How It All Began…

While working on a wind turbine 25 metres above the German North Sea, Directors Lee & Michael had the idea to setup a Rope Access Recruitment Business…and RAMP UK was born.

Built from the ground up by our Managing Directors Lee Thompson & Michael O’Gara, both have extensive experience within the rope access industry across the globe and boast an impressive portfolio.



Initial Concept

Realising a gap in the market, they set to work

While working in the rope access industry, Lee and Michael found themselves constantly being contacted by the procurement officers from the companies they were working for themselves asking if they knew anyone who could fill a position on other jobs around the world. Realising a gap in the market and a chance to help other rope access technicians with finding work, they setup RAMP UK Ltd.



Build Up Relationships

Managing the day to day enquiries of recruitment requests from around the world.

As the company continued to grow, requests for rope access technicians started to come in from around the world. Oil & Gas, Wind Energy, Industrial and Construction companies who knew the lads from working in the industry themselves were now beginning to ask for the their help in finding the right person for the jobs they had.

Oil & Gas

No truer word is spoken than, “The right man for the job” when it comes to Rope Access. Having worked across the globe in different environments, this gave Lee & Mousey a perfect insight to what type of person it would take to work in any given field. This allowed RAMP to make sure that the right person was recommended to each individual job that came in from around the world.



Training Facilities Now Open

With the recruitment side of things now up and running, it was time to get the IRATA Membership in the bag!

After moving into their new premises and fitting out a state of the art £30,000 training facility, in January 2019 RAMP were awarded the highly commended IRATA Membership! In doing so, RAMP became one of the only rope access companies to offer both recruitment and training under one roof.
