional or a Whole Vehicle Designing innovator, RPS has an in-depth understanding of your challenges and the resource capability to overcome them.

But we also understand that it’s not just about skills and whether a candidate has the right technical ability – we know that personality and cultural fit can be just as important. At RPS, we don’t put round pegs in square holes, we work hard to ensure our candidates are a ‘perfect fit’ every time.
