What we do

We provide professional and technical, trades and labour and facility management recruitment solutions in the Civil Engineering Industry. We recruit across the civils, water, energy, highways and rail sectors. In particular, we specialise in providing contract and permanent recruitment services at all levels nationwide across the UK and Ireland.


We mainly work with top-tier contractors on the most iconic projects currently taking place in the UK. Some of the projects that our contractors have worked on over our 20 plus year history include the London Millennium Dome, Channel Tunnel Rail Link (HS1), the London Olympics and Crossrail.

How We Work

How We Do It

Our aim is to be the agency of choice for both candidates and clients and to offer honest and impartial advice based on our complete understanding of the construction industry. We work to our company values of Honesty, Integrity, Proactivity and Professionalism to ensure we offer the best service.

Many of our consultants have worked on-site which helps us to understand the complexities of the projects that we are recruiting for and assists us in choosing the best candidate for the role.

CarmichaelUK fleet vehicles are just one of the benefits among many that we offer our working candidates.

We have a total of 40 vehicles that are Chapter 8 compliant and therefore eligible for use on-site. Our fleet vehicles can be rented to our candidates for use to travel to and from work whilst in contract with CarmichaelUK.

Health, Safety & Wellbeing

The health, safety and wellbeing of our contractors is a top priority for CarmichaelUK.  We want to make sure that all our contractors work in an environment where safety is absolutely the main priority. We achieve this by conducting regular independent site audits to ensure that the site is safe for our candidates to work.


We also provide our candidates with access to our 16 Mental Health First Aiders as well as the opportunity to take part in training to become an on-site Mental Health First Aider.

Events & Socials

We understand the importance of work-life balance, plus we love meeting and socialising with our candidates! Throughout the year we regularly organise after-work events near our sites which provide a great opportunity to relax and socialise.


Closer to Christmas, we also have our infamous CarmichaelUK Christmas Contractor Party!


The CUK Community

Many of our candidates comment on the community that working for CarmichaelUK creates on-site.


We actively promote this with frequent site visits to individually meet our candidates, ensure they are happy in the role they are in and answer any queries or concerns, as well as drop off a few of our CUK Goodie Bags filled with sweet treats and merch!
