Daniel Owen Ltd started in 1986 as a small recruitment agency providing jobs for blue collar workers in the construction industry.  In September 2015 it rebranded to become Daniel Owen Ltd – here’s our story:

Our Chairman and CEO have remained the same since Workmates (now Daniel Owen Ltd) was founded in 1986.  Brothers Robin and Philip Andrews created the company after seeing the need for a reliable and trusted provider of workers to the construction industry.  As the company grew, and with considerable knowledge of the construction and engineering markets, it became clear there was a requirement for a specialist team of professional and technical recruitment consultants; so Daniel Owen for white collar roles was formed in 1995.

Since the beginning the company has retained its focus on the construction, engineering and maintenance industries believing this to allow the teams of recruiters and consultants to deliver the best service possible to these markets.  Over the course of three decades we have built up a unique and vast database of quality candidates, some of whom have been working with the company since the early days.  We continue to enjoy long standing and valued relationships with some of the country’s largest and oldest construction companies, engineering companies and local authorities.

We’re incredibly proud of our heritage and successes, and it is great to look back, but Daniel Owen firmly believes the best is yet to come.  The company has its sights firmly set on sustained growth whilst delivering the best possible care to clients, candidates and colleagues.
