Who we are

About us

Founded in 2013 by Darragh O’Brien and Michael Hegarty, UKR was established with a mission to expand the construction talent pool.

We recruit at all levels across the following disciplines: Construction, Civil Engineering, Mechanical & Electrical, Rail and Utilities. We specialise in Temporary, Contract and Permanent basis and have a proven track record in identifying and placing the best candidates across our chosen disciplines. Our team of experienced recruiters have deep knowledge of their chosen fields and excel at interpreting current trends to map the best route forward.

There’s no such thing as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach at UK Recruiting. We build exceptional relationships with candidates and clients and adapt our solutions to meet their individual needs.

Our strength comes from our ability to adapt quickly to our customers’ needs and the competitive marketplace. We invest heavily in our staff as we believe they are the key to our success and continued growth.

We streamline our systems and procedures with our clients in mind to provide a seamless, fully integrated and professional approach; the reasons why we have continued to be a prominent recruitment agency within the industry.

This allows us to enter projects as a flexible recruitment partner with a tailored approach. We have construction knowledge and delivery skills comparable to far larger organisations, such as our recruitment process which adds value by delivering best construction personnel for our clients. Our dedicated account managers deliver quality candidates on time with a non-confrontational approach.
