Posted on 16 May 2023 by The Manufacturer

Today, The Manufacturer announces it will be renewing its strategic partnership with global recruitment specialists, Michael Page, after a highly successful first 12 months. 

The multi-channel partnership was launched in May 2022 to address the chronic skills issues faced by the UK manufacturing sector.

The strategic alliance will continue to seek to combat the challenges facing the manufacturing industry from a skills perspective and provide the tools to help it thrive by attracting new talent that taps in to more modern, digitalised ways of working.

Together, The Manufacturer and Michael Page will combine their expertise and resources to bolster the premier industry publication’s market leading news, features, insights and events programmes, while continuing to promote best practice for manufacturing boardrooms and senior management in the manufacturing industry.

As part of this year’s partnership, Michael Page will again proudly sponsor The Manufacturer Top 100 awards that recognise the people that have gone “above and beyond” in their contributions to the UK manufacturing sector. Regular talent focused content from the recruiter will continue to be published on The Manufacturer website, in their print publication and also in their extremely popular digital newsletter. Michael Page will also be again contributing to the panel discussions at this year’s Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit.

Henry Anson, Managing Director, Hennik Research, the publisher of The Manufacturer said: “It’s fantastic to be continuing our work with Michael Page, an organisation who has already played a huge role in helping us address the issue of drawing new, crucial skills to the sector. Together, we hope to keep on shifting the dial on the perception of manufacturing as a long-term, secure, well paid and vibrant sector to work in.”

Matt Devine, Customer Engagement Director (Manufacturing) at Michael Page: “We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with such a respected institution, as the recruitment partner of choice for the manufacturing sector in the UK. With a focus on sustainability, innovation, and the power of humans to drive success, The Manufacturer reflects our own values here at Michael Page. It’s a privilege to be able to continue our work with them on both celebrating and raising the profile of the talent in the manufacturing sector.”
