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 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

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

In partnering with our business for half a decade, Build People has supported our mission in selecting skilled, educated and energetic talent to take our business into the future. They have understood our mission, complemented our robust assessments and selection methodologies and delivered the best the market has to offer.

We highly value our relationship with Build People and strongly recommend their services as a strategic recruitment supplier.

Brendon Simpson, Managing Director

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’ve worked exclusively with Build People for a number of years and they have been instrumental in providing me with some highly talented people. Jeremy and his team know their industry and how to uncover top performers very well and I value their input into my business.
