Well established recruitment specialists

Building Personnel was formed in 2014 by Grant Bethune, harnessing years of local Melbourne recruitment experience. Today, with over 55 years of combined recruitment expertise amongst our consultants, the company services clients and candidates across the Construction, Engineering, Property and Finance and Business Support sectors in Melbourne with a view to deliver informed and historical knowledge on individuals and businesses with an honest and hands on approach.

The core success of the business has been leveraged off the viewpoint that whilst our clients and candidates recognise our professional ability and length of service within our chosen fields, there is an acceptance that our team are not driven by short term financial incentives but a longer viewpoint of developing respected and long-term relationships.

Collaboration in the workplace

Building Personnel has a management structure that encourages a collaborative environment within the business. Therefore each of our consultants have stronger interlacing relationships with their peers in peripheral sectors. Removing the competitive internal sales environment has promoted a far more engaged team because it provides quality outcomes based on a pool of industry knowledge for our candidates and clients.

We value the importance of establishing a positive outcome, not only placing candidates for project specific roles today, but fostering partnerships for the mid to long term. Whether it is an individual project or multiple opportunities across the Victorian landscape we have the expertise and knowledge to find you the right candidates for temporary or permanent roles across the Construction, Engineering, Property and Finance and Business Support sectors.
