Regional recruitment firm, RE Recruitment has recently added expanded with the opening of a new Construction division led by Branch Manager, Mike Pratt.
The team in Worcester will now recruiting for a range of roles across the construction sector including all types of specialists, skilled and unskilled roles. Everything from Site Managers and Quantity Surveyors to Bricklayers, Plumbers, Electricians and Labourers.
Mike said the team felt now was the right time to launch this division in Worcester.
Mike commented: “When I started in the Worcester office, I had supported some existing clients with skilled workers as part of broader recruitment campaigns. People like painters, carpenters, and bricklayers. At the time, we started to build a robust database of skilled workers, but construction wasn’t really part of the plan in the Worcester branch.
At the end of 2021, I noticed a significant increase in the levels of construction in Worcester and the wider area and started to see a sustained increase in ad-hoc requests for tradespeople. We were being approached by local construction companies as they had heard about the quality of candidates we had placed in this sector.
The senior management team and Richard East Chairman of RE Recruitment agreed it was the right move to open a construction department in the Worcester branch and with some planned updates to our website and local networking , we officially opened the new Construction department in late March.
Mike concluded: “I am really excited at how things have already started in this new phase for RE Recruitment and our support for the construction sector.”
