Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) shares a commitment with Kingston Barnes to be a beacon of best practice and to lead and shape the construction industry in everything they do.

Andrew Ullyott is a partner and Head of Project Management at RLB Bristol and hires a lot of new staff, particularly project managers.

“Not every recruitment agency is comprised entirely of industry experts who instantly ‘get’ what their clients are looking for. It’s a sector that’s all too often tarred with the same brush as estate agents in that lazy recruiters ask a lot of money for not a lot of work – or real insight.

Kingston Barnes is different. They pride themselves on a management team that has over 100 years experience of the construction industry and a proven track record of matching the right candidate to the right vacancy.

We use Kingston Barnes because they charge reasonable fees and have a good understanding of our requirements.”
