Recruitment Agency specialising in Construction Professionals ?

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Ploppy

    I would be grateful if anyone can recommend a good recruitment consultant specialising in Construction Professionals. I am a Building Surveyor and have obtained a 176 SS visa for SA. I'd like to hear from anyone who's had a good experience with this type of specialist recruitment agency. As mentioned i'm tied to SA for work. I'm looking forward to your advice/ posts. Thanks.

    hi ploppy

     

    unfortunately I can't advise you on this one, we are going over in September to validate the visa.

     

    I am a construction project mananager and I will make a portfolio to take around to companies to see what the job market is. Two years ago I was in Hobart to see if I was right for the austrailian market and found that the companies thatI visited were intrested but I didn' had the visa at the time and I found that the recruitement consultant of Hays was a bit patronising when I approached him, after a bit of pushing he had a look at my CV and suddenly told me that he is happy to considder me for future roles. I think the lesson here is to persist.

     

    Have you had any luck with obtaining a copy of the Building Code as I haven't yet.

    None of the agencies worked for me. Apply direct to the Construction companies and the joint ventures. There are a few primary ones such as the HYLC Hospital project, they have a website where you register your interest. Other projects are the Urban Superway and the Seaford Rail. Try SKM, KBR, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Abigroup, McConnell Dowell, John Holland, Hansen Yuncken, Leighton Contractors, Leed, Watpac, Guidera O'Connor, McMahon, BHP Billiton, Santos, Jacobs Engineering .... to name just a few.

    Him again - No I haven't had luck gaining a copy of the building codes either.
