Sourced a niche Embedded Software Engineer skillset

Sourced a niche Embedded Software Engineer skillset


In 2023 our client identified a skills gap during an extremely busy time when demand for the company’s services was rapidly increasing. The company was in immediate need of an Embedded Software Engineer.  


The client was struggling to recruit for this niche skill – this skillset is in high demand and faces a skills gap. They had been unsuccessful with the recruitment partner they had initially used to fill the position, who had delivered just one candidate who had withdrawn. 


Corecom put its established Corecom process into place and sourced candidates from its existing candidate pool. This process involved: 

  • Understanding the company, the background, and future growth plans 
  • Taking an in-depth job specification, including relevant technology skills and knowledge requirements 
  • Selecting trusted and talented contractors that matched the brief 
  • Matched the client and candidate requirements perfectly  

This resulted in the prompt placement of a contract Embedded Software Engineer, leading to a long-term contract arrangement. Corecom’s technology contract recruitment support removed the element of stress from the entire project for our client, as well as the recruitment process.
