Construction is currently the UK’s biggest industry with major project plans in place and employment is anticipated to reach 2.6 million by 2016. Labour demands cover an extensive diversity of activities, such as bricklaying, construction of foundations, steel election and subsurface work and design.
The industry is a major contributor to building completion and finishing in the residential, commercial, public, infrastructure and industrial markets.
Our construction, trade and labour division has been a leading supplier of blue and white collar workers for over 20 years. Our nationwide coverage across seven major regions and high street locations, enable us to supply some of the major companies in the UK and equally accommodate the needs of small businesses.
Our breadth of experience spans across all types of construction sectors, including: commercial, residential, road, railway as well as bridge and tunnel projects. Our national candidate database covers a wide spectrum of labour requirements such as demolition operatives, scaffold labourers, electricians and shuttering joiners.
We blend our local knowledge with industry experience to source the right people at the right time. Our consultants follow an in depth recruitment process, with particular focus on compliance checks within this sector. Our specialised trade and labour consultants appreciate the perpetuating necessity for reliable and efficient labourers and therefore regularly communicate with candidates to establish a partnership of trust.
