Led by our Managing Director, Jason became a recruitment consultant in 1994. Developing his knowledge and skills, he became a major influence in building one of the most significant Construction & Building Services branches within the UK in early 1998, providing over 500+ contractors per week. Ascending to become a Key Accounts Manager and securing the first PSL agreements with National Blue-Chip Construction & Engineering companies.
Jason then became a National Sales Manager where PSL deals were negotiated and secured with Building Services, Civil Engineering, Facilities Management, Interiors and Residential Contractors in England, Scotland & Wales. And subsequently promoted to Corporate Sales Manager for tier 1 and tier 2 clients. In 2005 Jason joined with a partner and launched their own recruitment business. In 2013, due to his partner's ill health, Jason agreed to an asset purchase of the company, enabling his partner to retire.
2013 saw the rebrand to VALYOU, and since then it has grown significantly from a lifestyle business to a major Construction & Engineering recruitment consultancy – achieving £1m+ year-on-year turnover in recent years.
These real-life experiences, his career interviews and placements through this sector's hay days and the turbulent times over the last few decades, hard-earned promotions, and responsibilities have given Jason and his team real insight into the processes and roles within the sector and how best to find and manage recruitment placements for the diverse type of clients. An independent, professional business with a team that focuses on clients and candidates best suited to each other. Committed to helping build beneficial relationships and providing opportunities for those looking for additional team members and those looking to place themselves in those roles, but neither of them knows the other is looking.
