The automotive industry is ever changing as cars and trucks are becoming smarter with more connectivity options. Self-driving vehicles are just around the corner, and the adoption of electrification looks to change the market. These technological advances means that many automotive OEMs and tier 1 suppliers will need to work with a recruitment agency and executive search firm that can find the engineers they require to stay ahead of the curve.
180 Engineering partners with some of the biggest names in the automotive industry with a reputation as a recruitment agency known for finding the best in engineering and manufacturing talent. We owe our success to our approach of ensuring every candidate we present passes a thorough interview process with a recruiter from our team to ensure they have the right skills required to work with our prestigious clients.
A major automotive supplier was in need of a Quality Manager with expertise in IATF 16949 quality standards, continuous improvement, and who was bilingual in English and Spanish. The Plant Manager and HR Manager were growing frustrated by the candidates they had seen from their recruiting efforts and felt they needed help from an engineering recruitment firm that could quickly find them the right person for this role.
The HR Manager found 180 Engineering after a brief search of the top rated engineering recruiting and executive search firms. After a thorough intake meeting with the Plant Manager and HR Manager, the recruiters at 180 went to work searching through their network of quality engineering talent.
Shortly after that intake meeting, 180 Engineering had found several candidates with previous automotive quality leadership experience and ultimately placed a Quality Manager with all the skills needed, including fluency in Spanish and a Six Sigma Black Belt.
