We work with reputable organisations who need efficient and effective recruitment support to find highly skilled technical professionals for engineering, construction and managerial positions.

The business, a rebranding of Claremont Building Services, has emerged from the long association and shared values of its founders Bob Lethaby and Paul Cook, a pairing with over fifty years of combined recruitment insight.

After working together way back in the 1990’s, Bob and Paul remained in touch as long-term business associates with Bob forming Claremont Building Services in the M&E sector in 1997, whilst Paul spent over twenty years heading up the Civil and Structural recruitment division for Thomas Telford Ltd, the Institution of Civil Engineers recruitment division.

Lethaby & Cook is the expansion, rebranding and enhancement of Claremont Building Services Ltd, adding Civil & Structural engineering expertise to the established M&E division. This rebranding provides a name compatible to both sectors whilst maintaining the trading history and goodwill of Claremont Building Services Ltd.
