About ConsultANZ

ConsultANZ specialises solely in the provision of Recruitment Services for the Civil Engineering and Construction industries in Australia, New Zeland and the Pacific. We work for many of Australasia’s main contractors and specialist contractors on projects, placing people in sectors such as:

  • Civil Engineering        
  • Piling, Foundations and Ground Engineering

  • Building
  • Construction
  • Survey
  • Rail

ConsultANZ is one of the very few Recruitment Agencies nationally to secure an On-hire Visa Licence. This Licence means we can assist in facilitating offshore recruitment, not only sourcing the correct candidates but also obtaining visas. Our Clients, in conjunction with ConsultANZ, can select skilled, qualified and experienced staff located overseas and bring them to Australia.

We can’t be beaten on technical knowledge

ConsultANZ recruits exclusively for the Civil Engineering and Construction Market. Unlike other recruitment agencies which service many sectors, we are solely focused on the civil engineering and construction market. As a result, we are experts in recruiting roles across the board from junior through senior executive positions.

A key differentiator for the ConsultANZ business is that number of our recruiters are either qualified surveyors or engineers who have hands-on project-based experience in Australia, New Zealand, UK and South Africa. We technically interview and qualify candidates using our background knowledge as a key strength.

Our Recruiters continually undergo extensive training to improve performance and stay abreast of innovation within the industry.

He leads a specialist team of recruitment professionals.

Richard Christer – ConsultANZ Recruitment Director

Richard has 7 years project-based experience in civil and building projects in South Africa and the UK. He has spent the last 9 years in recruitment across Civil Engineering, Mining and FMCG sectors in UK, Africa and Australia.

We tailor our solutions to your needs

We like to think that brands and businesses are no different than people. They all have a unique identity and a unique story. That’s why at ConsultANZ we take time to get to know our Clients so we can tailor our recruitment approach to their specific needs and expectations. ConsultANZ can provide flexibility to facilitate either permanent or contract recruitment solutions for our Clients depending on their requirements.

Whether you’re looking for a Candidate to join your team on a temporary, permanent or contract basis, to manage a small project or a multi-million dollar one, we can help you find the best one to help you fulfil your business goals.

ConsultANZ offers an RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing) Recruitment model for either business unit supply or project-based recruitment function. Our RPO model provides many benefits, including flexibility, cost-saving, an increase in volume and extra HR functions. Learn more

We dig deeper

We do not believe that a resume can give you an accurate picture of the person behind it or that it is a foolproof way to find the best people. It’s important to our Recruiters to draw out the personality and the character of the person applying for the job to make sure they are exactly who you are looking for.

After extensive interviewing and reference gathering, we ask ourselves the following questions:

  • Can this Candidate do the job?
  • Is this Candidate the best possible one for the job?
  • Will this Candidate fit in?
  • What motivates this Candidate?
  • Do we want to work with this Candidate?
  • Do we trust this Candidate?

While our recruitment and selection process is very thorough, it is also quick, simple and effective and allows us to put forward only those Candidates who closely match your requirements.

We have an extensive Candidate network

We have a global network of candidates in our in-house database and can access candidates who are returning home or those who are heading to Australia or New Zealand on a working visa.

We also know that great Candidates know other great Candidates and that’s why we operate a successful Referral scheme.

We are tech-savvy

We have a dedicated marketing team to help us attract high-quality candidates through social media networking and advertising, and we constantly explore new ways to attract talent.

ConsultANZ has a database of over 65,000 Candidate records and has over 160,000 followers across LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook which allows us to promote our clients’ roles.
