HR solutions for technical and engineering roles


We meet your need for specialist employees in technical and engineering roles.


If high-quality work is important, our HR consultants are familiar with the industry, know about the roles currently need to be filled urgently in technology and engineering and have the relevant pool of experts at their disposal in Switzerland and abroad. All of them are highly educated technicians and engineers with many years of project experience in short- and long-term assignments. 

As in many other construction and manufacturing industries, the engineering sector and many technical professions are experiencing a shortage of specialist staff as the degree of specialisation is also increasing steadily. What’s more, there are different training and development options in different countries. This means that it is even more important to be able to classify the variety of training pathways and qualifications correctly – this is added value that Manpower’s experienced HR consultants can offer you. 

These HR consultants have been recruiting top specialists from all over Europe on a continuous basis for years, including through active sourcing and systematic headhunting, and placing them with clients from the installation and construction sectors, automotive engineering, mechanical engineering and many other technical industries after they pass then aptitude tests successfully.
