MEET YOUR CONSTRUCTION TEAM

Rob Ford

Construction and Group Director

My recruitment background is quite rare. I've only worked for one company, in one industry and with mostly the same team - and I love it. 

Back in my 20’s when I started I didn't really know what recruitment and construction were all about. My one focus then (and it still is now in my 40’s) is delivering on what I say without compromising on service. Going home at the weekend knowing we've done a great job for our clients and candidates is and always will be one of the biggest rewards I get from my career in recruitment at whatever level I have sat.

People development is a huge passion that I share with my leadership team and I am a big believer that if you look after & develop your staff and help them reach their potential then results will follow.

I get a massive buzz when we bring new staff into the teams and love seeing them grow into their role and start their journeys, just like I did many years ago.

I run the construction brand with all branches reporting directly to me - Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, Essex and Nottingham. I'm very proud of what my teams deliver every day and I thoroughly enjoy every minute I spend in each office. 

Outside of work, family is everything. I am married with two kids and have a passion for Rugby - I'm a keen supporter of Gloucester Rugby which, much like recruitment, has it's up’s and downs.
