About 1st Step

1st Step Solutions was established in 2004 by experienced recruitment professionals with a passion to deliver innovative recruitment solutions to the Building Services, Construction, Rail and Civil Engineering industries.

Our reputation is built on customer focus and candidate satisfaction and consistently deliver a quality and compliant service at a competitive price. We boast a near perfect repeat customer base and pride ourselves on their experience being as good now as it was their first time.

The quality of staff is the benchmark of any organisation providing human resources, which is why our highly trained and quality recruitment professionals undertake tailored internal and professional training to the high standards set by our trade association, the Recruitment & Employers’ Confederation (REC).

We provide multimillion pound national and international contractors and adopt the same practices as those used with our SME partners, whether north or south, small or large, rail or civils, it’s all about the people and the quality of a personal service, supported by our database and infrastructure to deliver front and back office.

Our mission; quite simply, is to offer transparency of service, dependability and trust, ensuring long term working relationships are formed with our customers and candidates.
