Established in 2001 Fawkes & Reece was launched with a clear vision of becoming a market leading recruiter across construction, civil engineering and the built environment.
The business has at all times relied upon traditional values throughout its existence. We understand that hard work and commitment is appreciated by everyone in our sector; be they clients or candidates. We are committed to delivering a first class recruitment service and adding value as a supplier.
We feel that consistency, loyalty from our staff and the loyalty that we, as a business demonstrate to our clients and candidates has helped us to be recognised for having our own style, approach and individuality.
As we find ourselves in a highly competitive industry and one that we are perfectly built for, an important part of our DNA is to care. Care about the level of service we provide, care about our corporate responsibilities and care about securing the right outcome for the parties we work with.
Today our values are upheld by a workforce of over 70 members of staff across 2 offices, who share in what the business believes in and stands for. With the benefit of core values, Fawkes & Reece has become the chosen and preferred recruitment partner to the very best names in the construction, engineering and built sectors.
In 2019 Alltek became part of the Fawkes & Reece Group and in doing so provided great depth and support both in the South and South West, but equally strengthening our delivery capability in the Civil Engineering sector. With the benefit of core values, the Fawkes & Reece Group has become the chosen and preferred recruitment partner to the very best names in the construction, civil engineering and built sectors.
Our staff benefit from the resources we invest in their training and support towards qualifications, whilst working with the very best client base in the industry. Our clients in turn benefit from working with a recruitment partner who is professional and appreciates the importance of consistent delivery.
Our candidates benefit from choice as well as our strength and depth in the regions that they live and work and our expertise within the market that is approached in a consistent and collaborative way.
