Getting in touch with a construction recruitment agencies can be an important part of your life. If you work in construction, across any of the various sectors (sales and marketing, construction, facilities management and logistics), there is never a bad time to call an agency and see if there is anything better available to help pay the bills.
Agencies often have expertise that jobseekers lack and the construction arena is no different. They have teams that operate in niche markets and in doing so can generally have people specially dedicated to your market, meaning that you have highly targeted work offers. They can cater to a broad spectrum of company sizes and a variety of jurisdictions, equating to a vast amount of different jobs to offer.
The sales and marketing departments are for people looking for work in a more white collar area of the business. These people are responsible for the selling contracts to various clients and companies. Their marketing departments are responsible for their image and communications with the outside world, liaising with their media planners and creative companies.
The construction departments are for the people who are on the ground level, the day-to-day operators. The drills, the forklift operators, cement mixers; all the tough stuff. If you want to work for a different boss at a different construction company, then its time to contact a construction recruitment agencies.
Facilities management are the guys who manage the operations and even on a continued basis after construction is complete. Again, this sector is covered by the recruitment agency.
Finally the logistics sector. This is all about strategy and contingency planning; again if you fall under this remit then you can also contact an agency if you are looking for a change of direction.
