Technical Training Courses rolled out for Redline Recruiters.

Redline Group, the Contract & Permanent European Technology recruitment specialist, welcomed Eamonn Platt to their offices to deliver the first of the new technology training modules to Redline’s team.

Eamonn has a 1st class Engineering Degree from Imperial, an MSc in control Engineering and is a Chartered Engineer, and has enjoyed a 20+ year relationship with the Redline Group as a Senior Hiring Manager recruiting staff, and also as a Candidate. In conjunction with the Management team at Redline, Eamonn has developed a comprehensive training programme to ensure the Consultants are keeping their industry and technical knowledge at the forefront of this fast-paced sector.

At Redline we’re passionate about the technology sector and recognise the need to continually invest in our staff with training on advanced technical subjects such as Power Electronics, HMI and RF which complements the comprehensive recruitment training that all Redline Consultants benefit from.

Commenting on the training, Managing Director Martin Crapper said “I’ve worked with Eamonn since the early 1990’s, and know that in addition to his exceptional technical knowledge and ability, he’s got a great gift for communicating complex issues to a diverse audience. When we wanted to put this together, Eamonn’s name was top of the list.”

“Feedback from clients and candidates” continued Crapper “consistently reinforces the enormous benefit that having a technically literate team of Consultants brings to all aspects of recruiting in the high-tech sector. Whether it’s R&D, Operations, Manufacturing or technical sales/marketing, being able to get past the buzzword approach and really understand clients’ technology means we’re able to significantly improve the quality of our searches, our screening, our presentation to potential candidates and therefore improve the speed and accuracy of the shortlist we deliver. Ultimately we fill more roles, more quickly with better candidates and this dramatically improves the efficiency of our clients’ hiring and reduces the overall cost per hire.”
