Candidate Testimonials

Read what our candidates are saying about us

" I was extremely pleased with UKL, and George Cumersdale particularly right from the outset, and was more than impressed with their professional approach towards me and the potential clients they had in mind for me. From my perspective I was a week and a half into a 4 week notice period and was concerned that I had not approached any companies with the prospect of employment, so I felt an urgency to move this forward quickly. UKL arranged for my CV & profile to be approved and once they had assessed the experience I had, immediately focused their attention on getting me an interview with McLaren.

Dominic Coyne of UKL met up with me directly so he could gauge what level of experience he felt I had and assess if I would be a good match for McLaren. Within a week UKL had prepared my CV and sent it off to Richard Eager (Operations Director – McLaren) who was keen to see me as soon as possible, which was great news for me and a relaxant for my nerves.

UKL made sure that I was fully aware of Richard's background, McLaren's history and all the details of my first interview. The interview went very well, to the extent that Richard spoke to UKL the same day to arrange for a second interview with the divisional director. UKL were keen to pass their positive news straight on to myself so I was kept fully in the loop with everything that was happening.

Once again the second interview was arranged and I was coached on the background history of the divisional director and the way he works. This was vital information in the preparation of my interview and I believe a contributory factor in the successful appointment of myself to McLaren Construction. Again, straight after the interview there was support and feedback from UKL who were positive that I had it in the bag and continued to support me with positive feedback until I had the confirmation from McLaren that they were offering me the contract. All in all it was all very successful.

Tony Phillips, Senior Site Manager, McLaren Construction 

"Having worked for UKL Group for the past 5 years I can say without hesitation that they are a professionally driven team. They are market leaders in their field and serve Blue Chip clients and candidates alike. Support after placement is first class and I have always felt that nothing is too much trouble. I look forward to continuing my long relationship with UKL Group."

S.C Construction Manager 

"I have been with UKL Group for a few years and I can honestly say that the quality and the professionalism of this company is second to none. From the admin staff to the management at every level are friendly and very helpful in every way, whether it is dealing with serious or trivial requests as we contractors can be at times demanding. UKL have a broad client base from which to match contractor and client for the ideal job to suit both parties and also negotiate the best rates possible in these testing times. I have been lucky enough in the positions that UKL have help place me in as a Freelance Site Manager to form and keep some great working relationships with main contractors and UKL personnel alike and also some great friends over the years I have been on UKL's books."

R.W Site Manager

"As Dominic knows, I had never used a recruitment consultant before UKL. I found the process to open, honest and quick. I set my high, yet realistic target to UKL and they got me the right interview, with the right company and I got the job, for the right package.

Would recommend."

M.G Construction Manager 

"UKL have placed me on several contracts over the years and I have found them to considerate in the type of companies and work that they have placed me on, rather than some agencies who will stick you anywhere just to get the money. This type of honest approach benefits the contractors as well as myself as I will not stay in a job that doesn't suit me and I'm not happy with. Also with UKL having a reputable and professional customer base this ensures you will not be expected to work on a job with unsafe conditions, and have a hassle getting timesheets signed or being paid, which gives me peace if mind."

G.K Site Manager 

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at UKL for all their help keeping me in employment and for all their support whilst working for various companies. My last placement was so successful that my freelance contract turned into permanent employment.
I hope to keep in touch with the team in the future.

Keep up the good work and once again many thanks."

D.M Site Manager 

"I have found the service from UKL excellent right from the beginning. With consistent and prompt payment every week and regular friendly check-in's to see if everything is going ok. UKL will be my first point of call for any future work needs."
