In a sector with so many niche roles, it pays to use a specialist like us. Someone who knows the concrete difference between asphalt and macadam. And understands that you should never send a BID Manager to do a BIM Manager’s job. Or vice versa.

In their own words

“Martin Veasey Talent Solutions are different to many other recruitment agencies as they provide a very personable service for their prospective candidates. They very much practice what they preach!

When I first met Roheela for my initial interview it felt very much like an interview with the company. She was very knowledgeable about the job role, but also about the business, their culture, and more specifically the management team and their personality profiles in terms of where I could fit into the business. This really helped me prepare for the interview in the correct way, but also gave me an understanding of whether I felt I could fit into the team, which from a candidate’s point of view is very important if you are looking long-term. The level of detail provided about the role was also second to none and the role has lived up to the expectation set out at the start."
