Cousins launch recruitment agency

Two cousins have founded a national temporary construction recruitment agency based in Mansfield.

Entrepreneurs Bradley Gough, (20), and Reece Davies, (24), are trying to get people in the local community and beyond into work.

They hope their business, Davies Gough Recruitment Ltd, based at Mansfield Business Centre, will offer more than other recruitment agencies.

They said they would sponsor 10 temporary workers a year to be put through a course of their choice (CPCS or NRSWA for example).

The company also plans to run a temporary worker of the month competition to reward good timekeeping documentation management with vouchers.

Bradley, managing director, said: “I want to encourage more young entrepreneurs to take the risk and try running a company for themselves through media coverage, speaking at events and hopefully going into schools to inspire students.”

He said the new company adhered to a strict candidate vetting process that includes a validation of qualifications and reference checks with previous employers.

“Our business is driven by looking after candidates as well as we look after our clients,” he said.

“We offer a complete recruitment service that includes advertising, networking or headhunting to find and match suitable candidates; and listening to both clients and candidates to find them the perfect fit — all with competitive rates.”

Bradley has worked in the construction recruitment sector for several years, starting as an apprentice and working for a number of the East Midlands leading construction agencies.

He will head up the day-to-day operations, while Reece is financial director.

After eight years of working in the construction sector, starting as a bricklaying apprentice and achieving an NVQ Level 1 and 2, and Diploma 1 and 2, Reece went on to become a groundworker.

He has gained NPORS tickets allowing him to drive machines up to 10 tonnes, and his HGV Class 1 licence,
