Engineering client case study

DOUGLAS

"GCS HAVE RESPONDED PROMPTLY TO OUR REQUIREMENTS FOR AUTOMATION PROFESSIONALS WITH SPECIALIST SKILLS AND HAVE PROVIDED EXCELLENT CONTRACT ENGINEERS."


The company

Douglas Control & Automation has delivered automation, information technology / MES and safety solutions since 1977. Their customers cover the entire manufacturing and utilities sectors and include pharmaceutical, biotech, chemical, semiconductor, food and beverage, mining, transport and water treatment industries.

The challenge

With a current shortage in the UK for PCS7 engineers, Douglas Controls approached GCS to expand its project team working on a large industrial project based in the South East of England. 


The solution

GCS Engineering’s established position and reputation in the marketplace meant that through LinkedIn, one of the two required candidates proactively approached GCS directly for employment opportunities. The other candidate was located on the GCS database – a database that has in excess of 70,000 engineering candidates registered. Both candidates successfully passed the 1 stage interview process and started on the project immediately.  


They said

“Over the past year GCS have responded promptly to our requirements for automation professionals with specialist skills and have provided excellent contract engineers. Any issues have been address by them quickly and effectively."
