Life is too short to waste time. We invest our time in family, community, and our network


Covid-19 response from Construction-Recruitment

​Construction-Recruitment is pivoting to help our clients in the construction industry through these uncertain times as much as we can.

There is no doubt that it is an employer's market out there right now.

But with a much higher applicant to vacancy ratio, engaging the very best talent available from the pool is an even bigger job than normal and a time-consuming drain on resources within a business unless managed effectively.

Find out how we are offering tailored solutions to save our clients valuable time and add value in different areas of the recruitment process.


Giving back- Community

Construction-Recruitment donates a percentage of every fee generated to a charity or worthy organisation

Your company may have its own good cause you would like to help.

Otherwise, our charity partner - Autism Swim will benefit from us doing business together.
