  • I honestly don't think there is a

    better recruitment company in Brisbane.

    I really can't recommend Todd Richardson enough. After moving interstate, finding the entry job into the Brisbane market was always going to be difficult but I was recommended to talk to Todd. Rec cons are often derided and with good cause but I found Todd different to others I'd spoken to and when we met, he interviewed in a way that demonstrated to me that his knowledge of the Construction market and the roles he had available, and also my worth within these companies, was above any other recruiter I'd spoken to. He is professional, yet friendly, and very genuine about what he thinks he is able to do for you. After our successful meeting, he committed to finding me a role within the industry and worked hard in finding me an outstanding position. This was achieved rapidly and as such it is the least that I can do to recommend Todd for the successful service he performed for me. I honestly don't think there is a better recruitment company in Brisbane than this one.

    Stephen Lynch, Contracts Administrator

    Candidate

  • Todd is

    a true professional.

    Todd is a true professional with his commitment to listen and adhere to his client's requirements and thus fulfils their ambitions with the attention that he provides to them through his connections and knowledge. I would have no hesitation to recommend Todd.

  • Able to listen and adapt

    to the needs of our business.

    “FKG are proud to be associated with the services of Construction People, over the past 5 years we have found them to be able to listen and adapt to the needs of our business. We are constantly trying to make FKG a point of difference to prospective employees and have found the services of Construction People dovetail well into our business mandate.”

  • They find the right people

    to pass on to their clients.

    Construction People won’t represent just anyone; they find the right people to pass on to their clients. Their objective is not just to make a quick dollar. They have always taken my feedback on board and as a result, the people they have placed for me always meet my requirements. A big thing for us is that they actually go and meet with every candidate they put forward, this is something that I find doesn’t happen with a lot of recruiters whose due diligence ends with receiving a resume and passing it on. Kylee has placed a number of candidates in my business and she walks into our office and knows everyone, she’s approachable, easy to work with and always takes my feedback on board.

    Trent Clark, Director

    GCB Constructions

  • They are proactive about

    supplying the right candidates

    The service received by Construction People is very professional. In my dealings with them, I’ve found them to be very proactive about supplying the right candidates. They listen to our requests regarding vetting candidates and only ever provide candidates who meet our requirements. They also provide relevant and sufficient information about candidates with each proposal, which saves me time.

    Morris Property Group

  • I would recommend their services

    to any job hunters.

    A major roadblock most job seekers face in this industry is finding credible leads or potential vacancies but Ian and Kylee have the leads and contacts needed to overcome this. I would recommend their services to any job hunters who are seeking a good representation in the market. They were both a pleasure to work, provided great communication during the process and are excellent industry associates to have.

    Chris Buckland, Site Manager – Icon Co

    Candidate

  • Extremely professional

    and very laid back.

    Every time I have spoken with Kylee and the rest of the team at Construction People I have found them to be extremely professional and very laid back. I’ve referred them to quite a few people I know in the construction industry because they find you great roles with great clients.

    Paul Stevenson, Safety Manager

  • It’s recruiting

    without the fluff.

    “I have always found the team at Construction People easy to deal with, professional and available when I need them. You always want to use a recruitment agency with knowledge of the people they are putting forward. Ian and Todd have a good grasp of the people in the industry and enough contacts to get the feedback needed. They strive to meet our requirements and don’t push people just because that’s who they have in their data base. It’s recruiting without the fluff.”
