Clayton Cruise - Award winning Engineering Recruiter

1998 - 2017 Celebrating 19 years' experience in Engineering Recruitment including founding and heading up Proactive Recruitment Solutions since 2003.

Why work with me?

Unlike most recruiters who work all types of jobs; I have for the past 18 years worked within the engineering sector and have placed over 1,000 people during that time.

I understand engineering extremely well and will not discuss roles with you that do not meet your criteria or your abilities.

What does my support cost?

It costs you nothing for my support, I generate my income by charging companies rather than candidates for my support.

What other roles do I have that may suit you?

Most of the companies that I work with work with me on an exclusive basis, so by registering with me it will enable you to gain access to engineering roles that other agencies do not have.

What to do next?

To start the ball rolling all you need to do is email your CV to me. I will be back in touch with you to discuss what you are looking for and job opportunities that I have that match what you are looking for. So what are you waiting for.
