What We Do

Established in 2012, ConsultANZ is a family-owned business and a niche supplier of temporary, contract and permanent engineering and associated staffing solutions to the engineering, construction and renewable energy industry.

The company is led by a strong and experienced senior management team who are either qualified surveyors or engineers and who have hands-on project-based experience from Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

With our headquarters and a sole office in Brisbane, we work hard to deliver first-rate service to our Clients and Candidates. ConsultANZ currently works in Australia (Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and Victoria) and across New Zealand.


ConsultANZ provides end-to-end recruitment solutions and has a demonstrable track record in sourcing and placing top engineering talent on various civil engineering and construction projects across Australia and New Zealand. We help main contractors, consultancies and civil engineering specialists find the best Professionals for both permanent and contract/temporary positions.

Our Consultants take time to get to know our Clients so they can tailor the recruitment approach to their specific needs and expectations. Our company structure, processes and procedures have been developed to enable a professional, cost-effective, accountable and flexible service level provision, utilising best practice recruitment methodologies, candidate attraction, selection, qualification, engagement and retention.
