Engineers needed in East Lancs recruitment drive

Lancashire recruitment specialist Neville Gee is targeting computer numerical control (CNC) engineers from central and west Lancashire with the launch of a unique website,, as the firm hopes to help employers source CNC engineers, with demand currently outstripping supply in the east of the county.

CNC engineering is very much a specialism of businesses in east Lancashire due to the area’s prominence in the aerospace, engineering and advanced manufacturing sectors.

As a specialist recruitment business, Neville Gee has been fielding more and more enquiries in recent months and has launched to assist employers in the area to find the best matches for the vacancies.

Current levels of demand for CNC engineers have presented challenges to many engineering businesses, so the site aims to advise businesses on a range of issues which will enable them to recruit and retain people who are well qualified, experienced and present a “good fit” for the business’ requirements.

The site aims to help employers engage better with job seekers, recruit the right people by accurate job matching and then work towards creating a cultural fit that helps the business retain the employee for longer.

Neville Gee, director Donnie Doran, said: “The East Lancs CNC Hub is a totally unique way in which we will provide a good first point of reference for CNC Engineers who are looking for new opportunities, as well as supporting the many businesses in the area that face the challenge of recruiting and retaining first class engineers. We want to partner with businesses to help them reduce the need for lengthy and frustrating recruitment processes, whilst increasing the number of positive long-term placements for employers and job seekers.”
