Assembly Managers – There is currently a lot of construction work happening in Western Australia with high demand for buildings with fully-glazed fronts. This is creating more work for
window manufacturers who in turn require experienced Assembly Managers.
Mechanical Fitters – Always in high demand, experienced Mechanical Fitters in the FMCG space are particularly sought after.
Production Supervisors – High level Supervisors who can be hands-on whilst also managing the day-to-day functions of teams are sought. Demand for Middle Managers is also high as there are not enough experienced staff to promote from within.
Temporary assignments are the focus of hiring activity, with most roles for blue collar candidates. We are however seeing some permanent white collar roles. The majority of employers are very specific when they are filling a role, often requesting exact industry experience.
We are seeing an increase in demand for candidates in the FMCG market for both lower to middle management roles. There is also a need for maintenance team members who can improve production efficiency.
