ARV Solutions is formed!

In late 2003 ARV Solutions was established as a specialist recruitment agency by Jim Roach, following 14 years main-stream recruitment agency experience across construction, manufacturing and engineering.

It was time to go it alone, and create the business and environment I really wanted to work in. I was idealistic about wanting to rise above the hard sell, numbers driven, and league table mentality in recruitment. I was certain there was a more collaborative way to work, bringing clients and candidates with us, building trust and partnerships. 

I’m proud that we’ve held true to all these ideals, and had a lot of fun (and no end of hard work!) building a business where people come first, they are rewarded for collaboration and quality, and we have so many loyal clients and a great reputation.
