Neil Woodfield - Engineering
Recruitment Consultant

Neil’s background before recruitment was Customer Service within an Engineering company. AD-Engineering was his first step into Recruitment in Early 2014 and he has taken this customer service approach rather than the ‘sales’ feel. Neil has gravitated towards Engineering having family members in the industry and he has since worked closely with Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Precision Engineers, Maintenance Engineers, Test and Development, Calibration, Quality Engineers and toolmakers to name a few. All of his clients and candidates are Midlands based.

Neil is a big Arsenal supporter, his young son will also have to endure the pain of following the Gunners. Now the football boots have been hung up, golf is now the biggest hobby. Neil also enjoys all things superhero related and can be a bit of a geek on this subject.
