We have over 15 years of combined experience in recruiting within Australia’s engineering sector, specialising in Building Services, growing our network, and conducting the research for you. Our network ranges from boutique building services design consultancies, to national tier 2’s and global tier 1 multi disciplinaries. It also extends to subcontractors, builders, developers, and client-side consultancies. We’ve spent our time getting to know these companies, inside out and out; their strengths, weaknesses, project portfolios, working cultures, development opportunities, working from home policies, when they recruit and what type of engineers they typically recruit for.
When you come to us, we take similar care in getting to know you as an engineer. Your career plans and what you want to achieve, your goals and ambitions, and what drives you. We listen to the type of employer you want to work for, the leader you want to mentor you, the types of projects you want to work.
From here, we use our ‘research’, and industry knowledge to advise companies that we recommend you meet with. Utilising our network, we’ll reach out to these companies in a confidential manner, with a view of setting up an initial introductory chat. And then the fun begins. We’ll guide you through the interview process, giving you tips and recommendations along the way, and when it comes to it, negotiate the best possible package for you. Should you find a position that suits you, we’ll guide you through the resignation and subsequent onboarding process.
We’ll then be on throughout your career, acting as your eyes and ears on the market, and been on hand to offer advice around how to continue to build on your career.
Over 90% of the building services jobs that we place candidates in aren’t active jobs and are ‘off-market’. Our client is always looking for good engineers and using our market knowledge, we’ll make introductions to potential employers that align with your goals and ambitions, not just live jobs.
Yes, in fact, we have helped many engineers, at all levels, make the move from overseas, providing they have a valid visa (permanent residency or working holiday visa is most common). In some cases, we can assist those that need visa sponsorship before they relocate to Australia.
