Skillforce is a full service labor contractor in Maryland who provides guaranteed, reliable craftsmen to contractors who need them, where and when they need them, for as long as they need them.
Founded in 2003, Skillforce was created as a response to the construction industry’s challenges with recruiting and hiring flexible skilled craftsmen. Rob Cossaboon founded Skillforce with the goal to create a strong construction staffing company that encompassed two main themes: creating a team environment with strong leadership, and a business culture that inspired employees to strive to be their best.
We have affiliations with the best trade associations and stand by our reputation as the best construction labor staffing company in the industry.
Unlike temporary agencies, Skillforce only provides skilled tradesmen who seek full-time work on projects, not one-day assignments. We provide long-term employment, complete with benefits, to craftsmen seeking work and provide contractors with skilled, dependable workers.
At Skillforce, we pride ourselves on building long-term partnerships with both our clients and our craftsmen.

Becoming a Skillforce client allows you to react quickly to changes in your manpower needs in order to keep your projects running on schedule, while saving you valuable man hours you would have been spending hiring new personnel. Additionally, you’ll mitigate your risks and costs of unemployment and worker’s compensation.
With more than 80+ years of combined construction industry experience in Maryland (MD), the Skillforce management team has a proven background providing skilled craftsmen to the construction industry. We treat you with white-glove customer service, staying involved in the project from start to finish.
Customer Service Guarantee
Skillforce’s foundation is deeply rooted in the philosophy of forming partnerships that last. It’s common in the construction staffing industry to view clients as strictly numbers on a page, not as companies run by people. We’re here to change that.
With our Maryland competitors, too much of your production time is taken up by slow responses and an unclear chain of communication. When you work with Skillforce, you are given an account representative that handles all of your needs in order to eliminate miscommunications and costly delays. Regardless of the question or where the project is located, the designated account representative is your go-to to deliver the results you want.
