Our Story.

Construction People is a recruitment consultancy operating in the built environment.

In 2008, we opened our doors to Brisbane, operating from the home of our Company Director, Ian Richardson. Since then, we’ve been dedicated to advising, connecting and creating mutually beneficial relationships for the people we work with.

Ten years down the track, we now connect candidates and clients along the East Coast with dedicated offices in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney.

Our Services.

When we first set the direction for Construction People, our goal was not to connect people with opportunities but to connect the best people with the best opportunities.

And we realised, to achieve this, we too needed to be the best at what we do. So, rather than dip our finger in many pots, we set our sights on recruiting exclusively for the built environment, and building a strong knowledge base and network within it. Many years later, we now understand the industry and its people inside and out and have been fortunate to assist numerous candidates and clients in achieving their own career and company goals.
