Who We Are

A Specialist Engineering and Facilities Management Recruitment Business - With a Difference!

Tobias Recruitment Group C.I.C.

Tobias Recruitment Group CIC is essentially a recruitment business. We’re young yet ambitious and specialise in the placement of permanent and contract staff into the engineering and facilities management industries. The difference with us is that we were specifically launched to be a social enterprise!

Our founder Leon Coates has worked within the recruitment industry for nearly 15 years and during that time, he noticed that wherever or whoever he worked for, it was all about profits. So, with the onset of Covid-19, he decided it’s time to give back rather than take out – and Tobias Recruitment Group CIC was formed.

Before starting the business, we thought long and hard about how we can give back and the areas that need the help most and, as a result, came up with a three-year plan to introduce one key service each year which we feel are urgently needed.

Social Enterprise Business

Working on a recent restructuring required the participation of four agencies to assist in finding and placing facility technicians for a bespoke role within the education sector. Of the three Leon was by far the most productive working hard with me to understand the requirements of the site and find suitable candidates. His passion and drive for the site was invaluable in providing correct candidates for interview ensuring a high level of compatible selection following his rigorous pre-submission vetting.
