Hi
I'm looking to employ various trades to carry out building work for a single storey extension

I'm possibly going to diy some of it but would need trades to help with brickwork / steelwork / roof etc.

Most companies seem to want to do the whole job but I would rather get people in for the different stages of the project. Where is the best place to find people who can help as and when required, or possibly a company who will just build the shell

I'm in Staffordshire if it makes a difference

Thanks

Avoid checkatrade, ratedpeople and the likes.
For the rest it's a minefield nowadays.

Apparently there is at least one good builder in staffs.

Project management involves not just getting the right trades in, it depends on getting them in at the appropriate time. That is where a builder with his contacts helps, and where you might be at a disadvantage.

Thanks all, it' not a massive project so may just look for a small team to do it all rather than big firm. Hard to find people though at the moment.

I've got the footings in as was running out of time on the planning and struggled to get trades in

Go hang out in builder merchants. Wait for someone buying the materials that are similar to what you would need for the job, then follow them out to their van. If you like what you see, offer them a job. Their van should give some clues if they are a small business or something bigger.
