About the company

My client is a Tier 2 Main Contractor turning over £50M and specialising within Multi Utilities and Power. They operate in Ireland but have a large presence in London. Company culture is important, isn’t it? My client also agrees. They are a tight-knit team with a very low staff turnover, this is due to recognition of hard work and performance from the owners and a great working environment. Company values are also extremely important, they believe in respect, teamwork, excellence, and integrity as well as a few others. My client has been trading for 20 years and is currently going through the busiest period the companies have ever had. Despite going through such a busy patch, they are not staying stagnant. They are planning on opening up some new divisions in the future including an infrastructure division.
