Who we are

TRS Staffing Solutions was launched in 1984 to source and supply engineering staff for the international projects of a leading US Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Maintenance (EPCM) contractor. The company needed a large, flexible workforce of contractors, with a focus on technical and professional skills, and TRS Staffing Solutions was created to fulfil this requirement.

TRS Staffing Solutions’ reputation for tracking down engineering candidates with hard-to-find skillsets soon attracted the attention of other organisations in the EPCM market, and TRS Staffing Solutions began to steadily build its client base. This growth has continued and now includes owners, operators, EPC companies and consultancies. TRS is proud to count among its established clients many of the world's leading companies and corporations.

Our international offices were created as a natural development to help TRS Staffing Solutions source and supply skilled staff in key global locations. Today, we support project sites across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas and Australia.

As a specialist engineering recruitment agency, TRS Staffing Solutions has several thousand contractors engaged around the world, working on contracts ranging from multi-billion dollar mega projects to small, family engineering companies. We also operate a managed services or vendor management program in several of our international locations, giving our clients an added depth and breadth of candidate resources to meet their ongoing and future requirements.

Your nearest TRS Staffing Solutions office has access to a local, regional and worldwide talent pool, as well as longstanding networks of invaluable contacts. Our recruitment specialists are ready to advise and support you with every aspect of your professional, engineering and technical staffing needs.
