Steve Bennett has been specialising in recruiting for the TIC, or testing inspection and certification, sector since 2012. A ‘hidden’ and growing sector, which, by some estimates, could be worth over $250 billion globally by 2024.

Why ‘hidden’? Well, whilst many people have heard of ISO9001 (or BS5750 for the more mature readers) and have seen a CE mark on the back of their toaster, people are often unaware of how much the testing inspection and certification industry affects everyone on a daily basis, from food safety, to transport, to the beds we sleep in.

And it’s only going to grow. Testing Inspection and Certification protects us as individuals and helps the multitude of companies and organisations that implement standards or test products to bring about constant improvements and efficiencies.
