We're better for your career
….because we take a precise, relevant and researched approach taking into account culture, motivations and fit. And you’ll be consulted at every step too.
In short, we’re different. But in a good way that makes recruitment all about you and never about us.
We get the right jobs – in fact, 65% of customers only use us for their needs. Even when our customers use others to recruit, 80% think our service is superior, so you’ll get access to different jobs too.
Companies trust us to find the right people for their temporary, fixed term and permanent posts. And in finding those right people 93% of contracts are extended, so you don’t have to worry too much about fit or duration – we’ll make sure that’s all taken care of.
So you know we’ve got technical and professional roles covered right, but are you aware of the other professions we recruit for in the wider construction industry? We have placed hundreds* of people who perform the essential support roles for firms throughout Scotland, across Administration, HR, Finance, IT, Procurement, Business Development, Marketing and more. So really we’re a one stop shop for all your professional needs within the construction market – let us help you find a career built to last.
Have you left the construction industry but struggling to re-enter due to a lack of relevant experience?
Are you qualified to the max but are rejected for roles because you can’t show practical understanding?
Are your studying a construction subject but can’t get the hands-on experience you need to find work?
Gary Lithgow had a shadow placement at the new Forth Bridge Crossing via Constructing Futures and was offered a fixed-term contract at the end of his placement. He acknowledges that without us, he would likely not have gained the experience or the job opportunity.
Constructing Futures could help you secure a voluntary shadow placement with a variety of contractors, consultants, architects or cost consultancy and help you become closer to the jobs market.
We’ve kept our senior appointment service offering under the radar – we don’t like to shout about it too much given the sensitivity of the roles, but we’ve been successful at placing Directors throughout the Scottish construction industry since 1990. We understand the level of detail, research and personal service that is required to handpick senior management/directors to the perfect job, and our select team will coach you and guide you throughout the process.
