About us

Guyan & Associates Ltd is the leading UK-wide recruiter for the Mechanical & Electrical Building Services industry. Organically grown, our reputation has been built on 16 years of client and candidate retention. We represent industry specialists from graduate to CEO level, and work with both prestigious market leaders and up-and-coming businesses.  

It’s not just a job to us: we live, sleep and breathe it…
After becoming disillusioned with big corporate ‘bums-on-seats’ recruiters, we decided to go it alone and create a recruitment company with strong principles. Our focus is quality, not quantity.  

Relationships matter to us…
We’re passionate about understanding the needs of both our clients and candidates – and it’s our considered, collective approach to recruitment that makes us stand out.

That, and the fact we only work with the best professional recruitment partners from across the UK. Our workforce includes specialists from the M&E Engineering and building services sectors, along with the leading recruiter for the UK nuclear marketplace.

We listen to your individual requirements…
We work hard to match your skillset, experience, and personality to the right role & company for you. This is why 100% of our clients stick with us. We also understand that salary expectations, career aspirations and the holy grail of work/life balance - can be a deal breaker.

We play the long game…
We understand that a career step up, particularly at a senior level, is a major life decision – requiring time to plan, find the perfect role and make the right choice for you. So, even if you’re content in your current position, we actively encourage you to get in touch, so we can help you consider what your next move could be, even if it is six to twelve months down the line.

Whatever your discipline, and wherever you are on the ladder, we are happy to help you find career driven roles in project management, quantity surveying, procurement, design, engineering or an executive appointment.
