About Us

WHO WE ARE

1st Step Resourcing Inc was founded in 2016 by experienced recruitment professionals.  Like our sister Company 1st Step Solutions Ltd who are based in the UK, we have a passion to deliver a specialist recruitment service in the construction, MEP, Civils and consultancy sectors, with a strong focus on recruiting and mentoring consultants that understood the marketplace and putting the quality of the service above anything else.

Our vision is to reflect our UK business' ethos in the States and build new relationships with clients and candidates whilst maintaining the connections we already have and building on our market knowledge as we grow our presence in the United States.  

The way we do this is unique, both in the way we source and screen our candidates and how we deal with our clients, working to the specification of our clients’ needs and taking the time to truly understand both our clients business and role requirements and our candidate's needs and aspirations.

It is this business model that has proven successful in the UK that has driven us to deliver the same level of expertise in the United States. We have worked to attract, mentor and retain teams and consultants that are specialists in their field, who truly understand their market and are able to utilize their network and knowledge to enhance our customer’s experience.

At 1st Step Resourcing, we recognize that hiring is no longer simply hiring and that by building long-lasting relationships with our clients this can be mutually beneficial, ensuring that both our clients and candidates receive unrivalled professional recruitment experience.
