Our Story

Back in 2011, we started JBS Recruitment, primarily to serve the construction and engineering industries, with a clear vision to get the balance right between delivering great results for our clients and living our core values of honest and transparent representation. We were thrown into the deep end, when, shortly after opening, we were asked to supply emergency resource to Heathrow Airport. Never one to back down from a challenge, we drew on our network, great systems and processes, and achieved the goal… and now, we are resource partners to six UK airports!

It was challenging, but we believed we could do things in a new way. We have an approach to resourcing that is a blend of strong values, great systems and processes, and a focus on providing an unrivalled candidate and client experience. This has translated into exceptional results, built the trust and confidence in our business and created longer-term relationships and partnerships, with the clients and candidates we serve.

Today, our business has grown, and alongside our aviation work, we support blue chip, public sector and SME businesses in the areas of construction, logistics, facilities management, industrial, mechanical and electrical and civil engineering.

Powered by Your Success

After, seven years, nothing is more important to us than ensuring our candidates are in the right role and feel supported every step of the way. We recognise our future is powered by their success!

In the early stages, this means that if we think you are suitable for a role, we will provide additional coaching, support and guidance, so you don’t miss out on opportunities that you are otherwise perfect for.

We have a track record of going out of our way to find follow-on opportunities for our existing candidates when their contracts come to an end, and once we have made a commitment to a candidate, we do everything we can to deliver on our promise to them.
