Over 97% of our work is repeat business and our Clients come back to us time and time again for our honest and straightforward approach and ability to deliver qualified and experienced people for projects or permanent construction roles.

Working with some of the most respected construction companies and residential developers across London, the South East and the rest of the UK. We have helped them reach their business goals by recruiting the right individuals whether that is an enthusiastic Assistant setting out on their career or a high level Director influencing the direction of the company.

A team of experienced consultants run our freelance division who are experts at placing people in temporary roles. Clients are increasingly relying on freelancers for many reasons. They may need people to work on a project at short notice, or they do not have the authority to recruit a permanent member of staff at that time. They may need holiday cover or people to fill an unexpected resignation or just extra staff to finish a difficult project on a tight deadline. Some clients prefer the flexibility of employing freelance/contract staff for assignments running from a week to a year, or on a trial basis before permanent employment.

We have a large network of high quality freelance and contract staff who offer fast and flexible solutions to meet our clients’ most pressing resourcing challenges.

A large number of freelancers have worked for PFS Recruit previously with a track record of successfully delivering for our clients. Our freelance candidates are treated in the same way as permanent candidates, with rigorous interviews, checks and referencing.


A team of highly experienced consultants and administration staff run our permanent division. Expert at finding the most talented and qualified construction candidates in the market, they work closely with clients advising when great candidates become available, even if clients don’t have a specific resourcing need at that time.

As well as our large database, we also source candidates from client referrals and industry contacts. Every candidate is interviewed personally, so we can really understand what their level of experience is and what is most important to them in their next career move. We aim to find the right fit for both client and candidate.

PFS Bespoke Search


Having worked closely with a large amount of clients for many years we often are challenged to come up with a new approach to meet their changing staffing needs.

As a medium sized company we are flexible enough to develop a bespoke solution for our clients that can evolve as your needs change.

Being a business that doesn’t like to stand still we particularly enjoy these challenges and often find by tearing up the rule book we become a better business for the experience.

Winning a tender for a large project with a short lead in period can create a staffing panic, especially if companies are operating with incomplete teams. We solve these situations by providing high calibre staff at short notice.

Whether it is for a single large project or framework agreement, we work with clients and assist them in planning their recruitment, trying where possible to forward plan and minimise the need for rushed appointments.
