Construction & Engineering


Construction & Engineering


We focus on sourcing talented, ambitious, enthusiastic, and well-rounded Construction & Engineering, and IT professionals for all types of companies.

We work closely in partnership with a variety of carefully selected Main Contractor and Consulting Engineering practices, as well as Management Consultancies and Tech Startups.

We understand their long-term strategic goals and shorter-term project-specific requirements to consult on the people they need in place to achieve those objectives. This helps ensure they’re delivering projects to a high standard, keeping their clients happy and encouraging repeat business.

Our vision for Urban Connect is to be a true partner delivering multi-disciplinary recruitment solutions.

Andrew at Urban Connect has been excellent at helping me secure my recent role. He is personable and very patient. He made a real effort to understand my personality and has an art to match people with the right company.

I have worked with Andrew as a candidate and as a client for a while now and I have had great success working with him in both roles. He has a good understanding of the industry and the companies that he works with. He listens to your requirements and ultimately tries his best to pair candidate and client together. Andrew is someone that I would definitely work with again in both situations.

Rory has a number of good connections and long-standing acquaintances in the Civil/Structural Engineering fields. This allowed him to pinpoint suitable firms/consultancies which were best suited to my personal and career ambitions. Many thanks for all your hard work.

Andrew has helped me with a couple of roles now and both times I cannot fault him. He didn't force feed me job roles, he took time to get to know me and found a role suited to me personally, rather than just another engineering role. Couldn't recommend him enough.

We have worked closely with Andrew for a number of years, over which he has always made great effort to understand our business and core values, enabling him to align high quality candidates with the necessary attributes to succeed and develop within our company.

As Urban Connect grows, we look forward to further developing our relationship as we are sure that Andrew and his team will continue to offer a first rate service.
