New director Richard Lofthouse drives PSR’s strategic growth

07 Jul 2016


Bringing over 16 years of recruitment expertise in the built environment, Richard Lofthouse joins PSR Solutions from Whiteley-based Fusion People, at an exciting time of growth, expansion and opportunity.

As Business Unit Director, Richard’s focus is to drive strategy and deliver a new direction for PSR across its core recruitment sectors; Civil Engineering & Infrastructure, Mechanical & Electrical and Residential construction.

Richard is looking forward to;

“Working with like-minded people to deliver a service of envy to both clients and candidates as well as exploiting new business opportunities in a changing market.”

Challenges facing the construction recruitment industry

Richard is acutely aware of existing legislative issues facing both clients and candidates, a situation exacerbated since the dawn of Brexit, and how these add pressure for agencies to remain compliant.

In addition, he states the increasing skills shortage across all disciplines within the industry will likely result in an increase in demand for temporary workers over permanent requirements.

Why PSR?

Having established a strong foothold in the recruitment market over the last decade and with a buoyant expansion timeline over the forthcoming one, Richard states that PSR has:

“Grown through the drive and dedication of individuals who share a similar view of my own to the recruitment process and how it should be delivered.”

PSR has always worked closely with clients to deliver an excellent service throughout the recruitment lifecycle, including providing a valuable Aftercare service, and this is something that Richard sees as crucial to furthering the development of the organisation’s deep industry network of professionals.

Richard has worked across the UK in London, Birmingham and Manchester and will now be based at PSR’s head office in Stafford.
