Our purpose

We aim to deliver specialist, strategic recruitment methods to clients on a nationwide basis. We strive to help our clients overcome labour/staffing problems either on a short-term or ongoing basis and be the discreet, silent labour/staffing partner to contractors throughout the UK, on an as required basis.

Our guarantee

We are extremely confident in our ability to supply the correct quality of labour at the first time of asking, however we are also honest enough to acknowledge that we are dealing with people and on the odd occasion, things go wrong.

As a result of this, we offer an 8-hour guarantee, whereby in the unlikely event that any labour sent to site proves unsuitable within the first 8 hours, we will not charge for their time.

Nick, Owner, Medium Sized Shopfitting Company

"We have worked with Approved M&E to source Plumbers and Pipefitters, often at short notice, sometimes with specific needs like COMCAT and Commercial Gas Safe. We have been very impressed with the skilled first fix team Approved supplied. The team at Approved is attentive and we recommend them and their workers"

Ron, Contracts Manager, Main Contractor

"After the initial three projects where we have sourced labour through your company, especially the seven bedroom house in Surrey, you are now the labour hire agency we will call. Great service levels and great labour supplied. We are very impressed"

Andy, Director, Medium Sized Commercial and Domestic Electrical Contractor

"My company has utilised Approved M&E Ltd for the last 5 years and as yet we have had no reason to look elsewhere when resourcing for our sites across the M62 Corridor. We always receive an honest and informed response to any enquiries. My personal reason for sticking with Approved was that they seem to understand our requirements due to specialising in our industry."

Anne, Labour Manager, Large National Shopfitting Company

"Several years ago we gave Approved an opportunity to fill some very last minute, temporary positions, for Joiners with specific experience of kitchen and bedroom display installation. The team worked late into the night to source some fantastic guys and we have never looked back. Approved is now an integral part of our annual labour planning. When we work with them on shopfitting projects and kitchen and bedroom display, they understand the different skills and tools required, always sourcing exactly what we need, when we need it. For short notice emergencies they have been second to none too."

For many years we have helped our clients deliver successful projects with some great companies:
