As Glu Recruit continue their ‘year of growth’ in 2022, the South Yorkshire based recruitment consultancy are delighted to announce the launch of their new construction division.

Led by specialist recruitment consultant, Oliver Race, who joined Glu earlier in the year, the new department will provide recruitment services to employers across the region who operate in the construction and related industries.

As Glu continues to expand its service offering, the creation of a construction specific division will allow the firm to provide employees on a temporary, permanent and contract basis for a wide range of technical, trades and blue-collar roles.

Oliver Race said: “My background prior to joining Glu Recruit was running a construction recruitment division, so I’m delighted to be able to bring this knowledge and experience into my role here.

“Recruiting in the construction industry is quite different to more traditional white-collar professional roles. It’s a different process as it can often be on a temporary or contract basis, especially on the trades and labour side, so it’s important for us to build up a strong and trustworthy talent pool who we can place in new construction jobs once their existing assignment has finished.

“This means we have a ready-made database of white collar professional and temporary blue-collar trades and labour candidates available to our clients as soon as their next requirement arises.”

Rob Shaw, managing director at Glu Recruit, added: “We’re always looking for new ways to expand and develop the business, and setting up a new division is nothing new having successfully implemented a temporary recruitment desk in recent years which is going from strength to strength.

“Our new division means we are now able to work with businesses in the construction, civil engineering, and fit-out sectors, to name a few, providing a full complement of employees from white collar roles through to skilled trades and labour.

“With a number of preferential agreements already in place, we’re able to offer exclusive access to construction related vacancies across all levels before they reach the open market, meaning our candidates can get a direct line into all the latest opportunities as soon as they become available.”

The new construction division at Glu Recruit is fully operational, so if you are a candidate looking for your next assignment, or an employer looking for qualified and trusted workers, contact Oliver and the team on 0114 321 1873 or
