We specialise in finding you the right team for the job

With over 35 years’ experience as a subbie and a contractor, SubcontractorsUK founder Garry Lambe has experienced the highs and lows of finding suitable starts, as well as recruiting the right people to work on contracts.

Now, with nearly all major house builders and developers set to double their housing production in the next three to five years, the industry looks set to face a major skills shortage. Most, if not all subcontractors are experiencing crippling resource issues even at today’s production levels, and face the daily task of recruiting and keeping hold of good quality, reliable, bricklayers and carpenters.

Until now there has been nowhere for subbies and contractors to easily find each other to arrange starts.

That’s why SubcontractorsUK was founded. We bring the two parties together online and securely publish all the necessary information about them and the work available. A contractor can quickly and easily find the team they need and a subcontractor can access the most lucrative opportunities.

Why Choose Us?


The skills shortage is a real threat to growth in the UK construction industry. The service proposed by SubcontractorsUK is set to revolutionise the way in which subcontractors can source the trades they need; and tradesman will be able to spend more of their time earning money rather than spending time chasing work opportunities. I wish SubcontractorsUK all the very best with their business.
