Contract Engineering

What is it?

Contract engineering is an industry term often used to describe the contract and contract-to-hire placement of technical talent such as:

  • Engineers – Mechanical, Electrical, Civil-Structural, Software, Quality, Manufacturing, and others
  • Technicians – Field Service, Electro-Mechanical, Test, Quality, Manufacturing, and others
  • Drafter/Designers – Mechanical, Electrical, Civil-Structural, and platform specific like Solidworks, AutoCAD, MicroStation, Revit
  • IT Professionals – Specialized talent for Network/System Admins, Help Desk, Network Security, DevOps
  • Software Developers – Software Engineers, Software QA, using all the modern tech stacks

What are the benefits to my company?

Depending on the circumstances, and your immediate needs, the benefits of using contract engineering can be summarized as follows:

  • It provides a faster way to staff for a critical project, rather than going through the formal steps of hiring a full-time/perm employee
  • Gives your team the flexibility to scale up or down depending on your seasonal needs, or industry growth spurts
  • Can be a great way to try out new employees to make sure they fit with your company culture and business goals

I found Chris via Google Search. We needed to source and hire quality candidates and he has delivered! He is very knowledgeable about the job market and the best approach finding qualified, desirable candidates. He created a solution for our company and delivered results.

Our experience with Expect Technical Staffing has been nothing but pleasant. Chris delivered quality and professional candidates in a timely manner. His urgency with every matter does not go unnoticed. I highly recommend this staffing agency to anyone looking for assistance in their onboarding process.

Autonomous Driving Tech Start Up

Chris introduced great candidates to our company. The process is professional and efficient.

Autonomous Driving Tech Start Up

We enlisted the services of Expect Technical Staffing after a key contributor left our team. We were concerned about finding a candidate with the skillset required to be successful in this position. We discussed our concerns about finding the right skill set and personality to fit the role and our company. Within the first few weeks of enlisting Chris’s services we had several well qualified candidates. We were able to upgrade the skill set in the position with one of the candidates that Chris brought to us. We will defiantly use Expect Technical Staffing in the future for any technical staffing needs.

Chris from Expect Technical Staffing was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was professional, communicated promptly and courteously, responded honestly to our questions and concerns and more importantly did NOT send us unqualified candidates to review/interview. Chris carefully vetted and only sent candidate resumes which fit our specific criteria (senior level engineer with technical expertise/experience in public works projects). Chris definitely delivered! I highly recommend Chris and Expect Technical Staffing and would absolutely work with him and and his firm in the future for our staffing needs.

Contracts and Accounting Manager
Civil Engineering Firm

Our company is a niche civil / structural engineering firm with an office in Colorado. Our best engineer left unexpectedly and we had a big project deadline coming up. EXPECT found us a contractor that started immediately and allowed us to continue moving forward. We loved his candidate so much that last week we made him a full-time employee offer, and he accepted. Thank you EXPECT for helping us!

Civil/Structural Engineering Firm

We had a need for some Engineers at our company, and Expect Technical Staffing helped us not only source some wonderful candidates, but also provided us with a superb service experience. We will definitely be using Expect Technical Staffing for all our future hiring needs.

Director of Human Resources
Structural Engineering Firm

When using Expect Technical Staffing, Chris Specht proved to be a successful and professional recruiter. He listened to our company’s needs and willingly worked to adjust his search to find the right person for the job. The level and quality of communication throughout the process was perfect.

Human Resources Manager
Civil Engineering Consultancy

We began working with Chris at Expect Technical Staffing in March, 2018. We had several openings for technical people to join our Software team and this is an area where candidates are quite scarce. Chris came to our office to meet with our team and receive the additional job specifications and get to know the company. Chris has been able to identify several great candidates for us to review. He does a good job at vetting candidates based on our criteria and tweaks things when we give additional feedback. I appreciate that Chris really researches the candidates and doesn’t just send over 100 resumes which is what some recruiters do (and as a result I don’t work with them). After going through an extensive interview process we were able to make offers to several of the candidate’s Chris sent to us. We still have several other candidates from Chris in our pipeline and suspect we’ll have more offers soon and be able to close the job requisitions. Chris is very easy to work with, does follow up when appropriate but is not overly aggressive which I greatly appreciate. His fees are very reasonable as well. I enjoy working with Chris and highly recommend him to any firm looking for technical hires.
