Search Consultancy expands to London

Search Consultancy has opened a new office in London to meet the growing demand for trades and labour staff on construction projects in the city region.

Six new consultant positions will be created at the Search Construction West London offices to recruit across a range of trades and labour in the construction and civil engineering markets, including new builds, fit outs and mechanical and electrical posts. The team will also be targeting the growing infrastructure market within the civils and utilities sectors.

With a strong presence and reputation across the North, Search is also widely regarded as the first-tier labour supplier for multiple main contractors and already supplies staff to many of the capital’s largest and most prestigious construction and civils projects. The decision to launch a dedicated London office this year has been driven by a marked increase in demand for skilled construction labour on the many new development and infrastructure projects in and around the city.

Patrick O’Reilly, Director at Search Construction, said: “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.”

“In expanding to London, we hope to continue to grow our partnerships with our existing client base, as well as generating new business by tapping into the large number of development projects throughout the region. We’re now actively looking for individuals with direct experience within the construction sector to join us on this journey.”

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. “

The new Search Construction London office launch follows a major period of growth for Search in 2017, which saw the nationwide firm grow its client base to over 3,300+ and staff numbers to over 700 at its 13 offices around the UK.
