Contracts Manager, Mechanical Client, South Wales

Luke is a good guy, working well and getting on with everyone at the arena.

Plumber, South Wales

I can only offer sincere praise for Paul, and the team at Pier consulting. Having worked as a sub contract plumber for a number of years, Paul has consistently provided me with quality work, on professional sites. 

You always know where you stand with Paul. If he says he’s going to do something, you can count on it being done. He works hard to develop lasting relationships with all of us that work through Pier consulting, always paying the highest rates, and even sending us all gifts on birthdays and at Christmas. I can’t speak highly enough of Paul and P.I.E.R. And it is always my first point of contact when I’m looking for work.

Thanks for everything.

Plumber, Swansea

I’ve been working for pier consulting for the last 8 months. I’ve had no problems with payment   Always on time and always right. Paul has been very good to me personally when I had an accident on site he messaged me every day to check if I was ok.  This agency has been a stand out compare to other agencies. Thanks again.

Plumber, Swansea

I got laid off from my job of 7 years in July and signed up with Pier consulting. From day one they were magnificent and so easy to work alongside with. I’ve been with them now for 9 months and have had work constantly through that period. Pier are also so easy to contact and communication is next to none. Highly recommend.

Plumber, South Wales

Over the years P.I.E.R have kept me in regular employment on ambitious contracts. Friendly and approachable staff who keep in touch on a frequent basis, always competing for a fair rate and terms for the tradesman. Highly recommended.

Housing Association Client, Cardiff

Yes I have been happy with Alex and his work. He has mainly been carrying out periodic electric tests and doing 2 every day with a very good access rate, and would have no hesitation on using him again.

CMB Engineering

Thanks for ‘holding his hand’ through the process. He’s lucky to work for you and not other (unnamed) agencies. I don’t know of many who would have done all of that for an agency worker.

Mechanical Supervisor, Cardiff

It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with you on this project, you went above and beyond to make sure we were provided with skilled tradesmen needed to complete this project in a short time scale. That is a great achievement for an employment agency considering the current climate and resources available. You stayed in touch throughout the nightshifts on a regular basis checking up on everyone’s well-being which I can not fault you for, all I can say is that it was a pleasure to work with you and hope to stay with you all the best for the future.

Dodd Group Cymru

We have recently delivered a large student accommodation scheme in Cardiff with a very tight construction programme, which required high level of skilled M&E resource on a complex sequence of work.  P.I.E.R were able to support our needs throughout the period of construction by working collaboratively with us prior to commencement on site.  We were able to sit down and discuss our initial resource needs, working time scales, labour expectations and payment fees to establish a mutual understanding going forward for the period of the scheme.  We were pleased with the outcome overall and Pier were found to be adaptable and flexible at stages that were of high strategic importance to the scheme.  They also encouraged a feeling of togetherness for their employees, which was demonstrated several times, one example of which was Pier management calling to site and providing all of their operatives with Easter Eggs as a small gesture of their efforts.

The paperwork information and record keeping was also very good and the quality of operatives in most parts was above average, which reflects in our working ethos and ultimately aided the delivery of a quality project.


We look forward to working with P.I.E.R on future schemes.

We have been using P.I.E.R for the last couple of years. They have provided us with qualified, reputable and experienced mechanical tradesmen for a variety of different projects across Bristol and the South West. Within this time P.I.E.R have provided us with pipefitters, pipefitter/welders, mechanical mates and plumbers. We have always found the calibre of all labour to be of a high standard.

The team have quickly learnt how our company operates and what our expectations are when looking for additional temporary labour, ensuring they place the most productive workers with us.

I would have no hesitation in recommending P.I.E.R Ltd to anyone looking to hire additional labour. In our opinion the P.I.E.R team understand what a contractor wants from a labour only supplier and they deliver this without the hassle.

Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services Ltd

I have used P.I.E.R for a number of years. I can rely on P.I.E.R to provide a no-nonsense, professional service, offering the best possible available labour.

P.I.E.R have brought their knowledge of the varied available workforce along with a professional approach, which makes the search for reliable labour easy and hassle free.

When looking for labour, P.I.E.R are my first stop.

Amberwell Engineering Services Ltd

P.I.E.R have always provided a good, cost effective service to Amberwell Engineering Services and I have no problem in recommending them to other companies.

Weston Electrical & Mechanical Ltd

We have been using P.I.E.R services for additional Mechanical & Electrical tradesmen for the last 12 months, and would like to say how very pleased we are with the service, the labour and the communication we have received.

The staff at P.I.E.R have been available at all hours of the day and night to assist us in such a busy period, quickly responded to our requests. P.I.E.R have shown that our business is important to them and that they go that extra mile to assist us with our recruitment needs.  They have recruited a number of Electricians, Pipefitters, Supervisors and Project Managers.

P.I.E.R have worked extremely hard to accommodate our needs and offering solutions for us.   I would recommend them to any M&E Contractor as reputable and experienced recruiter.

J.W. & E. Morris & Son Ltd

All I can say is the service provided by P.I.E.R is second to none. I normally tend to ring up at stupid o’clock on a Friday afternoon with some unreasonable demand for labour, in all of the country and to be fair I’m yet to be disappointed.

The labour provided is of a high standard and I have never had cause for concern over the work force supplied. The P.I.E.R personnel we speak to on a daily basis, are always very friendly, polite and extremely helpful.

Xcav8 Ltd

We are a civil engineering company with nationwide contracts and have been working with P.I.E.R for the last 3 months in the recruitment of operatives. Since the beginning of our business relationship with P.I.E.R, we have been impressed with the professionalism of both Michaela and Rachel; they are extremely helpful and friendly and always deal with any queries in a timely manner.

We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Asset Services

In our capacity working within payroll, I have had the pleasure of working with P.I.E.R for a number of years and have always found them to be easy to deal with and extremely efficient.

Their staff are friendly and knowledgeable in their area of expertise and regularly show a willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ in order to deliver quality customer service. I would have no hesitation in recommending P.I.E.R to anyone looking for a professional and efficient option for their recruitment needs.

Weston Electrical & Mechanical Ltd

We have been using P.I.E.R Ltd to hire additional M&E Labour, giving us access to other services which have  assisted us greatly, by taking all the time and hassle out of sourcing and booking courses at a competitive rate.  We have booked training for operatives on courses such as, ECS tests, SMSTS, SSSTS, & CSCS Tests to name but a few.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to any other contractors who require additional training.  Pier Resources staff deal with any request, sourcing the best value courses available and take care of everything from start to finish leaving us to get on with our business.

Bouygues UK

Rachel and Michaela really stepped up to the plate for us in offering mock interviews for our trainee labourers. They were very professional but friendly and gave valuable feedback to the trainees involved.

We hope to continue this relationship as this kind of support is pivotal to our trainees moving closer to employment. Our business already uses P.I.E.R for the recruitment of Labourers in South Wales and this additional support has shown us that P.I.E.R is willing to go the extra mile.


Over the last 5 years Interserve have used the services of P.I.E.R Ltd to provide additional Trades and Labour for various projects.

We have always found P.I.E.R to act professionally and promptly, they always strive to deliver a quality service – even at times when we have required labour at very short notice, all of whom have been to a good standard.

This has been made possible through P.I.E.R’s dedicated team, who have made it their priority to ensure that our requirements are fulfilled and serviced to the best of their abilities. P.I.E.R completely understand how Interserve work and what we require. I have no hesitation in recommending P.I.E.R as a reliable provider of labour to main contractors or sub-contractors. I believe their approach to recruitment and their business is second to none and I am sure any client would benefit from their quality service.Chris Edmonds, Site Manager, Interserve

Barratt Homes Ltd

Since using P.I.E.R I have found them to be extremely professional, courteous and willing to go the extra mile to provide us with the best possible resource. P.I.E.R have always reacted quickly to our requests and have provided us with an excellent calibre of candidates.

I would not hesitate in recommending P.I.E.R to assist with any temporary staffing requirements.

Concept Balustrades Ltd

I would like to thank P.I.E.R for providing labour to us over the past 4 years and on our more recent projects.

We have benefited from their involvement on many of the major projects that we have had, as many operatives that have been provided by them have already undergone site induction on our sites.

The calibre of labour has always met our requirements for site installation and manufacturing in the workshop.

Bovis Homes

I have been using P.I.E.R for a number of years. Over this long period of time I have found them to be very professional and knowledgeable in their field. P.I.E.R have supplied me with many different trades from forklift drivers to site managers. They supply only tried and tested individuals. I would have no reasons at all not to recommend anyone use P.I.E.R whether looking for temporary or permanent staff.


I have worked closely with P.I.E.R for in excess of 10 years. During my tenure as Regional Construction Director for Persimmon Homes, East Wales, they became my sole provider of quality Site Managers. They have always conducted themselves in a professional, honourable and timely manner.

More recently they have acted for me personally and assisted in securing me another senior position within the Construction Industry, which was done with courtesy and confidentiality.

I can therefore highly commend the service they provide and would not hesitate in recommending them either personally or professionally.
