In the software, engineering and physical science sectors we work with newly formed start-ups and university spin-outs, technical and strategy consultancies, as well as more established technical teams that are part of global multinational corporations.

We have followed and anticipated the market trends, and have worked with companies working on the latest comms protocols, web technologies, medical / healthcare devices, and machine learning / AI applications. What perhaps is less publicised is ECM’s knowledge and recruitment cover is actually more wide-ranging, and we have recruited for technical business development and sales, financial services, life sciences and chemistry. If there is a technical angle to a role, we have probably worked on this.

ECM has built up an enviable reputation as experts in sourcing specialised engineers, scientists and technologists. Companies trust us and seek us to help them find top candidates (typically with scarce skillsets) to join their teams. ECM is very people focused, and we look to work with our clients and candidates rather than just passing applications through. We look to provide our viewpoints of the market and give you an honest appraisal based on our own experience.
Technical recruitment for a company is difficult, and good qualified candidates can be hard to come by (if they weren’t, our services probably wouldn’t be in such demand!). Our business is centred on the team at ECM who work directly with candidates and clients. ECM consultants are all technical in background and amongst the ECM team we have first-hand experience of software, electronics, mechanical, chemistry, life sciences, and technical consultancy (to name but a few). We have good ties to universities amongst the ECM team, with alumni affiliations including Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial, UCL, UEA, Exeter, Nottingham, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Durham; so unsurprisingly, all ECM consultants are degree holders and many have advanced academics including masters and PhD level degrees.

If you are recruiting for specialist technical skills, or perhaps you are that scientific / engineering candidate, make ECM your first port of call and see how we could help.
