Recruitment specialist launches construction site services brand

Following the dissolution of a competitor, Rotherham-based recruitment business Nicholas Associates Group (NAG) has acquired key construction labour contracts and has launched a brand called Cra-Cro Site Services.

This will specialise in helping skilled, experienced construction workers and tradespeople find jobs across the UK.

Cra-Cro is an original brand name used by NAG founder Nick Cragg when he launched his first company back in 1975.

The brand has been revived and will sit alongside the NA Construction brand which recruits professionally qualified roles such as quantity surveyors, commercial managers and site management professional jobs.

Cra-Cro Site Services will focus on recruitment of skilled construction workers such as brick layers, plasterers, joiners, electricians, plumbers, painters, decorators and general labourers and will be able to place over 100 labours in work each week.

Working with both local subcontractors and leading construction companies, the new division currently has contracts to provide skilled labour to Seddon Construction, Horbury Group, and Henry Boot.

The new company will be led by Steve Davis who will report to Paul Brammer, managing director of NAG and work alongside Matt Wainwright who is head of NA Construction recruitment.

Brammer said, “NAG brands are renowned for delivering exceptional experiences to both the employer and the employee.

“Our intention is to develop Cra-Cro Site Services as the go to as a specialist recruiter trusted by construction firms to source and place reliable and highly competent temporary construction workers.”
