Paul Walker, Digital Engineering Lead HPC Hinkley Point C) needed to build a large team of Digital/BIM Engineers to cover a number of disciplines and job roles working on the £2bn New Build of Hinkley Point Power Station.

Challenge Digital Engineers (BIM) professionals are in very high demand throughout the country, there isn’t enough in the South West to cater for the project requirements and with lodge not being offered we had to get people to relocate to the area. Bylor JV was in complete reliance to external recruitment as only 3 of the team came from the parent companies, therefore, the risk to the programme and the entire project was huge if Charlton Recruitment did not deliver, therefore, business critical.

"Andy contacted me with a job opportunity. Andy clearly outlined the job opportunity to me and provided excellent advice on where I needed to adjust my CV and areas to research in preparation for the interview process. I was offered the position within this organisation and I'm thoroughly enjoying my new role.  

We all get contacted by recruitment agents multiple times and in my experience many are not providing a quality service. Andy is a first-class recruitment agent and I would fully recommend his services, whether you are looking for a new position or looking to recruit within your business."
