Consultancy Opus International is looking to recruit 120 engineers this year – including some nearing the end of their careers.
The firm, which has offices in the UK, North America and Australasia, is keen to boost its headcount and experience in 2015.
Opus is offering flexible working where possible to make its roles more attractive and accessible.
HR director Adrian Clarkson said: “Our experience of staff who work part-time is extremely positive, they are highly valued, empowered and prove to be productive and reliable.
“We’re aware that employers previously haven’t taken flexible working far enough to provide any real benefit, and we’re keen to lead the way with our people-focused approach.
“Our Health and Safety culture ensures that the mental wellbeing of our staff is also a priority and offering this added level of flexibility can be helpful in easing the pressure off busy family lives.”
Clarkson added that staff with decades in the industry were particularly valuable.
“We’re keen to recruit and retain this high level of expertise, and part-time working can be attractive to this group,” he said.
“We need to sell the benefits to tempt people to join or remain with us. We’ve had several engineers with grown up families who have enjoyed short secondments to Opus in New Zealand.
“Our offices across the UK also have much to offer and our teams highly value the experience that these senior engineers bring.”
