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

    The 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.

    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 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.
