Specialist technical recruitment
Manufacturers in the FMCG, Pharmaceutical and Industrial space are seeing more resources invested into Systems & Quality divisions of their business and as a result, Six Degrees has followed suit with specialist recruitment services. Understanding the importance of this in-depth technical knowledge combined with the stakeholder engagement qualities to communicate effectively with overseas suppliers/buyers, contract manufacturers and regulatory bodies is of the utmost importance and can make the difference when it comes to mitigating risk.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
When it comes to new product development and design, R&D teams need to develop their capabilities not only in identifying market trends and ways to diversify, but re-formulation and speed to market are also important contributing factors.
