Role Group are leading site service providers for infrastructure projects across the civils, rail, highways and utilities sectors

About US



Established in 2016, Role Group was conceptualised by David McHugh, Managing Director, as an outcome of his extensive experience and ability to identify the requirement for skilled, reliable and experienced operatives in the construction, civils and rail industries.

The Role Group team are diligent in sourcing skilled and reliable trades and labour. Our current database consists of highly skilled operatives who have been assessed via our stringent vetting processes. The skills held by our operatives are reviewed on a regular basis with training offered to those who require renewals or upskilling via our in-house training company, Role Training Ltd. As a result of our synergetic recruitment and compliance strategies, we have the ability to provide clients with multi-skilled and flexible operatives at relatively short notice.

As a team of experienced recruiters, Role Group have a vast number of years’ experience under their belts. Our team are familiar with the regulations and compliance requirements that are a part of every construction project in the UK. On previous projects, we have built strong relationships with a variety of skilled tradespeople and are seen as a valued and reliable supplier within the sector. Our team has collectively transformed our expertise and knowledge into a respectable and dependable recruitment firm.

We have collaborated with our clients on some of the most high-profile projects in the UK. We have provided trades and labour, as well as logistical staff, to projects such as the Southall Waterside, Imperial College London, Highbury Corner Tunnels, Waterloo Platform Extension and the AMP 6 Framework. We are currently preparing our workforce to participate in the new AMP 7 Framework which will see Role Group provide trades and labour, logistical staff, confined spaces operatives and specialised utilities teams.

Aims for the future:

We are working to expand our workforce whilst maintaining our current quality of skilled trades and labour as we have the ability to upskill our operatives, in house, at no extra cost to our clients. Our new training centre will be supported by an innovative booking system, that will allow our operatives to easily book the training or renewals that they require. We are currently implementing a plan to expand our order book significantly by 2022 and aim to open a Role Group satellite office at a new location within the UK.
