FactoryFix reports that tool & die makers are in high demand. Tool and die makers construct precision tools or metal forms, called dies, that are used to cut, shape, and form metal and other materials. They produce jigs and fixtures—devices that hold metal while it is bored, stamped, or drilled—and gauges and other measuring devices.
To become certified tool & die maker, a candidate must pass both a theory exam and a practical exam. A 4-5 year apprenticeship is common. There is currently a labor and skills shortage in the tool and die trade which will impact the future of manufacturing. Like many disciplines, even 4 years, or 8,000 hours, of apprenticeship is not enough to master the trade. This education needs to be followed up by valuable, hands-on experience, and the challenge of continuous learning to keep up with an industry where the processes and materials evolve with new technology and innovation. FactoryFix has direct access to the best qualified tool & die makers.
FactoryFix is a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers. The platform’s purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.
Patrick O’Rahilly, Founder of FactoryFix, explains, “The result is a tremendous time and costs savings when compared to hiring through a traditional staffing agency or job board. Both have their advantages, but staffing firms are expensive, and job boards require a lot of time and effort to sift through unqualified candidates. The FactoryFix platform takes the best of each and combines it into a turn-key hiring solution made exclusively for this industry.
Companies that engage with a subscription are guaranteed qualified workers for their open positions. Some of the most popular jobs on FactoryFix include operator, maintenance, welding, machining, and automation roles. Explore more than 250,000 manufacturing jobs for the most robust job board available today: https://jobs.factoryfix.com.
Few hiring solutions offer quantifiable success rates in matching top talent to positions with the appropriate skill sets. Only through a robust platform that incorporates deeper-level matching can hiring efficiency be measured and maximized.
The results are clear, FactoryFix customers are benefiting from:
- At least 50% reduction in overall cost per hire
- 4 times faster to fill positions than traditional staffing
- 10 times more qualified candidates than posting on a job board
FactoryFix guarantees a total number of hires per year to ensure that customers meet their desired cost-per-hire target. The company recently introduced a 3-directional chat service, TalentText, to further expedite the hiring process. Request a demo.
