About The Company

Project Resource is a specialist recruitment consultancy providing professionals to the construction and infrastructure sectors with 3 offices across the UK including Reading, Solihull and Manchester.  Although we are well established as a company in our market we are still near the start of ‘our story’ and as a business we continue to aspire to bigger and better things........for us everything is still up for grabs!

With continued growth we attribute our success to the strength of our relationships with our clients, a strong management team and to the individual successes and career development of our consultants.

At Project Resource our sales culture is not one of fulfilling KPIs of call numbers and sending volumes of CVs, we measure your success purely and simply on the billings you make. This leaves you the freedom to work in a truly consultative way and to focus on building real relationships with your clients and candidates.
