HR solutions for the building and construction sectors


Our dedicated HR consultants recruit well-trained specialists for the building and construction sector. 


Recruiting specialists for building and construction is challenging. The fact that many tradespeople are now recruited from abroad requires very good knowledge of the various professional qualifications as well as administrative expertise about the residence and employment law situation of foreign skilled workers in Switzerland. Our professional recruiters have this knowledge.

We recruit all-rounders with a wide range of professional experience as well as knowledgeable specialists for various construction phases and sectors who match your job specification exactly. Experts in civil engineering, residential construction and the construction of industrial buildings and interior design are in particular demand.

We cultivate our pool of staff which leads to a high level of loyalty and availability. This is important as well-trained specialists are in a very good negotiating position. We also ensure that our staff have completed all training and development as well as safety training and have the work clothing and safety equipment required. We require experience with the WorkControl application which regulates access to and compliance with legal requirements on construction sites for certain positions.
