A bit about us
Edge Careers started out back in 2002 trading then as Edge Partners. The vision back then has become today’s reality – to provide an unrivalled professional, knowledgeable and quality led recruitment service that ‘Add Value’ to both Clients and Candidates operating in the Construction industry, offering an engaging experience that delivers results. Over the years we continually progressed our services within the Construction sector starting out predominantly working at Executive level and then branching out to operate recruitment services across all areas of the Construction industry, through to our current services – Executive, Trades & Labour, Freelance and Permanent.
Our success within the Construction sector led us to expand into another market, that of IT and Digital. We felt that as this is a sector that transcends all industries, it would complement Construction recruitment, supporting Edge Careers in matching the progress and future direction of the Digital Construction industry as well as being a standalone success within the wider IT and Digital markets.
The Edge ethos in all divisions and markets does not change, at the heart of our business we have people who are passionate and knowledgeable about the industry and sector they operate in, enabling them to converse with both Client and Candidate at a level where they can be trusted to meet and exceed both their respective requirements. This is demonstrated through our long standing Client and Candidate relationships that in some cases span over 25 years. These include a multitude of clients from privately owned regional businesses, to large multinational PLC’s.
We have offices located in London, Manchester and the Birmingham area and continue to expand as a business. This wide spread of office locations enables us to extensively cover your recruitment needs on a National and also an International basis.
As Construction and IT & Digital Recruitment experts, our aim is to offer you the best possible recruitment experience. No matter which division you work with, you will have a Key Account Manager providing you with one point of contact throughout the recruitment process, providing you with a service and subsequent delivery that is straight forward and effective.
As a continually growing business that intends to be at the forefront of progressive change in the Recruitment industry, as well as maintaining a strong awareness of changes and future needs within the industries we operate in, you can be assured we are here to ‘Add Value’ by working with you at all points of operational service and this is done by communicating in a professional, legal and moral manner at all times.

I recently had an urgent need for a Design Manager for an extra care scheme and I’d like to thank Edge Careers for their rapid response to my requirements. They made time to listen to what I required, and in a challenging candidate lead market, they presented me with three exceptional candidates. Their speed of delivery and commitment to helping me secure the right candidate was second to none. I wish other recruitment companies acted so professionally and quickly. Thank you, Edge Careers. It goes without saying when I require my next white collar worker or operative, Edge Careers will be the first company I contact.
