Rail Labour

With three decades of expansion and consolidation, SWGR has established a market-leading reputation for delivering high-calibre projects and people as a single, focused solution.

We supply multi-disciplinary teams to a wide range of projects, covering civil engineering, construction and disaster recovery, with a particular expertise in rail infrastructure, isolations and OHLE.

Our reputation for consistently delivering highly-skilled personnel to a number of specialist industry sectors has been achieved through our vast experience as a labour supplier and the wealth of knowledge that comes with this.

This ensures a high-quality, professional service every step of the way, with a deep understanding of the specific needs of each industry we supply people to.

Our teams are available for long-term contracts and are also available as a short-term, contingent labour solution for a wide range of companies, including principal contractors, subcontractors and infrastructure owners and operators.

Our six service centres located across the UK mean that we are always ready to supply a first-class team to any project.
