Engineering Workforce Solutions | Aerospace Recruitment | Kelly Services


The UK’s aerospace industry is the second largest in the world, employing over 120,000 people directly with an annual turnover of around £20 billion. 

Despite offering higher than average national salaries, the aerospace engineering sector continues to suffer ongoing skills shortages and attracting and retaining graduates is getting harder, as it is across all engineering disciplines. 

At Kelly Engineering Resources we work in partnership with our clients to identify the best candidates from our talent pool for their contract, temporary and permanent recruitment needs. Our experience spans every vital aerospace discipline, whether structural, landing gear, primary and secondary flight controls, aerodynamics, propulsion or power systems. 

Working with companies on a global scale through our network of international offices, our team of aerospace experts has built relationships with key organisations that service both the military and civilian sectors.

  • FAI Engineers 
  • FPGA and Electronics Engineers  
  • Manufacturing Engineers (Six Sigma) 
  • Quality Engineers (AS9100, ISO:9000)
