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.


As construction specialists, we understand the industry’s unique regulatory requirements and the complexities of keeping workers safe. Our consultants can advise on all aspects of compliance, from CDM regulations to IR35 changes.

Temporary to Permanent

Try before you buy! Convert our interim, fixed term, or contract staff to permanent hires, and pay only a pro-rata fee. With temp to perm, you can assess candidates on the job, simplify hiring, and improve cultural fit and retention.

Project- Based Hiring

Our experts can quickly source skilled contractors to meet your project timelines and goals. With short notice periods and various payment models, including CIS and limited company options, we offer the flexibility and agility you need.

Single Worker Appointments

When you need the right person fast, we offer contract, fixed term, and interim options. Fixed-term appointments are ideal for maternity cover or ad-hoc needs. Our interim staffing delivers the senior expertise you need to drive change.
