Overcoming Challenges by Always Striving for Excellence

Overcoming Challenges by Always Striving for Excellence


Our Founding Directors


After working together at Hays Montrose and Rullion, in 2008, Lewis, and James thought, “…we can do this on our own…” With the country in recession, our timing was challenging, but we walked the streets of London and won work. From humble beginnings in a small office in Shoreham-by-Sea, by 2011 we had employed 5 staff and were paying 500 operatives each week. 

As Founders, we have not forgotten the stresses and challenges of the early years, when we all had very young families and staff depending on us – we remember working crazy long hours, visiting huge numbers of building sites, servicing clients’ requirements to the best of our ability and respecting the operatives working on site – these are all values we instil in our staff today.

We used our combined knowledge, experience and sheer determination to succeed, and now the Shore Group employs over 100 staff in 7 locations, pays 2500 operatives each week and we have a group turnover in excess of £172M. In 2018, we registered 14,652 new temporary staff and processed 84,941 timesheets throughout the year.  

We place people into temporary and permanent positions all over the country, working with clients on prestigious developments such as renovations at the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Mandarin Oriental, the Amex Stadium, Kings Cross Station, Terminal 2 at Dubai International Airport and ITV MediaCityUK. 

We have built a successful brand, and a reputation for being able to provide everything a project needs in terms of staffing. We are now servicing other industries including retail, telecoms, mechanical and electrical, rail and aviation, interiors and fitouts, and projects requiring high levels of security clearance. 

We have ambitious plans to double the company by 2025, creating more opportunities for our current staff and able to offer more services to our clients. We plan to open new locations and expand into other market sectors, as well as producing innovative solutions for our clients and candidates.
