Semiconductor search and selection

Why Delve?

Semiconductors are foundational to many aspects of modern life, from data centres and smart homes to high speed networks and the automotive sector. Semiconductor materials are indispensable in electronics and are used to manufacture computer chips in everything from washing machines to airliners. Given this growing demand, it will come as no surprise that the semiconductor manufacturing industry is projected to double in size in the next five years and to achieve a value of in excess of $800 billion by 2024.

One of the key aspects of this growth will without question be the hiring, retention and development of key employees and team members. This is where we have been able to perform a crucial role for growing businesses involved in semiconductor design, semiconductor manufacturing and outsourced semiconductor assembly and test.

Semiconductor case studies 

Case study:
EG Electronics

EG Electronics felt that they had little experience of working on an international basis and that their existing networks were insufficient, so they wanted to engage Delve in order to reach the best candidates in the local markets where they were looking. 


Case study:

TSMC were seeking niche technical and senior level candidates in Europe. They engaged Delve to support their search as although an extremely attractive leadership role for many in the industry, few have the relevant technical background combined with very high level of responsibility and professional network.

Case study:

Utac were seeking to appoint a new Sales Director but were struggling to find suitable candidates due to various challenges. Delve were engaged on a exclusive basis on this project, being given two months to find a suitable candidate.
