Permanent and contract recruitment

Permanent and contract recruitment

MDR Associates is a breath of fresh air in the recruitment sector – with a real ‘consultative’ approach and a passion for getting things right.


Over 40 years’ combined experience

MDR Associates boasts an efficient, experienced team which knows the recruitment business inside out.

We’re a very ‘personal’ business, treating people like people – working hard to understand the needs of both candidates and employers. We feel this is essential; it’s the only way to ensure the ‘right fit’ for both. But it requires care and attention to detail – a quality approach to recruitment that, these days, is all too rare.

In it for the long term

Our clients tell us that one thing which really sets us apart is the way we don’t focus on the ‘quick fix’ but solve the real issues.

Finding the right job is one of the most important things a person can do. And, for organisations, building the right team is one of the most vital steps towards business success. So, for us, recruitment is something that’s always seen in this context – and perhaps that’s why we build real long-term relationships with organisations of all sizes (including those impressive blue-chips) and with people who really care about their careers.

Specialist sectors

No one can be good at everything. For this reason, we focus on several key sectors – sectors in which we’ve built considerable expertise.

We work with organisations to resource contract roles and fill permanent jobs across the following sectors: built environment; rail and infrastructure; chemicals and petrochemicals; life sciences; nuclear; oil and gas; power and energy; water and utilities sectors. We don’t just service these sectors – we excel in these sectors.
