Every client is unique which is why Alex Young Recruitment offers a unique, transparent approach to recruitment.

Unlike other recruitment companies we don’t expect you to fit in with the way we work. Our philosophy is to work in partnership with you, to fully understand your needs so we can put forward the right candidates, from management to engineers, which meet your specific expectations.

A small M&E provider will not have the same requirements as a national TFM supplier, who will not have the same needs as a company looking to grow an in-house FM and Maintenance team.

Therefore we will ensure the recruitment process is tailored to your specific organisation.


Our sole purpose is to get the right person in the right job. Every candidate is fully assessed so we have a proper understanding of their skills and experience and the role they are looking for. We won’t send anyone to an interview that does not meet your requirements as an employer.

And if we feel we can’t meet your expectations, then we will tell you. Recruitment can be a costly experience and we don’t want to waste your time and money if we can’t help you.

Therefore you can be assured that whoever you select will be a long term asset to your organisation. So give us a call now on 020 3770 7067 or 020 3770 7068.

But don’t take our word for it, this is what our existing clients have to say…

Pete Williams, Area Contract Manager for Optimum Group Services, says…

“I began working with AYR to fill some specific contract needs whilst working at Kier Workplace Services to support the mobilisation of London Borough Southwark contract in 2016.

“In that time they managed to effectively find me candidates of the highest calibre and were successful in placing seven of the eight vacancies I had for M&E engineers at all levels.

“During this time we extended the opportunity to AYR to find candidates for London Borough of Lewisham and London Fire Brigade contracts and they continue to source and place candidates that are both client facing and competent.

“AYR have ensured that they get the right candidates that fit the project scope, on time and to budget. This has resulted in us having employees that are effective and suitable for the tasks for which they are employed and allowed me to effectively manage my recruitment finances.

“AYR  only contact me with candidates which are suitable for my contracts and I will continue to use them to assist in the future.

“They have been very professional and have an open and honest approach when fielding candidates. I would recommend them to be part of any successful recruitment process.”

Jane McCarte, Contract Manager for Kier,  says…

“Having worked with Alex Young Recruitment for the past year, I am happy to recommend them as a preferred supplier. The organisation as a whole seems extremely professional, with Claudio Rojas and Matt Young taking a great deal of time and effort to understand the roles being recruited for and the nature of candidates required. ”

“We no longer review CVs to select candidates as we have sufficient trust in Alex Young for them to draw up short lists and arrange interviews. Having taken on a number of staff in recent months, the majority of successful applicants have been selected from them.

“I have absolute confidence in their ability to meet the needs of the business, being flexible and responsive to individual business situations, often urgently sourcing personnel successfully.”

Mick Colgan, Operations Director for Aramark Workplace Solutions, says…

“I have been working with AYR for the past three years and I have found them to be professional in all aspects of their business.

“Their attention to detail with regards to finding the right solution for the relevant position has allowed me to find the right candidate swiftly and without delay whatever the requirement and in most geographical areas of UK.”

Ruth Arnott, Head of HR for City FM, says…

“As Head of HR for City FM, I have been working with Claudio and Matt from Alex Young Recruitment for almost two years. They came to me, recommended by one of my managers, when we were struggling to recruit in a particular area.

“Since then, we have used their services on a number of occasions and the quality of their candidates has always been high.

“They seem to have a knack of finding good candidates in geographies where other agencies typically struggle. I am more than happy with the service that I receive from Alex Young Recruitment and would have no hesitation in recommending them for your recruitment needs.”

Benjamin Summers, Mobilization Manager for Kier, says…

“Claudio and Matt provide great attention and care when listening to our business needs. They also seek to understand what it is we are trying to achieve and provide us with a range of candidates that are best suited for the specialist roles we require.

“Alex Young Recruitment is a forward thinking recruitment company that puts their clients at the heart of what they do.

“We have used Alex Young Recruitment many times over the years because we trust the candidates they provide to be high quality and suited for our needs. What makes Alex Young Recruitment stand out from other companies, is their personal approach to us as clients which builds strong relationships ensuring the best is always put forward.”

Dominic Harris, Regional Manager – British Red Cross, Kier Services says…

“I would like to pass on my praise for Ben on his assistance on filling our engineering position on the Red Cross Oxford region. Ben was always professional and courteous in his manner and was a pleasure to deal with. If I require any assistance in the future I will in touch.”
