Meridian’s Construction division is built on the knowledge and skill of our experienced Managers and Consultants. Our branch network allows us to resource requirements nationally whilst retaining crucial local knowledge.
Our extensive candidate database, amassed over the past 30 years, provides us with instant access to an abundant supply of quality professionals, trades people and semi-skilled workers.
Meridian works across all industries within the Built Environment, from new build housing to heavy Civils infrastructure. Specialist consultants within these sectors allow us deliver a professional and unparalleled service.
We are used to recruiting to high security sites or Contracts demanding high levels of safety. Meridian has supplied to MOD, MOJ and Aerospace Projects, carrying out DBS, Drugs & Alcohol and various other background checks.
All our staff must adhere to our ISO 9001 accreditation and all workers supplied will be fully vetted and reference checked. However wherever possible, we will endeavour to use tried and tested candidates that have worked for Meridian previously, over the course of our many years experience.
By having a strong core nucleus of candidates that work for us throughout the year, we can offer them continuity of employment and minimise the reliability issues that many of our clients complain about with our competitors.
