Contract and Contingency Labour

We invest significantly in the multi-skilling of our workforce. Furthermore, our training partners allow us to establish career development plans where our regular pool of specialist operatives can undertake additional training across a wide range of disciplines.

We have a wide range of contract roles across the UK on notable projects, as well as opportunities on many small minor works. The nature of the temporary market means that requirements are coming in at all times so the best way to hear about these is to register with us as well as following us on Facebook and Linked In.

Permanent Recruitment

Helping you find the job you want is one our key goals. As a traditional recruiter in the era of social media, we don’t just advertise jobs. We want to get know and build relationships with you so that we can put not only you, but ourselves in the best position to help you find your next job, and offer that next important step in your career. We work closely with you to find out all about your skills, experience and career aspirations so we can make sure you’re placed in the right company that will enhance your career in the long-term.

When you work with us, you can trust that we are on hand to support you at every step of the way. Our experienced consultants will make sure they understand exactly what you are looking for and will always give you good, honest advice about your career. They will also help you improve your CV if needed, and help you prepare for interviews ensuring you leave the best impression possible. We will never send out your CV without your permission & you will always be provided with clear and constructive feedback.


When committing to temporary contracts knowing that you’ll be paid accurately and on time is always a key concern.

Your Online Reputation

Being mindful of your online reputation has never been more crucial. Potential employers are increasingly researching candidates online.

Interview Technique

The interview process varies from one potential employer to the next, therefore preparation, planning and research are absolutely crucial.
