Construction and Property

In today's Global marketplace with increased competition from emerging players, large construction, property and building materials companies are looking at innovative ways of maintaining growth and improving quality while focusing on bottom-line results.

To remain competitive, big construction, property and building materials companies are growing operations through mergers and acquisitions, while relying more heavily on process improvement initiatives to streamline the work. In turn, smaller players are challenged to compete against the larger, more capital-flush companies. These trends are fueling an increasing need for construction, property and building materials companies to look outside the industry for talent for their executive jobs and executive recruitment needs.

Today’s construction, property and building materials companies require highly experienced, insightful and motivated leaders to propel the industry forward. We understand this.

We have an outstanding track-record of recruiting senior professionals for a wide range of organisations across all aspects of the Construction and Built Enviornment life-cycle; supporting a range of clients including:

  • Architects
  • Consulting Engineers
  • Contractors
  • Cost Management Consultants
  • Developers
  • Facilities Management Contractors
  • Owner/Operators
  • Real Estate Consultancies
  • Programme Management Consultants
  • Sub-Contractors

Our construction executive search consultants' intimate knowledge of each of these marketplaces mean they are ideally-placed to source high-calibre individuals who will enable you to meet the demands of a challenging commercial climate. They identify and attract people who provide greater depth and flexibility to your operations - professionals who deliver exceptional results and add greater value to your organisation. 

In such a dynamic sector, attracting the best people means the difference between success and failure. We work with experienced professionals across a broad range of sectors. Our extensive network of contacts and relationships enables us to source the finest talent in the marketplace.

Our assignments within the construction sector involve executive search and recruitment for senior and middle management positions across all construction disciplines - including; commercial, construction, engineering and technical, plus our Infrastructure executive search experts are well equipped to identify and recruit leading talent for board-level and functional leadership roles.
