Engineering Australia estimates that Australian employers have lost approximately $3.8 billion in productivity and amassed $3.9 million in needless recruitment costs.

Covering a wide range of industries - from construction to consultancies, manufacturing to mining - the engineering sector drives both growth and innovation across the country.

As a whole, engineers are in steady demand. However, Australia is experiencing a shortage of engineers due to poor retention rates, and judging by the stagnant number of new engineering students this is unlikely to change soon.

As the demand for a talented workforce increases, engineering firms and corporations are reaffirming their need to partner with trusted recruiting and staffing agencies.

Trojan Recruitment places hundreds of engineers in permanent or fixed-term contract positions every year. Our team of dedicated recruitment consultants draw on their established personal and online networks, industry and professional memberships, as well as a range of sourcing tools to engage with the both passive and active candidates.

Our enormous database of reliable, skilled workers also makes it easy for you to scale up or down quickly as your needs change. And our recruitment methodology ensures that all placed workers have the hands-on technical skills required to excel within their role.
