Living the dream

We are an ambitious and energetic bunch, making us some of Randstad UK's top billers. Our team is bursting with trainees and experienced recruitment consultants who love smashing targets and working in a fast-paced, competitive environment. Winning makes us tick and rewards us with big bucks. It's all about living the high life - our car parks are packed with flash cars and our conferences and parties are 5-star all the way. .

Celebrating success

The best consultants...

Half of Randstad UK's top billers are based in our CPE branches


We're in demand

We know we're great at what we do....and so does everyone else in the construction, property and engineering industries. We've built strong relationships with some of the biggest and fastest growing names in the market. Whether temporary or permanent, candidates are knocking down our doors to boost their CV and salary.

Why? We're renowned for being recruitment partners for some of the UK's most high profile projects. From rail to automotive and skilled labour to architecture, you'll always see us in the trade press and on supply agreements.

Work hard, play hard

We take pride in every aspect of what we do. Our contemporary and swanky offices make us the envy of our colleagues. Of course we'll be busy interviewing candidates and taking job specs from clients during the day but you'll also find us catching rays by the lake at lunchtime or shooting pool.

We also know how to party after hitting our sales targets. Whether celebrating or re-charging, it's all about work-life balance.

About us

From site management to engineering management, the list is endless.

We’re always on the look-out for talented project managers, surveyors, labourers, electricians, maintenance, shift managers and engineers.

Winning branch of the year


Fancy some of this?

Our fast paced sales environment sets us apart from our competition with uncapped commission schemes & rewards at 5* hotels. Audi's & BMW's are always seen in our car parks as well as the occasional Maserati & R8.

Get into pole position...

...with the CPE directors club

Top talent

There aren't many senior management teams who can boast 75 years of experience. Plus, their success isn't a best kept secret. You won't find our senior team members holed up in a dusty office; they're active role models who are often out on the floor making a difference to their teams at a desk level.

If you're a self-starter this formula is a surefire springboard to success. One hungry employee has accelerated from trainee to Operations Director and he's always first to share his tips so you can get in on the action.
