Our clients share their Testimonials
I have worked with Liam across multiple projects for UGL & BHP and have always had the confidence that they can deliver with blue and white collar trades. Given these businesses operate off a panel, Liam and his team have always been very proactive in their approach. Liam is very accurate and realistic towards our expectations and I would have no hesitation in using him again for future work.
Liam has worked with me over the last 5 years and our relationship has blossomed due to the fact that we have a mutual understanding that our projects are based on a quick turn around, so speed and culture fit is critical to add to our full time crew. The team have always gone above and beyond for me and in a challenging market have always produced options for experienced blue collar trades.
Liam has worked tirelessly to search for and introduce suitable blue collar candidates to our operations – in a tight labour market Liam has really stepped up and provided solutions with little fuss.
