Our Experience

From energy, oil and gas, to mining; through metals, and chemicals; to engineering, aerospace and defence; and global logistics and distribution; the world’s large-scale industrial businesses are all gathering the intelligence and putting in place the plans to help them identify, understand and engage with the talent that they will need in the future.

From the newest start up to the most established international corporation, organisations need agility to thrive in the ever-changing business landscape of excitable economies, advancing technology and legislative change. Intelligent people run agile businesses, so identifying and engaging the intelligent people that will lead their businesses into the future is a priority for world leading industrial businesses.

In such a competitive world, the best people are highly sought after. We help businesses not only to identify such talent, but to understand them. By building a complete picture of not just their skills and experience, but also their motivations and aspirations, we help our clients position themselves to attract industry’s best people.

I'm very happy with what Armstrong Craven has brought to the table. The standard of candidate they provide is very high and it's good to be presented with fresh options. This is reflected in the fact that most of those who joined us through Armstrong Craven have remained with us. Measured against the high turnover previously experienced, this is a major advantage.
