Permanent & Contract Recruitment for Manufacturing Professionals
"It takes experience and intuition to detect what clients want while anticipating what they need. That's the Shanklin difference."

For over 10 years, she worked as an engineer in design, applications and sales roles in the United States and in Europe for firms including Babcock & Wilcox, ABB and Caterpillar.
For the past 15 years, her practical, real-world engineering experience has driven our successful results, providing genuine insights into the complexities of engineering and manufacturing organizations while building strong connections with candidates.
Joy is a leader and active participant in numerous industry-related organizations and affiliate-based networks including The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), NACE (The Corrosion Society) and the Top Echelon Network.

When you’re in the business of people, there is little margin for error. Our unique, 5-step elimination process is designed to deliver only the most qualified candidates. The rigor of this process increases the likelihood of productive placements.
We also maintain a strong online presence in the executive job site arena and broker candidates through an extensive recruitment network as a result of our affiliations with select industry-related organizations like The Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
Our goal is simple: provide the necessary resistance to eliminate mismatches. That means adhering strictly to our preset criteria and qualifying questions without bias.
- It allows us to maintain a trusted – yet arbitrary – presence with which the new employee can talk
- It provides an early detection system should issues arise that would normally go unnoticed
