We think you’ll like what we are about!

Unite People was born out of the belief that we could positively impact the lives of the individuals we engage internally and externally. We pride ourselves on a heritage of success which is testament to the consistently efficient service that we offer both our candidate and client base as well as the ability to inspire the team around us to develop their core skill that will enable them to get one step closer to their dreams.

We champion innovative thinkers, entrepreneurial flare, and work-hard play-hard type attitudes and offer the infrastructure to facilitate and co-ordinate the above whilst executing in a safe, efficient and fun environment.

The development of our people is our priority, this translates into the market place ultimately offering our clients and candidates a service that surpasses all expectations. We offer an industry leading training academy that encapsulates our culture, our processes and our secrets of success as well as continuous ‘on desk’ training offering tricks and tips as well as general support / advice. Not only that, we are a promoter of self-development so will offer access to industry recognised courses, events and seminars to help you achieve self-realisation.

Our Vision

We aim to help contribute to the development of the Construction Industry by connecting top talent with innovative businesses. We do this by comprehensively understanding the people, companies and markets we engage with.

We recognise, hard work, consistent performance and progressive attitudes which all help form the foundations of Unite People creating the platform for growth.

Executive  Club

We want to give back to our people by incentivising and rewarding performance. Each year, top performers/team’s access our Annual Summit and Quarterly 'Camps' (previously called Executive Club), which is an elite gathering held on a quarterly basis. The idea is to invigorate a level of healthy competition between peers, bettering one’s personal performances as well as stimulate teamwork across the business.

The Incentive is released on the first working day of each Quarter and will take place the last week of each quarter and ranges from away days UK wide to dining at some of London’s finest restaurant, to Comedy shows and in some cases overseas excursion.

UP Academy

Our core value ‘Put People First’ not only applies to our candidates and clients, but our employees too. As a result, we have created an industry-leading Training Academy to develop our recruiters and enable them to unlock their full potential.  

What does the Training Academy look like? 

Our ‘Bridge to Success’ requires prospective recruiters to pass both Academy (two weeks) and Probation (three months). 

The Training Academy includes modules on the following: 

UK Civil Engineering Market 

Brief History of Civil Engineering 

Unite People’s Verticals 

UK Recruitment Market  

The specific and vital role of recruitment in Civil Engineering 

What effect has Covid had on the market? 

What makes a good Sales Professional? (SAW – Sales Advancement Wheel) 

The Training Academy encourages resilience, with role-play tasks to boost confidence and prepare new recruiters for sales situations. This practical coaching, together with the Academy’s training on internal compliance and systems, providing an integral foundation for newcomers to the company. 

When asked to review the Academy, our Marketing Assistant was particularly impressed by the time invested into new starters – especially by CEO Ross Bayston – ensuring that new recruiters were brought up to speed on the industry, and that everyone developed strong working relationships from their very first week with the UPL.

Summer & Christmas Conference

We hold two annual conferences, the Winter Conference will always be held in Leeds, our HQ. The Summer Conference will take place elsewhere at a relaxed destination, for example at the coast or in the countryside.

At each event, our employees are kept informed on wider business progress, and we collectively celebrate both team and individual progresses. Following the conference is an exclusive party where all involved can let their hair down and enjoy the Unite hospitality – as ever, we work hard, and we play hard!
