At Build People there's two things we won’t stand. Our clients having any degree of uncertainty around their recruitment outcome and secondly, businesses who are unable to achieve their goals and strategies because they can’t get the best people in the market. As a supplier of talent, we see our role as removing the obstacles / uncertainty and exposing your role and business to the top 20% of available talent in the NZ market.

Rather than advertising and sending automated job alerts, our approach is to run a proactive and targeted search that involves approaching talented people on your behalf. For you, our client, our strategy means you get a lot more work and a more qualified shortlist in return for your recruitment investment. Typically, we engage on a time specific assignment and what's more, we guarantee results. We are able to do this based purely on our track record of success.

So call us today to talk about growth through people. We promise you the results you need.

What people say

I write this reference in support of Jeremy and the Build People + Gunn Talent recruitment teams. Not only was Jeremy my recruiter of choice when it came time to explore my own career options, but I’ve also used them for a variety of roles across the Dysart business, from senior operations to manufacturing and administration.

They are an exemplary recruitment business who have delivered every time I’ve engaged them, and I highly recommend them as recruitment partners.

Daniel Wilson, General Manager - Dysart Timbers Ltd

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

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.

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 - Stanley Black & Decker

Build People approached us promising big things and they have delivered every time. Their knowledge of top candidates in our market segment coupled with their search abilities have given us the competitive edge when recruiting. I highly recommend their services to business leaders looking to build a performance team through smarter recruitment and who seek the advantage of a recruitment partnership with industry experts.
