Our Story

With over 30 years’ experience in recruiting both temporary and permanent staff, and relationships built throughout this time within the Trades and M&E industries,  we are very keen to ensure the high standards and expectations are met each time we are asked to provide our services.

We pride ourselves on the strength of our relationships with candidates who we have used over and over again and we know who are likely to be fit for purpose. We don’t just check a reference, we generally move people from one of our own projects to ensure continuity and quality of service and our clients recognise the benefit of this. In addition to this, we have very good relationships with our candidates who know they will be placed in jobs relevant to them. They will not be talked into taking a job – they will accept a job on the basis it has been discussed clearly.

Our Mission

The TwentyOne Group is committed to providing the best industry specific recruitment service of both temporary and permanent candidates to all disciplines within the construction, engineering and technical markets.

We are regarded as a trusted partner to multiple businesses and to everyone within our candidate network. Our business at its core will always be done in an honest, transparent and ethical manor, and we are extremely proud to be known as a living wage recruitment partner. Our network of exceptional contacts within our industries have been developed over a number of years, which has allowed us to fully learn and understand the methods required to be successful at what we do. We also want to be the recruitment company of choice for consultants looking for a company that promises to offer you the most rewarding and financially attractive career out there in the industry today.

Trades & M&E

As part of our commitment to our candidates we always ensure that the rates we offer are market leading and the terms are right for them. We never engage in a contract whereby we enter a “race to the bottom” on rates to secure the business as this never works out for any party long term. Talk to us today about how we can offer you a level of service that allows you to get the job done right every time. We are a cost effective solution at finding contract staff who we ensure are fit for purpose. We are also a living wage employer ensuring that everyone working for us receives at least the national living wage.
