We're DATS Recruitment

Some six decades ago, our Founder and Chairman, Trevor Nickson, set up 'Design and Technical Solutions'...AKA DATS.

Today, our award-winning business resources all kinds of design and technical professionals, from graduate to director level, for some of the best-known engineering organisations. Whether it's a contract or permanent role you require, we're able to support key industries with the best engineering talent available.

Specialising in the Northwest, we know our clients, candidates and the markets we work in well. Our recruiters are specialists in their own dedicated area, each deeply embedded into their own niche with impressive market knowledge and extensive industry networks. Combine this approach with our commitment to ensuring relationships are at the heart of our business, and we believe we have a winning formula for our clients, candidates and contractors.

We're different from many other recruitment agencies because, primarily, we're engineering experts; we even have our own onsite design office - home to a team of CAD specialists working with some of the best-known engineering companies across the UK, and beyond.
