Increased demand for technical interim staff prompts Morgan McKinley to create new recruitment team [press release]

Aldagh McDonogh 12.05.2011

Irish-owned global professional recruiter Morgan McKinley has set up a team dedicated to interim technical roles, due to significantly increased demand for contractors in this field.

The new specialist team in Dublin will supply technical contractors across a range of sectors including: supply chain, procurement, operations, engineering, process improvement, Six Sigma, life sciences and energy.

Prior to the recession, the majority of demand for technical contractors was from the manufacturing and construction sectors. However in the past few years the pressure on professional firms to keep their teams ‘lean’ has increased the popularity of technical contractors, who are seen as efficient and flexible solutions to our customers. Further growth is forecast for technical positions in Q2 2011, with export-led manufacturing companies expected to provide the highest number of job opportunities.

The new team will be led by Sharon Ryan, who has played a key role in developing Morgan McKinley into a market leader in technical recruitment in Ireland.

Sharon Ryan, Senior Consultant, Morgan McKinley commented:

“More and more companies are hiring technical contractors to undertake specific projects, provide extra resources during busy periods or maintain a flexible workforce during times of uncertainty. Contractors are seen as cost effective professionals who can ‘hit the ground running’ to make strategic improvements to business.

“Contracting is also becoming an increasingly attractive career option for technical staff due to the high pay rates, flexibility, independence and exposure to a variety of systems and organisations that it affords.

“It is a dynamic time for technical recruitment and we are excited to set up a specialist interim and contract technical team to cater to this increased demand.”
