As one of the first recruitment businesses to specialise in Mechanical, Electrical and Instrumentation recruitment, NRL have been leading this sector of the market for over 30 years. Specialist trades recruitment requires a responsive, efficient and fully compliant service at all times. From a network of branches which are located across the UK, we can source suitably qualified and experienced workers on a national and international basis.

Our experience covers both industrial and commercial sectors, including;

  • Hospitals
  • Petrochemical plants
  • Power stations
  • Refineries
  • Schools
  • Shop fits

NRL recruit over 5000 workers annually and manage the supply of over 600 workers at any time. The growing success of this division is a reflection of the relationships we forge with our clients.

We have preferred or sole supplier status with the majority of our clients, many of whom have used our services for over 30 years. Our company values are appreciated by our clients and are integral to our long term approach to become their resourcing partner of choice.


All of our consultants are APSCo trained and specialise in the ME&I sector. We spend time out in the field to gain an understanding of the industries in which we work, and where necessary we can set up a permanent site presence to manage contracts.

NRL were one of the first recruitment businesses to gain ECIA employment business accreditation and we have since enjoyed success on a range of NAECI contracts. Our membership allows us to engage workers on a contract of employment, which reduces administration and employment costs for our clients. NAECI projects we have supported include;

  • Ferrybridge FGD
  • Immingham CHP
  • Pembroke CCGT

Having managed such contracts, many of our staff are now proven NAECI experts.

Each of our clients are allocated a dedicated account manager who will be the first point of contact for all matters including; vacancies, worker management and invoicing queries. We also work hard to understand your HSE policies and contractually enforce with our workers.

We continually monitor the performance and HSE compliance of our workers, as well as the quality of our service. Client feedback is of the utmost importance to NRL and is integral to our drive to remain the first choice for contractors in this sector.
