Fawkes & Reece provide staffing and recruitment services to the leading organisations within the built environment, covering the whole of the UK.

Preferred Recruitment Suppliers to a Dedicated Construction & Rail Client Base

We manage the recruitment programmes as both a partner and sole supplier for a portfolio of the most respected and leading construction and rail companies within the UK. As a preferred supplier we appoint a dedicated and professional team to manage the delivery of a high quality service. This is led by one of our experienced Account Managers who maintains communication, ensuring all stakeholders are on the same page and that we keep an eye on detail, order of priority and quality.

Specialists in Search & Selection

We are proven search specialists. Search in this instance means research, market intelligence, profiling and approach. As search specialists we manage exclusive vacancies from key, hard to fill roles to all levels of director and board appointments and we have a track record for successful delivery. We manage each search in a considered manner, managing the process in a sensitive and effective way.

Professional Suppliers for Freelance and Interim Construction Placements

Fawkes & Reece work closely with a database of professional candidates who support our clients for blue collar and interim construction placements. Working in collaboration with our freelance candidates we are able to supply all levels of professionals on either an hourly, daily or weekly rate. Our candidates are reference checked, fully compliant and looked after by a specialist Contracts and Compliance Team and Payroll Managers.

At Fawkes & Reece we operate by our 5 core values:

Ambition Fawkes-Reece-symbol Invest Fawkes-Reece-symbol Care Fawkes-Reece-symbol Deliver Fawkes-Reece-symbol Succeed

These values are integral in enabling us to build careers for our candidates as well as our own staff and in helping our clients achieve their staffing and recruitment goals.

We work with a select client base that reflects the top 100 companies in each technical sector we work in and we have staff who are well trained, REC qualified and well resourced.

The Senior Management Team are all hands on and are made up of industry experts and individuals who are all committed to these values of Fawkes & Reece.

  • Ian Cheung - Managing Director - Sir Robert McAlpine

    By way of encouragement and support, I thought you should know that in the South East, we have found you and your team to be very responsive and we feel you treat our needs as a real priority.

    On the whole, we also feel your recruitment team makes an effort to screen candidates for their suitability for roles and manages the recruitment process very well.

    Thank you for your support and we look forward to our continuing positive working relationship.

  • Grant Findlay - Business Development Director - Sir Robert McAlpine

    I have been working with Fawkes and Reece for a number of years recruiting all levels and types of job roles for Sir Robert McAlpine and they have provided an excellent standard of service throughout. They have developed a real understanding of our business and the values that underpin how we work.
    The recruitment consultants have consistently provided high quality CVs. And they work very hard to get us the right candidates for the roles under some tight deadlines.
    What sets them apart from the rest is their loyalty and ability to build relationships; I trust their judgement, their honesty and their appraisal of candidates. I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.

  • Rachael Smith - Regional HR Manager London & SE Region - Sir Robert McAlpine

    I'd just like to email you with some statistical analysis I have done in the last week, it shows you know the business, you scrutinise candidates thoroughly before they even get to us and that you select the right people for us for the right reasons.

    It does not go unnoticed or appreciated the hard work you put in and how well things are working in the partnership.

  • Charlotte Lafferty - HR Operations and Recruitment Manager – Multiplex

    I have worked closely with the team at Fawkes and Reece for the last 12 months. They are passionate about our business and work hard to ensure that we get the best service. In addition to supporting our ability to identify and select the best construction talent, they provide the HR team with additional market information, recruitment trends and industry changes. For me, their focus on adding value over just transactional placements means that they’re building long term relationships within the business which is key in order to drive the focus we have on recruiting people that match our culture. Having personally worked with Ray and Graeme on senior job roles, their approach is thorough and balanced whilst ensuring that the candidate experience is paramount; we feel supported through the process through regular contact and real insight into the individuals we’re meeting.

  • James Hindes - Managing Director - Kier

    Fawkes & Reece do what is says on the tin; they spend valuable time understanding the culture & values of your business and then fill your resource needs with high calibre staff, right first time …. Avoiding numerous interviews. In addition I’ve found Fawkes & Reece's response time and capability to be ahead of the rest!

  • Phil Pringle - Managing Director - Construction - McLaren Group

They have got to know our business very well and in doing so continue to assist us in making key and strategic appointments for jobs at all levels of seniority. They add significant value to our recruitment programme and have become a valued partner to the business.

  • Brian Ormiston - Head of Sustainability and Health & Safety - St James Group

    Fawkes and Reece, have through the commitment of a dedicated account manager helped us to meet our recruiting needs. The quality of candidates provided have been first class.

  • Chris Brooks - Bid Director - Paragon

    Fawkes & Reece – all of the candidates you have put forward have been excellent and fitted our sometimes exacting requirements.
    Because of the attention to detail we have successfully recruited four estimators and probably one senior bid manager in the last three months.
    Thank you once again.

  • Chris Wallace - Operations Director - Lovell

    I would like to personally say it has been a great experience working with Fawkes & Reece over the last 18 months.
    Their personable approach along with a desire to really understand what the business needs are is clear to see. I, along with my team have built up a great rapport with our account manager and a general trust in the quality candidates he puts across to us.
    They have successfully placed 19 candidates into the business over the last 18 months and this is down to their sheer tenacity and hard work to ensure that Fawkes & Reece remain our number 1 supplier in London.

  • Kevin Austin - Head of Building Services - Kier Construction

    Fawkes and Reece have over the past few years worked closely with me to understand my recruitment needs and have ensured that candidates they put forward for the roles I am recruiting for fit the role profile in respect of character and technical capabilities.

    I have always found their staff to be professional in their approach and understanding of my needs as well as a good sounding board for understanding the market conditions when it comes to setting package levels.

  • John O'Grady - Divisional Commercial Director - VolkerFitzpatrick Contractors

    I have worked with Fawkes and Reece for many years now for our recruitment needs. They are a business who take time to know the client they are working with and understand the type of candidate who will fit in with the job, organisation and culture. I have always thought of them as very professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. When it comes to recruitment they work across all departments and fill roles through good communication, quality candidate submittals and excellent industry knowledge. We have employed numerous candidates through Fawkes and Reece and we will continue to use them across all departments. I fully recommend their services.
