Construction and Greenfield Projects
We understand the construction sector and the challenges it faces, including skilled labour shortages, project management performance, and productivity and profitability issues. We also appreciate the fast-paced nature of the sector and the future demands on construction companies. Specialising in working directly with Directors and Heads of Talent Acquisition in a complementary and unison manner, we understand that most challenges are solved by obtaining the right mid to senior-level professionals. The fast-paced nature of the sector means that existing roles are evolving to encompass more complexity, and new roles are created to reflect advancements in materials, technology and best practice.
With an extensive amount of experience in recruiting and managing searches in the construction sector, we are well placed to help solve your recruitment challenges from an executive search perspective. We have conducted executive searches for a wide range of mid to senior-level professional roles, from Finance, Commercial, IT and Project Directors, to Quantity Surveyors, Geospatial and Technical Managers. Our search methodology is transferable to any professional construction role as we work closely with the Hiring Manager to ensure that we are shortlisting the perfect candidates for the role.
Not only do we conduct searches for construction clients, but we also offer bespoke consulting. For example, we have conducted more than 15 comprehensive research projects for one of the UK's top 20 tier one construction companies in London. The challenge facing our clients from a consulting perspective often lies in having the capacity to run Talent Mapping and Engagement Projects, Succession Planning and Executive Search concurrently.
Some of our recent consulting research projects have included; Director of People, and Head of Talent, Group Financial Controller and Senior Commercial Director. These projects comprised Talent Mapping and Engagement research exercises; the insights from our research has led directly to our client filling several senior board level positions and ensured that our client saved time and money from their recruitment budget.
Our Value Proposition document demonstrates this from the perspective of a consulting Talent Mapping Project for four construction professional roles: Project Manager, Planner, Quantity Surveyor and Design Manager Talent Mapping.
