With over 27 years Building Industry experience, I felt it was time to have a recruitment specialist within the industry who came from the industry it serves.
During my years I dealt with many different agencies. The one thing I found was, none of the recuiters I dealt with came from the industry.
"The issue I had was finding someone from an agency who understands my needs as a Client and as a Candidate.
Q. How can someone who does not understand the industry meet my needs?
A. Simple, they cannot.
I have come from a trade background in Scotland. I decided to move into sales within the building industry and worked on some pretty spectacular projects.
Using my previous experience on the tools and in industry related sales roles, dealing with Architects, Engineers, Project Managers, Developers, Estimators, Quantity Surveyors, Manufacturers, OS&H, Government bodies, Manufacturers and Merchants through my years and involved in technical roles on projects like a Nuclear Submarine base in West Coast of Scotland, Floating Jetties for Submarine repairs, Multi-Storey Construction, Major Roading and Rail projects, Tunnels and Bridges around the UK and New Zealand.
I feel using my experience can offer you a service which understands your needs and will provide you with top quality candidates and interviews with leading companies that match your needs.
"This is what I bring to recruiting within the industry. Building Recruitment understands your needs as a client and as a candidate.
We look to help and support you to meet your goals and achieve success together.
This is what makes Building Recruitment the success it is today."
I am active within Master Builders and have been involved for over 12 years with 8 years as a committee member of the West Auckland branch and was Branch President for 4 years. Now I have joined the Board of Auckland Registered Master Builders Association.
"I believe it is important to put something back into the industry and I hope with my involvement within Master Builders I am doing so".
