This team have their very own special ways but there are very few people in the aerospace sector they do not have relationships with, they are genuinely passionate & excited about all things that fly. They try to educate the rest of us in the office but we leave it to them as the rest of us are still wondering how the Beluga stays in the air each time it flies over our Cheshire offices (Airbus A300-600ST we are reminded ad nauseam!)

The team is led by a former HR Manager from a well-known food manufacturer and their success rate is phenomenal.

About Us

Developing Relationships & Delivering Results

Over the last 25 years Jefferson Resourcing Group has been the recruitment partner of choice for a wide spectrum of organisations within the advanced manufacturing sector.

This has involved assignments across the automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical, packaging, food, FMCG and defence industries to name but a few and over this time period Jefferson Resourcing Group has adopted many of the lean manufacturing principles into its own business model.

Many of these tools will be familiar to you as we aspire to ‘world-class recruitment’ status incorporating cellular recruitment principles, ‘just-in-time’ strategies and ‘right-first-time’ methodologies all underpinned by our obsession with continuous improvement facilitated through kaizen events.

During the last two decades we have endeavoured to create a recruitment ‘centre of excellence’ using best practice, benchmarking and initiatives adopted form other ‘world-class’ organisations.

  • Cellular Recruitment

    Rather than having one consultant performing traditional 360 degree role, Jefferson adopts a cellular recruitment system that mirrors lean manufacturing processes to reduce variables and promote reliability

  • ‘just-in-time’

    Jefferson interview and assess hundreds of new candidates every week to mitigate against lead times thus ensuring quality candidates are provided in an expedient manner.

  • ‘right-first-time’

    Jefferson takes a detailed brief for each vacancy (adopting 5Y principles). In many instances we have designed a bespoke selection method so that the final short-list of recommended candidates is competency based rather than emotional.

  • PRO-metric select

    Candidate selection by role quantified attribute assessment processes resulting in closer match of candidate to job description
