Recruitment is only one part of the service offered by ASC. Consultation is offered on interview techniques, skills and psychometric testing/benchmarking, remuneration packages, recent and forthcoming changes to employment law and legislations.

Consultancy/Analysis Jobs

Consultancy is a broadly used term across business and industry and is a term used to describe a professional or organisation providing expert advice in a particular area.

Business Analysis

The role of Business Analyst has evolved from someone who was a part of the business operation and worked with Information Technology to improve the quality of the products and services being delivered by the IT organisation to someone who apart from gathering Business Requirements, also assists in Integration and Acceptance Testing, supports the development of training and implementation material, participates in the implementation and provides post-implementation support.

Engineering Analysis

Engineering analysis involves the application of scientific analytic principles and processes to reveal the properties and state of the system, device or mechanism under study.

Controls and Automation Jobs

Control engineering or Control systems engineering is the engineering disciplines that applies control theory to design systems with predictable behaviours.

Modern day control engineering (also called control systems engineering) is a relatively new field of study that gained significant attention during the 20th century with the advancement in technology. It can be broadly defined as practical application of control theory. Control engineering has an essential role in a wider range of control systems, from simple household washing machines to high-performance F-16 fighter aircraft.

Automation is the use of control systems and information technologies to reduce the need for human work in the production of goods and services.

Automation is now often applied primarily to increase quality in the manufacturing process, where automation can increase quality substantially.

Another major shift in automation is the increased demand for flexibility and convertibility in manufacturing processes. Manufacturers are increasingly demanding the ability to easily switch from manufacturing Product A to manufacturing Product B without the need to completely rebuild the production lines.

Maintenance, Service and Installation Jobs

Manufacturing and Production Jobs


Manufacturing is the use of machines, tools and labour to produce goods for use or sale. The term may refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high tech, but is most commonly applied to industrial production, in which raw materials are transformed into finished goods on a large scale.

Production Engineering

Production engineering encompasses castings, joining processes, metal cutting and tool design, metrology, machine tools, machining systems, automation, jigs and fixtures and die and mould design. Production engineering overlaps substantially with manufacturing engineering and industrial engineering.

Lean Manufacturing

Lean Manufacturing or lean production, often simply “lean” is a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful and thus a target for elimination.

Project Managaement/Project Engineering Jobs

Project Management Jobs

Project Management is the discipline of planning, organising, securing and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives.

Project Engineering Jobs

A Project Engineer performs work that crosses the boundaries between engineering and project management, leading the technical workers who contribute to the building of structures or products

Visit our website to see the range of available jobs in the project management and engineering sector.

Quality/Testing/Inspection Jobs

Quality Engineering

The core function of a Quality Engineer is to evaluate the quality assurance of processes and products and to recommend the revision of specifications when indicated.

Test Engineering

A hardware test engineer is a professional who determines how to create a process that would test a particular product in manufacturing, quality assurance or related area like RMA department, in order to assure that the product meets applicable specifications.


An inspection is, most generally, an organised examination or formal evaluation exercise. It involves the measurements, test and gauges applied to certain characteristics in regard to an object or activity.
