Construction industry experts committed to providing workforce solutions.

Since 2010 Approved Workforce has been providing the skills and expertise that our clients need to complete their projects, by supplying temporary contract labour, on an as required, hourly rate basis, throughout the UK.

As we're headed by a team with a combined total of over 70 years' experience in construction recruitment, we know how to supply the right person for the job from our database of over 100,000 workers. And with backgrounds in the construction industry itself many of our consultants know first-hand what is most important to our clients.

Our service is backed up by our company values of honesty, respect, positivity, accountability and teamwork. So you can rely on us to act with integrity towards both our staff and our clients.

Above all, our aim is not to be the biggest or the cheapest provider of temporary workers. But we do aim to be the best, the most trusted and the most reliable.

8 Hour Guarantee

Our eight hour guarantee

We always use our skills, knowledge and experience to ensure that the right person is supplied for the job. But occasionally it doesn't work out quite as well as it could.

That's why we offer clients the guarantee that if any temporary employee proves to be unsuitable within the first 8 hours of starting for them we will not charge for their time. We will also act quickly to find a more suitable replacement.

Constructing A Building


We have established long-standing relationships with many of our clients and contributed to all sizes and kinds of projects in a wide range of sectors including retail, education and the public sector.

These are just a few of those clients say about Approved Workforce:

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.

David, Contracts Manager, Medium Sized Owner Managed Building Company

Approved Trades continually source many Bricklayers, Plasterers, Joiners, Painters, Tilers, Labourers and Foreman for us, often at short notice, for our new build private client houses, pub reactive maintenance, schools and much more. Our work ranges between residential and major commercial refurbishment and new build, the team at Approved clearly understand the differences between the projects and source what we need with minimum fuss

Lionel Fear, Project Manager Jehu Group

I have used Approved since 2015, and due to the professional, reliable and consistent level of service they have provided, I've never needed to pick up the phone to another agency

Graham, Contracts Manager, Medium Sized Building Solutions Company

Approved source many Joiners for us, often at very short notice, when we are building new private client houses, working on pub refurbishment, schools and most recently on the refurbishment of one of our own listed buildings in Headingley. With such a diverse range of joinery work, which includes bench joinery on complex staircases, the quality of the Joiners is impressive. The team at Approved clearly understand the experience required so that we only ever get the right type of skilled Joiner for the job in hand
