What are the Market Conditions
The performance of the  recruitment industry is a good indicator of how certain sectors and markets are doing.  The construction industry is possibly one of  the most directly effected sectors by the state of the general economy.
We are pleased to say that although there is still a long way to go with the recovery process over the last 12 months we have seen a significant increase in the level of  jobs available. We have noticed an increase in the demand for a flexible work force by means of an increase in the demand for freelance staff which  reflects the lack of long term confidence  certain employers face.

As well as an increase in contract jobs significant projects such as Crossrail and the Thames Estuary Programme have given London and the South East a much needed boost in permanent job opportunities.

We have made every effort to follow trends and diversify our business accordingly and  we are pleased to see further promising signs in the renewable energy and other environmental sectors.

We welcome any enquiry from a client or job seeker about the market in general or any specific opportunities listed on our website.
