Daniel Owen (formerly Workmates & Daniel Owen Ltd) is a professional recruitment consultancy working with a number of the UK’s largest companies in construction, engineering, rail and local authorities – we also pride ourselves on offering the same level of service to our smaller clients too.  Our reputation is built upon the specialised and trusted service we deliver.  Over the past three decades we have built long and trusted relationships with our clients, who return to us because we make finding qualified, vetted candidates less time consuming for them.  With a database built over many years full of temporary and permanent candidates, we have a great network to draw upon when fulfilling client requests. 

We understand the needs of our clients because we focus on our strengths; our vast knowledge and experience of the requirements of roles within the Built Environment.  Since the beginning we have maintained a focus on the construction and engineering industries believing always that building a knowledge and expertise in a specific area will add most value to our clients and candidates.  We are passionate about delivering the best possible service to the organisations and people we work with.


  • Expert consultants. Instead of sales people, we look for industry experts often with first-hand experience of working within the sector themselves. This way, our service is based on genuine passion and a keen interest in clients’ projects. 
  • The extra care we take. By taking the time to get to know our clients, both on and offsite, we offer proactive, insightful support that spans the entire business.  
  • Trusted, proven specialists.  A job is only as good as the candidates we source, so we take great care to build networks of hard-working, trustworthy people to carry out every client job to the highest of standards. 
  • Our reputation for fairness. We’re known for treating our candidates fairly, always paying them on time and helping them achieve their long-term career aspirations. 
  • A business based on integrity. We’re proud that our rich history underpins all that we do, allowing us to continue to grow our truly modern business.
