At King Contract Services, we help contractors recruit for a range of groundworks roles to prepare a site before development. Groundworkers play a crucial role in construction by removing waste and sewage from the site, redirecting pipework and electrical wiring, levelling the ground, and laying down concrete, flag stones, drainage channels, asphalt, and curbs.

As such, groundworkers are professional construction workers who need to demonstrate competence in a range of skills and be able to show initiative under changing conditions. From a recruitment perspective, finding appropriate groundworkers involves careful screening and background checks, with close attention being paid to work references and level of experience.

As construction recruitment specialists, our team have first-hand knowledge of the challenges involved with the groundworker role, and what site managers look for in their staff to get the best results and achieve their project outcomes. We work with you to map out the objectives and tasks required from your groundworkers and match these to active candidates looking for work in our applicant database.

We offer both temporary and permanent recruitment solutions, and work within your timescale and budget to provide the ideal staff, who not only look good on paper, but also who turn up on site on time and provide a reliable service during the project. Variable recruitment durations are available, ranging from a few days to permanent hires.

Groundworker roles we can recruit for include:

  • Groundworker managers (black CSCS card)
  • Groundworker supervisors (gold CSCS card)
  • Plant and tool operators (blue and red CSCS card)
  • General and skilled labourers
  • Supporting trades – including plumbers, electricians, site surveyors etc
  • Groundworkers
