Success Story

Finding engineering talent: Needle in a Haystack?

Since 2007 ARM has built a strong business partnership with MIRA and has achieved a great understanding of MIRA’s needs and skills required across the business. Because of this we can resource a regular flow of well-matched engineering talent and secure placements which are essential in supporting business growth and development. As a result, we delivered the right engineering talent, targeted to specific areas of business.

The Place: UK

Finding engineering talent: the requirements:

  • Fresh engineering talent to grow a respected, industry established research and development team

ARM are focused on our needs and continue to work hard for us as we continue to grow. The level of service we have received has been excellent.

Senior Manager, MIRA

That’s where we come in.

ARM’s impact:

  • Flexible recruitment assistance, precisely meeting MIRA’s needs for engineering talent
  • A multi-skilled technical specialist with full, detailed understanding of recruitment needs
  • Regular contact and frequent site visits, ensuring effective partnership with MIRA

Project history:

ARM has helped the rapidly developing organisation to find fresh research and development (R&D) engineering talent and continue its fast pace when it needed it urgently. As a result, these vital demands, we continue to develop our service and support to fully meet the company’s evolving needs.

How we help MIRA find engineering talent:

As multi-skilled technical specialists, we recognise the ideal candidates to match MIRA’s expectations. Through successful placements and highly competent account management, our capability to source and supply high quality, high calibre candidates. This is further backed up by the assurance of our regular contact and frequent site visits. Which ensures MIRA gets the service it deserves and requires.

MIRA’s needs require great flexibility in our service. For example, we recently supported a project in Italy which required the engagement of a third party to contact and source local candidates. Due to the existing relationships we already had in place, we were able to facilitate these international placements easily and successfully.

The ARM solution:

Our success stems from the relationship we have built since first making contact. Developing productive relationships within the business. Our Account Manager is in regular contact with MIRA’s Hiring Manager. This way we understand the needs of the team and prepare for any upcoming projects.

ARM frequently receives positive feedback from MIRA on the quality of service we provide. The relationships we have developed and our ability to provide closely matched candidates.

To facilitate this, we gained a great insight into corporate goals and expectations and, provided MIRA with a dedicated account manager and real-time candidate market intelligence. In addition, we as provide bespoke microsite and UK-wide candidate attraction events and support.


“This hard won business has now built significantly to a level where we are now seen as a serious contender for such work packages across several areas of the OEM’s engineering team.

This growth has required an ever changing complex mix of skill sets to be deployed, often at short notice. In many cases the skills required were not in existence within MIRA. As a result, the recruitment of suitable candidates represented a significant ongoing challenge for the MIRA team and our recruitment agencies.

ARM has been the best performer of our regular agencies on these targeted recruitment assignments. Submitting the most appropriate candidates in a timely manner and being the most proactive in follow ups and ensuring we then secure the candidates.
