MCG Construction Acquire First Choice

It’s the start of a new month, the end of another quarter and hopefully the start of something very, very exciting… we are delighted to announce that we have acquired established construction recruitment agency, First Choice!

London-based First Choice will be joining us in offering our clients and candidates an even wider ranging service offering, with First Choice’s mission and values aligning perfectly with our own MCG Construction brand, ensuring that the high standards both company’s clients are accustomed to continue uninterrupted. 

When the prospect arose for our two companies to align, we simply felt that we could not turn down the opportunity.  We believe that with First Choice’s outstanding service delivery and established client relationships built up over their 15-year history, they are the perfect business to join us in our ambitious growth plans as we continue to make waves in London, as well as on a national scale. 

Whilst First Choice will continue with their day-to-day operation uninterrupted, as part of the deal between us, we will be introducing a new Group Leadership Team to accelerate First Choice’s impressive growth.  We shall also be implementing our ISO accredited policies, procedures and processes to safeguard the business and its people via our Central Services Team based at our Watford Headquarters. Our First Choice colleagues will also join us in enjoying the industry leading company benefits and developmental opportunities that we offer to all of our staff.  

Grant Henderson, MD of MCG Construction, said: ‘First Choice has been a recruitment company that we have been watching for a while.  They have impressed us with their commitment to responsible recruitment and we felt now was the perfect time for our two businesses to align, to push both businesses toward greater heights.  First Choice’s fundamental values, putting people first, was a principal incentive for our acquisition.  We believe that by implementing a new Group Leadership Team, adding a larger central support function and maintaining First Choice’s business approach will maintain & expand upon the image and reputation of First Choice within its core market.’  

Grant Henderson further stated that: ‘At MCG Construction and now First Choice, our people are the spirit of our company. We always strive to do the right thing by our candidates, our clients, and our communities.  It is who we are and what we respect.’ ‘Moving forward, the day to day operation of First Choice will not be disrupted and their outstanding service shall continue uninterrupted to both client and candidate alike. However, behind the scenes, we hope that the greater resource that will now be available to both companies will be an instigator to a sustained period of growth, expansion and prosperity.’  

Join us and be part of something great
