Caledonian Building Services was founded by Directors, Gemma Saunders, and Ben McQueeney, following on from successful careers at a previous recruitment agency, they noticed the good and the bad, together they decided to start up their own company focussing on the core values and principles they believe make a good recruitment business.
With the backing of the Caledonian Recruitment Group this idea came to fruition in January 2020 and Caledonian Building Services was formed.
The Caledonian Recruitment group encapsulates all the values and goals that we have within the recruitment market.
Since we both started our careers in recruitment, we have been hungry not only to increase our yearly billings but our personal development.
The group believes in bringing the quality services back to the industry whilst allowing the directors to lead, manage and grow their own business in the way we see fit.
The trust and support afforded to us has given us all the belief to make our business a household name in Building Services Recruitment.
