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.

We manage each search in a considered manner, managing the process in a sensitive and effective way.

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

  • 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.

  • Victoria Deal – Group Head of Recruitment – Countryside Properties

    We have partnered with Fawkes & Reece for a number of years now, and watching our relationship blossom over the last few years in particular has been really inspiring to me. Our relationship started in our Northern businesses, where they remain our “go to” partner but we have expanded significantly in recent times across the Midlands and the South - to now being one of the largest suppliers to Countryside, having provided solutions in all areas of our business. Fawkes & Reece are not only trusted advisors to Countryside with regards to the recruitment market, but also on best practice and process, having introduced us to our fantastic vendor management system and led a pilot on our behalf whilst we adjusted our process internally. They have supported with the introduction of invaluable team members to both my team and the wider business, and are highly regarded by Hiring Managers across the Group. The particular support, communication and attention afforded to us by Kal, Chelsey, John & Ray has been exceptional, and I feel completely confident that on the rare occasion I have any concerns or issues, they are quickly overcome and alleviated. Fawkes & Reece are a truly relationship focused business who pride themselves in staying well connected to me and my team, as well as to our Hiring Managers and we would be at a loss without their support. Here’s to many more positive years!

This is all with the combined aim of helping Telford Homes deliver a professional recruitment experience for candidates.

  • Simon Hunt – Winvic

    We were introduced to Fawkes and Reece through a longstanding recruitment industry contact who had joined their senior team. Keeley Davis was appointed to look after our business requirements and needs, she immediately took the time to understand our business, our culture, and our values. It wasn’t a case of just firing a CV at us and hoping it sticks. Our people are our greatest asset, so it was important the Fawkes and Reece team understood the importance of this to us!

  • David Ward – Managing Director – Winvic

    Finding good candidates is always difficult, finding quality candidates in a busy market is a real challenge. We engaged with Fawkes and Reece to find candidates to fill some key positions, that a recent restructuring and increase in workload had generated. This required the expertise of someone who not only had access to potential candidates but could do the background work to ensure that the candidates would fit with Winvic and Winvic would fit with them. We had some quality candidates to interview and following this, the difficult decision of which ones not to make an offer too. That is only part of the journey and Fawkes and Reece were very thorough on the follow ups and feedback and helping turn an offer into the point where someone is ready to join the company. We are working with them on further positions and their understanding of our business is the key to our successful relationship.

  • Nick Oddy – Managing Director – ISG Agility

We employ near on 1000 people and are very pleased to say that Fawkes & Reece are our first port of call for our staff appointments. We are very pleased to have such a partner; staff is one of the biggest challenges we have as an industry and so we are pleased to have a partner like Fawkes & Reece.

  • Kingsley Thornton - Director - Domis Construction

    We have partnered with Fawkes & Reece for a number of years now. Their approach has always been honest, transparent, and factual, which has helped us to source employees who have gone on to have very successful careers with us. In a very competitive marketplace, it is difficult to find a recruitment specialist that you truly believe shares your core values. With Fawkes & Reece we have not only found a recruitment business that shares these values but, helps us to continue to achieve them. We have always prided ourselves on building long standing relationships with our key partners and we would consider Fawkes & Reece to be part of that select group and look forward to continuing to develop our business further with the support of Fawkes & Reece.

    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!

    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.

    The labour market across all levels including blue and white-collar professions is consistently competitive, and we know that the demand for skillsets have been at an all-time high across the industry. By partnering with Fawkes & Reece we have the confidence that when we have requirements across our project teams, we will receive a strong calibre of profiles, who have been properly informed of our business and our projects and are motivated to become part of our team. In Chelsey, we have a true account manager, who with the support of her team, has impressed us with their approach and overall ability to deliver consistently for us. We truly value our partnership with Fawkes & Reece and look forward to continuing it, long into the future.

  • 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.
