Recruitment the Right Way

  • Honesty First: Unlike a lot of our competitors, we are committed to ALWAYS give an honest appraisal of the labour we have available.

  • 100% Compliance: We take care of all the details, so you can rest assured that the workers you receive are fully qualified and hold all documents necessary to work on site in the UK.

  • National Coverage: We have successfully supplied contracts all over the UK so no matter where you’re working, we can help.

  • Single Point of Contact: Our experienced consultants will manage your requirements efficiently and meet with you in person to build a solid working relationship.

  • Committed to H&S: We check that all workers we supply hold a current CSCS qualification. We also subscribe to the Phoenix Online and JIB Industrial Information Service, allowing us to verify operative qualifications and certifications.

"Working with Trades on Site has been an easy choice from taking and understanding the initial brief through to selection of candidates, arranging interviews and ‘closing the deal’ – I can honestly say I have never worked with a more thorough Recruitment Agency."

Sean Dundon, Construction Director

Trades on Site has provided me with recruitment services for several years now, successfully identifying the right candidates for positions in a friendly and efficient manner. I would recommend their services to new clients who are looking to recruit the right staff into their business.”

Daniel O Reilly, Contracts Manger, Medium Sized Building Solutions Company

"I was impressed with the industry awareness offered by Trades on Site. From my first telephone conversation, I was confident that my employment needs and skill sets had been taken into account. This ensured that I was put forward for a vacancy within a very short period of time and was successful in my application. The team at Trades on Site were supportive and provided suitable feedback with the Clients two stage interview process, which also included flying to Belfast for the 2nd stage. At all times I felt my best interests were being taken into account and I would recommend them as an agency for anyone looking for suitable employment."
