A new way for construction professionals to connect with contractors while cutting out the costs and constraints of a middleman has been launched online.

MandE Connect is a free service acting as a broker between contractors seeking experienced professionals and subcontractors who want project work.

“MandE Connect is like a fast-track dating agency for the trade,” said founder Steve Bancroft, who runs his own electrical contracting business, SBE Electrical. “We connect contractors directly at no cost, in contrast to the service fees of some traditional agencies.”

Contractors create their own profile and a job with specific criteria and subcontractors produce and place their own competencies and skill sets on the site for the contractor to read and decide whether or not they meet their criteria.

“The job doesn’t get posted anywhere,” Steve explains. “No-one else sees it other than the contractor who creates it and the subby they offer it to.

The subcontractor then decides whether to accept or decline the offer within a timeframe set by the contractor. Once they accept, the two parties are connected and can then contact each other to make arrangements and discuss the job.

The new online service hopes to drastically shorten the timeline of contractors sourcing qualified, and reliable subcontractors, MandE Connect states.
