The Director

The company was formed by Kenny Smith who has 30 years hands on experience with a Quantity Surveying background in the construction industry having worked for four large contractors in this time developing a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry.

Kenny said:-

“I’m 52 years of age and have over 30 years of commercial experience in the construction industry. I held senior positions including Commercial Manager, Managing Surveyor and Commercial Project Lead during a 20 year period, prior to that having been a Senior QS and Quantity Surveyor for 10 years. I have a strong civils, utilities and building background and have commercially managed delivery teams and projects across a broad spectrum of sectors including Building, Rail, Energy, Water, Roads, Airports, Defence and Utilities. I have a comprehensive knowledge of civil engineering and building contract conditions and specialised in contractual claims. I have worked on projects in value up to £250M and been involved in estimating/planning and tender negotiations with clients through preferred bidder stage to conclusion of contract award.

I have the hands on experience and knowledge to be able to properly identify suitable candidates across all staff disciplines from Administrator through to Director level. I have been involved in the recruitment process from the Contractor’s side since 1996 and have often been left frustrated from a client’s perspective at the lack of suitable candidates being put forward and the level of understanding of the role from recruiters. Having now added over 3 years experience of full time recruitment delivery to the 30 years of commercial experience I am well placed to fully understand client requirements and deliver the suitable candidate.

I will personally discuss, assist and add value to your requirements”
