History of Ward
Ward Personnel was established by David Ward in late 2010 and commenced trading that November. With more than 12 years’ experience in the Construction Recruitment sector behind him, David had experienced first-hand the years of boom in the Irish Construction Industry which were followed by a period of massive decline. Despite the severe recession in the construction industry in 2010, David saw an opportunity for a new provider of construction personnel and Ward Personnel was born.
Since then, Ward Personnel has established itself as a provider of a high quality service to many of the countries’ largest building and civil engineering contractors including Bam Building, John Sisk & Son, PJ Hegarty & Sons, Bam Civil, Murphy International, Walls Construction, John Paul Construction, Duggan Brothers, Clancy Construction, John Cradock, and Denis Moriarty The Kerries to name a few. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent service to our clients and we strive to source and supply the best possible candidate for every vacancy we receive from our clients.
Our aim is to build long-term relationships with all of our clients and this is at the core of how we operate. We appreciate every order we receive from our clients and we understand that it is very important to our clients, that we get the right candidate to them for every vacancy. For this reason, we take great care in selecting our candidates and if we cannot find a candidate that we are happy to provide, we will explain that to our client and we will leave the vacancy unfilled. We would prefer to leave a vacancy unfilled than to supply a candidate that we know to be a wrong fit for our client’s requirements.
Operatives & Trades Staff:
At Ward Personnel, we provide all types of workers across the construction spectrum from Gatemen and Storemen to Skilled Tradesmen. We interview and reference-check all of our candidates before considering them for employment to ensure that they have the correct qualifications and training (Safepass, CSCS ticket etc) as well as the relevant experience for the particular role we are considering them for. We monitor the expiry dates on all tickets and training certs for all of our employees to ensure that their training will never expire while they are working on an assignment for Ward Personnel.
Management & Technical Staff:
Ward Personnel provide a full Management & Technical Staff recruitment service. We provide this service on a temporary or permanent basis depending on our individual client’s needs.
