Since 2003 Built Recruitment has been helping construction companies throughout South Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East meet tight budgets and timelines through the provision of highly professional built environment personnel.
Providing the best service requires being a specialist construction recruitment agency and this comes through extreme knowledge and strong business ethics.
These core values are the foundation of every interaction with both client and candidate.
BUILT RECRUITMENT is headed up by John Clutten. This is what people have to say about him:
“John’s professional approach in the process and his vast knowledge in international placements was refreshing, rewarding and indeed amazing. I truly think that Built Recruitment is one of the top construction recruitment agencies out there.”
Ivan Reynolds, MBA
“John is a very seasoned recruiter and I can recommend him to any company that is looking to match job requirements and employee skills.”
Tryphinah Kgokong, MBA, MRICS
“John is a hands on manager/consultant with an eye for detail. He will stick doggedly to a task until it is completed. When it comes to giving customer satisfaction he is a perfectionist.”
Quentin Robinson, BCom, MBA
Built Recruitment is a member of NPA Worldwide which gives us instant access to like-minded construction recruitment agencies worldwide. Finding exceptional people in distant continents takes only a phone call.
Probably our most unlikely success was when we were approached by one of our NPA affiliate partners in Kansas City, USA to assist in finding an Executive Director for their client, a Fortune 500 company, who could head up their operations in Kinshasa, DRC. On top of stringent technical skills the person also had to be french speaking and already an expat. We eventually found a Turkish national who was fluent in 4 languages (including french) who relocated with his family.
Another instance we’re particularly proud of is when we got a call out of the blue from a middle eastern company who had already been through a number of South African construction recruitment agencies without success. They started the phone call by saying “we don’t think you’ll be able to help us, but …”. To cut a long story short, we gave them exactly what they needed and they’ve been a loyal client for 12 years having taken dozens of our candidates.
We also enjoy our minor successes. We know we are the construction recruitment agency of choice for many contractors in South Africa and we hope to add you to that list.
Working For You
We select our clients carefully and never take on more work than we can handle. This allows us space to be thorough and make sure that nothing falls through the cracks.
When the pressure heats up, like on recruitment campaigns with multiple vacancies, we have a very tight network of fellow recruiters and sourcing specialists around the world that we can call on. These associates are also there to help out when we have to search for people in foreign countries.
We have regular clients in South Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East and work with associate partners in Europe and the USA.
