Search Consultancy Opens New Office in London

Search Consultancy has just opened a new office in London due to the growing demand for trades and labour staff on construction projects in the city region. There will be six new consultant positions that will help recruit more people in the construction and engineering markets, including builds, fit outs, and mechanical and electrical posts. The new team will also target the infrastructure market within the civils and utilities sectors.

“Following what was a year of significant growth for Search in 2017, I am delighted to be starting a new year with the expansion of our construction arm to capitalise on the ever-growing opportunities within the capital,” said Patrick O’Reilly, Director at Search Construction.

The expansion in London is hoped to help grow the business’ partnerships with the existing client base, while generating new opportunities to work on projects throughout the region. At the moment, they are looking for individuals that can join their construction sector, added Patrick.

Search has a strong presence and reputation in the North as well, and it is regarded as the first-tier labour supplier for multiple main contractors. It is already supplying staff to many of the capital’s largest and most prestigious construction and civils projects. The reason why the company has decided to open a new office is the increasing demand for skilled construction labour on the many new development and infrastructure projects in and around the city.

Debbie Caswell, COO for Search said: “Construction recruitment was one of Search’s founding specialisms when the business launched in 1987. What makes our recruitment offering unique across the UK is that many of our consultants have had direct experience working on site in construction, meaning that they are true industry specialists who really understand and appreciate specific project demands and requirements.”

Established in 1987, Search currently employs 700 people in 13 offices across the UK: Aberdeen, Brighton, Crawley, Dundee, Dunfermline, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, and Sheffield. It provides specialist recruitment services across these three markets: Professional Services, Healthcare, IT, Technical and Engineering, Construction, and General and Commercial Staffing.
