What people say

I was always someone who used to manage my own recruitment process. Then, a year or so ago I used Jeremy and his team at Build People, and it was life changing.

If you’re good at recruitment yourself, you’ll get to all the actively looking candidates in the market, if your timings right you might even get to some of the passively searching candidates. Even if you choose to poach someone, you’ll know a handful of people, and one of them may suit. What Jeremy showed me, (and delivered) was that the right person may not be looking, and is almost certainly not on my radar.

Only a recruitment agent like Jeremy, who pretty much knows everyone in the building supply industry, has the knowledge and experience to put my role together with exactly the right person, and then go and get them for me. As a bonus, it frees up scores of hours along the way, by taking care of the shortlisting process, reference and background checks.

At the end of the day, getting exactly the right person for a role is almost priceless, and Build People have nailed it for us every time.

Rob Lawson, Simpson Strong-Tie NZ

To be honest we tried recruiting ourselves but we struggled to get good quality candidates. Build People had just competed a successful training programme for our sales team and were keen to offer their services. It took a lot of stress out of the process, but more importantly their selections were "spot on' for the position.

Darryl Patterson, Sales Manager

After being involved in the building industry for 16 years I struggled with talking to recruitment agencies as they never understood the building industry. However my first meeting with Jeremy was a breath of fresh air.

Jeremy and the Build People Team were all great personalities with an in depth knowledge of the building industry and the people in it. I have reached a great result for my career thanks to Build People and I would happily recommend them to everyone.

Jody Griffin, Account Manager

Stanley Black and Decker have had an exclusive relationship with Build People for the last six years. In this time they have gone to great lengths to understand our culture and the performance required from our people.

These efforts coupled with knowledge of wholesale to retail candidates and the hardware industry have enabled them to put some excellent candidates in front of us. They have made our recruitment easy and effective and I’m happy to recommend Build People to other Senior Managers looking to save time and interview shortlists of great people.

Hamish Matheson, Country Manager

I'd like to acknowledge the quality of work you put in for us recently in providing an excellent shortlist of candidates for our National Account Managers role. Your candidates were certainly at the top of the market to the point where all of them were serious contenders for the role, and identifying the right person was a challenge for us!

Your knowledge of our market and where the top people are made the process efficient and professional, and all within your stated timeframe.

Tim Lewis, General Manager
