Multi-recruiter Barker Ross has launched a new rail division, headed up by divisional manager Geoff Burman. The company has also achieved Link-up accreditation, which is the UK's rail industry supplier registration & qualification scheme.

Burman, who was previously with Reed’s specialist property & construction team covering construction, rail and civil engineering, says:
“This new division is off to a flying start as Barker Ross already has a large client base in civil engineering, including many companies who are operating in the rail industry. So now we have Link-up we can just expand our business with those clients as well as attracting new business.”

“In our Milton Keynes and Nottingham offices we are already busy supplying existing customers with temporary and permanent staff for their rail businesses.”

Antony Rowe, managing director at Barker Ross said:
“We have been looking to add this sector to complement our civil engineering and construction businesses for some time. It is another sector where we know we can offer a ‘second to none’ service to our clients who trust us to provide the right staff at the right time.”

Link-up is the UK rail industry supplier registration and qualification scheme. Used extensively by procurement, engineering, safety and quality professionals as well as organisations who need to comply with European Procurement Legislation and Railway Group Standards.

For those looking to recruit in construction, civil engineering, rail, housing or energy, Barker Ross offers a proven track record in providing staff to main contractors, sub-contractors and developers in the private and public sectors.
