About Us

We provide top quality, highly skilled labour
resources on projects within the civils, rail and
tunnelling industries.

Reliable Contractors have been providing contingency labour supporting tier one contractors on major infrastructure projects for over 40 years. As a family run business integrity has been incorporated into all our business relationships and has been the foundation on which all our decisions have been made. Our outstanding safety performance and retention of our staff is a direct result of our continual investment in their training and well-being and the open and collaborative partnerships we cultivate with our clients.

The last ten years has seen more tier one companies sharing resource and responsibility, examples of our experience can be seen with the joint ventures on a host of Crossrail projects. Our extensive involvement here has demonstrated the benefits of working together as one team whilst showing respect and understanding of the values and cultural differences of each individual company. Honest and open communication throughout the whole supply chain, engaging communities surrounding our projects including local authorities, charities, local training and employment organisations has been paramount to our success and longevity.

Regional and National Coverage

Reliable have two well established office locations in central London and Kent which support the supply of labour to the UK’s major infrastructure projects. These offices support our administration and payroll functions for our workforce. Feeding into these offices and being mindful of our need for more sustainable solutions within construction we have introduced our unique model of setting up Regional Resource Centres/Community Hubs dedicated to improving our industries reputation and increasing legacy targets for each of our projects.
Many years of experience have led us to our alternative approach to service delivery which encourages community involvement and partnership and a more efficient and effective use of our resources. This more resilient way of working within the community allows us to adapt to changing circumstances surrounding our projects. Our Regional Resource Centres/Community Hubs offer a more accessible local base for local people. This gives us a platform to promote the positive benefits of the construction process in their area and encourages people to call in to find out what’s going on. We have found that our holistic approach also lends itself to more open and honest communication surrounding interviews for prospective candidates and their subsequent training activities and helps to keep economic activity local.

Our Community hubs are in themselves a good use of local assets, and they support our employment model for being an enterprising and resilient community organisation.

Collaborative Working
in Partnership

 

Collaborative relationships with main contractors, with the onus on both parties forming relationships based on trust and shared outcomes, has been an essential part of our success. The last five years our industry has seen an even greater step change where the expectation is for all members of the supply chain to work together to contribute towards a long-term sustainable legacy on all our major infrastructure projects.

Reliable Contractors Limited, economic, environmental and social value has always been immersed within our culture of integrity and our continuous involvement with Tier one Contractors has been instrumental in our social sustainability journey. Our strategic office locations give us a great advantage to engage with local colleges and employment brokerages offering diversity, fairness and inclusion on each of our major projects. Our Training and Skills Coordinators works closely with our existing workforce identifying skills shortages in our project pipeline and apprenticeship learning pathways suitable to upskill many of our directly employed workers.

“Our extensive experience and commitment to safety have made us one of the
UK’s most trusted and reliable suppliers of labour within the civil engineering,
tunnelling and rail industries.”
