Redline Group celebrates 35 years of Technology Recruitment Success

28/06/16 Adam Walker Director

Redline Group celebrates its 35th year as a specialist Permanent, Executive Search, Contract & Interim Recruitment Consultancy. Based in Bedfordshire UK, Redline’s growing team of 50 + Consultants have been sourcing and selecting professional & qualified Management, Technical/Engineering, Manufacturing, Finance, HR and Sales/Marketing personnel for the ever expanding European Technology market for over 35 years.

Founded by an entrepreneurial couple from North London in 1982, initially as Technical Recruitment Ltd, the company’s innovative strategy was to focus on the then embryonic UK & European Electronics Industry. At that time, the industry was very much in its infancy, a time when IBM was launching the first Personal Computer (PC), there was no Internet, mobile phone networks, fax machines and most car windows still had to be wound up by hand!

Technical Recruitment quickly carved out a reputation based on industry knowledge, quality, character and trust, the company rapidly became the name synonymous with the recruitment of engineers, technical sales/marketing, manufacturing and executive staff within a fast-growing, dynamic technology based marketplace.

Today, Redline consists of specialist teams of Consultants, focused on disciplines and specific technology markets including Electronics, Engineering & Technical, Aerospace, Defence, Instrumentation, Process Control, Industrial Automation, IT, Semiconductor, Medical, Digital TV & Video, Telecommunications, Renewables and the Energy arena.

Redline’s Consultants continue to provide recruitment, retention and management advice & expertise to assist technology companies in identifying and developing the best talent for their organisations. Redline have successfully completed 1,000s of assignments across Europe at Executive, Senior Management level, Design Engineer and Account Manager.

From its creation 35 years ago, Redline Group has continuously evolved alongside the European technology industries, delivering the art and passion of specialist, knowledge-led recruitment to these £multi-billion sectors.

Redline continues to invest in the talent, technology and training, to ensure it is continually capable of delivering the specialist professionals demanded by this dynamic industry.

Redline’s 35 years of knowledge, contacts and connections is unparalleled in the technology and engineering recruitment sector. Over 100 years of recruitment experience in the executive management team leads to the on- going success, consistency and longevity of the business, the brand and the ethics which has created a pool of knowledge and experience which really makes a difference when recruiting sought-after talent from around the world.

“The focus on service and professionalism is as important now as it was back in 1982, these values are bound into the DNA of Redline. During the last three and half decades we have supported household names through to high growth start-ups recruiting across 1,000’s of organisation. All those clients and particularly the candidates, have turned to Redline Group due to our wealth of industry knowledge, trust and integrity ensuring every single opportunity and individual is treated as unique.” comments Adam Walker, Director.

“I feel privileged to have been part of an industry (technology) which has impacted on so many people’s lives in ways we could not imagine 35 years ago. The technology and engineering future is still very exciting and changing ever faster.” says Martin Crapper, Managing Director. “To know we have made a contribution to so many careers and lives with the tens of thousands of successful campaigns we have completed makes me feel very proud of our team, and I thank them, our clients and our candidates for their loyal support over those 35 years.”
