deliberately different.

  • With a long pedigree in ‘best of class’ white-collar construction recruitment, we’re proud to launch our new, innovative brand – Build Space.

    The name is new, but in fact, we’ve always epitomised being fresh and different. From the start, we’ve laid a bold hand on our specialisms, allowing us to break from a larger brand and form our own entity.

    Build Space’s focus on technology and relationships is second to none. We have a suite of products, while being agile enough to build unique solutions for you. That means we’re able to make more guarantees than any other talent partner in each of our key spaces.
  • Our toolkit is peerless. With A.I, machine learning, chat bots and apps, we have the broadest reach for both clients and candidates. By pushing the specialist construction space forward, we break assumptions of what can and can’t be done to find the right talent.

    Maybe you’re a candidate seeking to be represented by a market leader. Or perhaps you’re an employer looking for talent in the ever-changing world of recruitment in London and beyond. Either way, we are the deliberate answer.

    Let’s talk, then – what makes you different?
