Our service

We take the time to immerse ourselves in your business and go to great lengths to ensure we understand your business strategy, culture and key success factors, so we can source the best talent to fit your team. At Optima our Engineering Division supports engineering businesses locally, nationally and internationally and finds the best people for their teams.


All our consultants have a sound operational background, they have practical experience within the industry and understand the skills, experience and personal attributes required for specialist Engineering roles.

When you are looking to grow your technical capability, expand your engineering office capacity, or improve/underpin your engineering management team, you’ll want to be confident you are talking to a recruitment professional that understands both the Engineering industry and the job role inside out and back to front.

All recruitment businesses understand recruitment, but not all of them have the crucial and all-important industry specific experience that will add value to your business. That’s where our strength lies.
