The Company

CarmichaelUK is a leading recruitment business specialising in the construction and civil engineering sectors.  The company has developed a respected reputation spanning twenty years working in partnership with our valued client base.  Our reputation is further enhanced by the long standing relationships that we enjoy with our loyal and talented contractors.

We work throughout the UK with a select number of tier 1 construction principal contractors and specialist sub-contractors.  We have offices in Birmingham, London, Oxford, Warrington and Manchester. 

The Role

CarmichaelUK has invested and committed to continuous improvement across the business through training, mentoring, coaching and new state of the art recruitment software programmes.  The Team Leader will be able to manage and grow existing accounts within T&L as well as create opportunities for the division to carry out profitable business within the key accounts of other divisions.  The person appointed will be used to meeting and exceeding targets, be capable of operating in a 360 degree role, and understand how to affect positive change behaviour to create a high performance culture within the team.
