A year after launching we started to provide temporary recruitment services within the Local Government markets across London.

We have now been appointed the lead supplier within a master vendor to 16 MSTAR customers - a massive achievement that we are very proud of.

The combination of Infrastructure Engineering Recruitment and Operational Management Recruitment, fulfils our founding market offering to be focused on critical project resourcing. Hence our name. "Critical Project Resourcing". Therefore should you need an Engineer, Designer, HR or Finance temporary worker we can add value to the recruitment process in equal measure.
