We are McGinley Support Services
The forward-thinking specialist recruitment business that's on a mission to remain an exemplary and inclusive employer.
Our Culture - What we do
With offices across the UK, we are one of the largest privately owned recruitment businesses to provide the infrastructure sector with talent at all levels.
All of our employees receive full induction training to help them integrate into McGinley life and learn about our specialist industries. We ensure new starters aren’t overloaded with information, whilst learning everything they need to feel confident in their duties.
We want to be regarded as an exemplary employer. We embrace diversity and seek to develop a business culture that reflects these beliefs. We work hard to ensure our values are embedded in our day-to-day working practices for the benefit of our customers, colleagues and partners. It is our goal to create an organisation that recognises the contribution of all staff and is supportive, fair, just and free from discrimination.
We are a family owned company and strive to maintain this family-feel culture. We pride ourselves on our team spirit and like to be honest and transparent with one another. This even extends to our office space, which is open plan, and our slim management structure, which gives all staff access to our directors. Even during difficult times, we band together and help each other through.
Every year, we proudly take part in the ‘Women In Rail Big Rail Diversity Challenge’ – a day of fun physical and mental challenges undertaken by teams with a gender balance of 50% female and 50% male. We also host more informal social events, whether it’s our bi-monthly drinks with the directors or pub quizzes, cake sales and sky dives in the name of charity.
Individuals are rewarded for their successes here, through our unrivalled commission and bonus structure. However, we also celebrate our successes as a team. Every September, we host our black tie 'Star Awards' to recognise our people for their outstanding accomplishments, leadership and service to the firm.
You'll be trained and developed throughout your career... You'll start with an induction then there will be various check points: three months, six months, one year and beyond.
I'm now on my third role in three years... I've really had the chance to progress and move upwards within the company.
Our Graduates - Who we are
I had a couple of friends working in Recruitment and they told me about the diversity of the role and the people that I'd get to meet doing it. So, I joined an agency.

Our Future - Where we're going
Dermot McGinley, Managing Director
We are one of the UK's largest specialist, privately owned recruitment businesses, providing all levels of talent to the infrastructure sector of the construction industry.
Initially based in London, we now operate nationally, helping customers based in Airports, Energy, Rail, Telecoms, Water and beyond to find the staff, labour and support services that they need.
McGinley was formed to bridge a gap within the construction labour market. Now, we’ve been recruiting for almost 40 years and our success is built on our ability to adapt and stay flexible, even in the face of recessions and evolving employment legislation.
As well as being a professional and forward-thinking recruitment business, we maintain a friendly working environment that is enjoyed by our staff and remarked upon by our customers. While staff are expected to hit targets, there is always recognition for those who deliver services to a high standard.
We have big plans for the future and believe graduates will play an integral part in making these happen. We see their ability to bring new ideas, to learn, be open minded and to work collaboratively as being the key to ensuring we achieve our goals.
If you think you'd be a good fit for our team, we'd like to hear from you.
