Latest news and updates - April 2022
Greetings from NDT Resources! We hope you had a good break over the Easter period and are raring to go with batteries fully charged.
To those we haven't reached out to before, I hope you find this of interest, if not, please feel free to unsubscribe below. Otherwise, I hope you will stay the journey...
Whether you're new to us, or are old friends, we're always interested in what you would like to see here, or if you have any comments on the content. We'd love to hear from you.
So, on with this month's newsletter...
I would like to touch on something that's always been the elephant in the room, always present, but rarely discussed openly.
Is this what trying to fill an NDT position normally looks like for you?
Sifting through a ton of CVs that are just not relevant for the role you need to fill
Having to cover the expense of training new employees who don't have all the skills required to fulfil the role.
Spending valuable time trying to work out which applicants have the most appropriate mix of qualifications & experience
Struggling to find temporary workers with the relevant skills & experience to cover holidays or heavy workloads
Wasting even more time interviewing applicants that turn out to not be a good fit for your organisation
Dealing with recruitment agencies who don't have the specialist knowledge required to understand your specific NDT needs
That's frustrating! But, you're not alone.
One of our clients had been looking for the right NDT specialist for nearly two years. We found him two strong candidates in two weeks.
He employed them both!

Trusted by small companies & large global organisations, including Oceaneering - one of the largest NDT employers in the world.
Paul provided a fast, reliable, affordable and highly professional service to me when I was seeking to hire senior advanced NDT specialists to grow my global business. He took time to understand and refine my requirements and play them back in the form of concise written notes - recognizing my time pressures.
Leveraging his contacts, search skills, industry knowledge and decades of proven experience; he took considerable hassle out of the process by sifting, interviewing and shortlisting candidates for Asia and Australia that were so good I ended up hiring more people than I'd planned!
I was particularly grateful for his strong organizational and communication skills throughout the process - he certainly went the extra mile to make my life as easy as possible - including arranging interviews in multiple countries and time-zones.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul and we will certainly be reaching out to him for senior and junior staff in the near future.

My experience of working with Paul and Derek was exceptional. From the initial contact until the completion of the contract negotiations, they consistently worked in the interests of everyone to achieve the best outcome for all involved. They kept me updated with feedback throughout and always respected my circumstances and wishes. Their knowledge and experience of NDT allows them to match the right candidate with the ideal role or organisation. For a reliable, considerate service, with recruiters who genuinely care and understand your requirements, I would recommend NDT Resources Ltd.
Colin Ballingall- UT Technician - Terma Aerostructures
We are very happy and pleased to have both Denise as a permanent position and Colin as a contractor hired by us.
They are both doing an excellent job…
It has been very easy to integrate them on the NDI team…
The period of training was short because of their skills and they were therefore very quickly integrated in the production.
It is a pleasure to have them here and it has been a very good investment for Terma A/S
Per Dahlmann- Production Manager of Terma Aerostructures (Denmark)

Dealing with recruitment agencies used to frustrate the hell out of me!
As a highly-qualified NDT technician myself for many years, I know how frustrating it is when recruiters lack a sufficient knowledge of the complexities and applications of NDT. After all, without that understanding, they'll struggle to know which candidates are best suited to the roles they're recruiting for.
I saw a real need in the industry for an agency with an in-depth knowledge of all major NDT methods, certifications and product technologies, across various industrial sectors.
I established NDT Resources in 2015 to meet that need. I knew, with my experience and vast network, I could efficiently and successfully connect the right candidates with the right roles.

Latest news and updates - February 2022
Greetings from NDT Resources! We are well and truly into the new year now, and it's all systems go here. We're always interested in what you would like to see here, or if you have any comments on the content. We'd love to hear from you.
But before that, I need to get something off my chest...
NDT in a Production Environment
Unlike an aerospace Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) environment or carrying out in-service NDT in other sectors, being a part of an NDT team in an Original Equipment Manufacturer's (OEM) facility you may be (quite often) subject to pressures that shouldn't be a part of your decision making process. You may not feel completely independent.
Latest news and updates - December 2021
It's been a busy few months here, and the countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun. With that in mind, we would like to wish all our clients, candidates, and NDT associates a fantastic festive period. Eat, drink, and be merry!
