The Hunter Valley region of New South Wales (NSW) is known for its rich history of coal mining and heavy industry. With the changing times and a shift towards sustainable development, combined with major infrastructure projects totalling over $4B in committed spend, the civil construction industry in the region is also booming. Major project across the region includes the John Hunter Hospital expansion $835M, the Newcastle Inner City Bypass $450M and new projects to commence in 2024 including the M1 Extension $2.1B & the Singleton bypass $700M.
As a result, there is a growing demand for skilled workers in this sector, which has led to an increase in recruitment activities.
Recruiting for the civil construction industry in the Hunter Valley can be a challenging task due to the specific skills and experience required for the job and a highly competitive mix of industries that require workers with similar skills sets – think mining and civil. To ensure that the right candidates are hired for the job, companies need to have a robust recruitment process in place.
We work with businesses across the Hunter who don’t necessarily have their own HR department, or are looking for support to find niche candidates.
Our team have the skills and experience to source the best available candidates, screen them, get them through the required onboarding process’ and get them out on site. We have been supporting clients across local projects for the past 10 years and have the right mix of skills and experience to get the job done.
Recently we have recruited a team of operators, drivers & trades assistants to support delivery on a project of work on a large industrial site. We have managed all aspects of their engagement and the client simply receives a weekly invoice.
If you need support with your project – talk to the team at Recruit Personnel and we can work up a recruitment strategy to attract you the best available talent in the market.
