MEP Recruitment

MEP recruitment for Kier – Building trusted relationships

Established in 1928, Kier Group plc is a leading provider of infrastructure services, construction and property developments. The group has approximately 10,000 employees and 400 live projects, delivering its services across the UK.

One of the main aims of any business, regardless of size, is recruiting the best staff for each role. Given the size and scope of Kier, and the projects the group works on, this is especially true for their MEP recruitment team. MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) services are the backbone of every building, turning architectural blueprints into habitable spaces. However, the challenge for Kier is finding those skilled candidates.
