Ricky Robson's bio
As Operations Director for MCG Construction, I lead the recruitment division of the business, working closely alongside our logistics division.
I manage our 4 offices in the UK and look to drive the business forward whilst always improving what we do. I still get involved in recruitment as I think being hands-on and knowing the market is key in our industry. I tend to get involved in senior-level appointments on a permanent and freelance basis but when the team needs an extra set of hands I'll fill any job that's going! I still get a buzz and enjoy filling jobs but my passion now is sitting down with our clients on a strategic level and helping them with my knowledge of this market.
I have 15 years of experience in construction recruitment, with my career starting at Hill McGlynn. Over the years I have concentrated in London but in the last 2 years clients have approached me to help them out internationally - and now I have covered and filled jobs all across Europe.
My favourite thing about my job is meeting and speaking with new people. I also love fixing problems and coming up with solutions both for MCG Construction and especially for our clients. I am and always have been super competitive so if it's us vs another agency I relish this opportunity to show them why we are a partner of choice.
When I'm not at work, you'll find me either at home with my 2 sons, Rocco and Rai, or playing sports. As above I'm super competitive and still think I can play football but also box to keep fit. During COVID I decided to take up cycling and now cycle 90 miles a week to get into work. However, the main reason I do so much exercise is due to my love of anything sweet.
