Concept Balustrades Ltd

I would like to thank Pier Consulting 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 Pier Consulting for a number of years. Over this long period of time I have found them to be very professional and knowledgeable in their field. Pier Consulting 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 Pier Consulting whether looking for temporary or permanent staff.


I have worked closely with Pier Consulting 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.

Rio Architects Ltd

Pier Consulting have gone to great lengths to understand our business and projects enabling them to effectively fulfil our resourcing needs.

We trust their judgement on selecting the highest calibre of candidates and the type of people who will maximise the quality of our service.

Weston Electrical & Mechanical Ltd

Weston Electrical understands the importance of introducing apprentices into our business to assist in the growth of M&E trades within South Wales.

Just starting out as a new contractor in the market we needed to secure contracts before we could commit to training. Pier Consulting introduced us to their new division “flexible Apprenticeships” which allows us to take on apprentices in the exact same way as a temporary Electrician or Pipefitter.

Pier Consulting provide an excellent service, removing all the hassle of recruiting. Because they are in Partnerships with BEST an apprentice training provider, they are able to manage all the paperwork, on-site assessment’s, college time, PPE, Tools, and all other tasks associated with the management of an apprentice.

I would recommend this to any M&E contractor as a route to start taking on apprentices again!!


BEST has worked in partnership with Pier Consulting since 2012 to offer an alternative to the traditional apprenticeship training model. Based on a strong desire to get young people into apprenticeships in the Building Services Industry, by enabling employers of all sizes to feel confident in being able to offer young people training in their workplaces.

The first young people taken onto the scheme in 2013 reaped the benefits of the support offered by Pier Consulting with provision of site PPE and starter tool kits, from BEST with programme induction, review of progress and mentoring and from their ‘host’ employer with training and practical experience on site.

The scheme has worked extremely well, with close contact being maintained between all parties involved – the employer is kept informed of appropriate activities and the evidence the apprentices need to ensure progress is maintained.

One of the first apprentices is now approaching completion of their Level 2 Apprenticeship, with 2 more apprentices signed up for their Flexible Apprenticeship this September, and many more to follow.
