Defence & Security Sector Recruitment
Supporting specialist engineering and technology companies in the defence and security sector is a key part of our service and heritage
Moving you forward
Despite recent domestic cuts to spending, many of our customers are supporting urgent operational requirements (UORs) to supply additional, new or modified equipment to our armed forces on active service. We know what that means in terms of pressure on your business and what you expect in turn from your recruitment provider.
The UK defence industry currently generates revenues of more than £22 billion and supports in the region of 275,000 direct and indirect jobs. With nearly £10 billion in export sales, the global market is crucial to this sector.
An increase in regulations affecting defence company employers has meant an increase in demand for experienced security measures and people with associated expertise. With significant experience in the outplacement of military and security service employees, we can help match high-level specialists to help navigate these regulations.
Counter terrorism and surveillance have always had a reputation for utilising the latest in technology, and opportunities within this market continue to support some of the most rapidly areas of electronic engineering.

‘We employed the services of Euro Projects to recruit an electronics engineer to join our product development team. The primary function of this role was to develop our Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) product to improve its application for the defence sector. Our requirements were very specific, not only from a technical perspective but also requiring someone who could fit into our close knit, small team.
Euro Projects delivered a strong shortlist of candidates, headed up with an excellent graduate whose interest in their spare time was developing their own mini UAVs. This really proved that Euro Projects understood our recruitment brief and provided a well-focussed service. I would not hesitate to recommend Euro Projects to other companies that operate in the defence sector or within the wider general engineering sector.’
