​Our aim at Omega is always to strive for the best outcomes for our clients and candidates. Whether that’s finding the perfect job role, hiring a new employee that ticks all the boxes, or forming a relationship that lasts the test of time where both parties can succeed together. We’re proud of our heritage as a company, but also our historical location we call home.

It all started from rather basic beginnings. Our foundations began in 1998 where friends Ray, Alan and James had the ambition to open a reputable engineering recruitment business in Gloucestershire. Their dream has certainly escalated over the past 24 years, from two desks, a computer and a fax machine, to a team of over 100 staff covering multiple UK locations and a growing team based in Porto, Portugal. In 2018 Omega was acquired by Staffline Group which meant we could widen our South West presence and in-crease the market share in engineering and manufacturing, staying true to our roots, whilst opening new doors to sectors within the group.

The South West in particular is known for excellence in these divisions. You’re spoilt for choice finding the work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel across the region, known as "one of the most ingenious and prolific figures in engineering history,” with iconic feats such as the Clifton Suspension Bridge. There is also the Wotton-Under-Edge based company Renishaw who has an excellent reputation as one of the world’s leading engineering and scientific technology companies who currently have over 5,000 employees across 37 countries. Did you also know that Bristol is home to some of the UK’s largest aerospace businesses with international companies such as Airbus, BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce and Boeing operating in the area? The South West certainly loves to shout about our accolades and showcase them at events such as the Royal International Air Tattoo in Gloucestershire, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and the many nearby museums that treasure how much technology has soared through the decades.

As an award-winning company that works on a local, national and international scale, we’re fortunate to have close links to London with Paddington Station just an hour and a half away, as well as Bristol and Birmingham Air-port a stone's throw away opening doors to international flight. With our headquarters in Stonehouse, we’re just a hop in the car to Stroud, Gloucester and the M5 which takes us to Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and beyond.

Our journey also guarantees that we’ll meet fantastic clients and candidates and be part of their adventure in finding new talent and opportunities. Whether that’s for an executive search, permanent, contract, temporary or managed service programmes. We value ourselves on providing modern and innovative solutions to deliver fast and effective results using an annual in-vestment of £200,000 in new recruitment and marketing technologies. We’re also responsive to our client’s needs by finding the best talent with a quick turnaround whilst providing support and development of large projects and assignments. Plus, our expertise lies in sourcing and showcasing great candidates who complement our clients to be part of their leading workforce. Above all, we have respect for each other at all levels and believe in transparency, honesty and integrity.

Our strong reputation across the industry means that we have a loyal customer base who come to us time and time again for results. With outstanding reviews across the board when recruiting in the areas of Engineering, Auto-motive, Oil & Gas, Aerospace & Defence, Scientific, Manufacturing & Logistics and who better to come to but Omega.
