Recruitment Consultant – Civil Engineering


We work with construction professionals considering their next career move and who want to make the most informed decision – now and for the entirety of their careers. Having been established for over 14 years, we have built a solid foundation in our sector and have one of the most credible reputations in the industry, an excellent staff base of skilled consultants and a vibrant, professional and exciting working environment.

We believe one of the reasons we have been so successful is that we know our industries inside and out. Our team has a background in construction, civil engineering and consultancy. We talk our client’s language.

You can also be confident that we do things right. It is common for recruitment to be tarnished as a volume-based, transactional sector with a lack of understanding for the nuances of the market within which each company operates. You won’t find any of that at Cityscape Recruitment. We work to very high standards with transparency and expect our team to operate armed with extensive industry knowledge, and we value and reward our people for delivering against that vision.

We have a proven history of developing trainees into the best consultants in their field – each team member is given encouragement, support and, most importantly, the opportunities to progress. They are also rewarded for their achievements. As with any sales-based role, we offer a competitive benefits package. This includes a quarterly bonus and a generous monthly commission structure which often exceeds the base salary. To put it simply, we know that our employees are the foundation of our business. We make it our responsibility to ensure that this foundation is looked after.


We currently have an opportunity for an experienced recruitment consultant join our thriving Civil Engineering team, which collectively bills on average more than £800k between 4 individuals per year. You will be working alongside one of the Director’s who has over 15 years recruitment experience in the Civil Engineering sector. Doors will be open, candidates will be available and you will be able to get up and running very quickly.

This opportunity will provide you with the platform to further develop a lucrative section of the business and build on a strong, focused client list.

The dedicated recruiter will be given a good balance between support and autonomy to manage their desk. And in doing so, they will manage the process, develop and manage client and candidate relationships, source candidates for roles, liaise with other consultants in the business and will fulfil a full 360 recruiter role.

As a growing company, your position within the business will naturally elevate to a role with more responsibility, gaining more experience over time. There is room for this individual to not only progress towards senior consultant but also beyond into divisional leader positions.


Remuneration will be extremely generous. We base salaries on the experience and ability of each professional but offer beyond the typical level in the industry. You can expect a basic salary from £20,000 to £35,000 and on target earnings of £40,000 to £75,000 per year. In addition to basic salary and commission (that has no threshold or cap and ranges from 10% to 35%), we offer generous quarterly bonuses, quarterly target based office events, regular team social events, on-going perks through EAPs and smaller benefits inside the office.


Successful applicants will ideally have prior experience in construction recruitment and will be capable of business generation and client delivery leading to fees. However, we are willing to consider and meet with applicants who have proven recruitment experience that is not within the construction sector or applicants with limited exposure to the recruitment sector, for example, those in a resourcer/trainee role who are looking for the next step.

We are also keen to consider individuals who are qualified in construction or civil engineering. The market knowledge and understanding gained from this background offer a unique starting point for a potentially excellent career in construction recruitment.

Most importantly a successful Recruitment Consultant will be self-motivated, have a confident personality, be willing to work with a variety of people, be conscientious, show strong organisational skills and demonstrate a high level of intelligence.

About Cityscape Recruitment

Cityscape Recruitment is not like any other construction recruitment agency. Our business does not have a sales-driven environment, instead, we reward quality over quantity.

We use our specialist industry knowledge to help introduce and guide construction professionals into companies that best suit their desired career aspirations and personal goals. From Quantity Surveyors to Site Managers to Civil Engineers, we work to the same objective of helping to enhance their careers.

And our relationships don’t end on day one of a new role – we pride ourselves on our ability to build long-lasting relationships with both clients and construction professionals. And we are fortunate enough to work with many leading construction companies and professionals in London and throughout the rest of the UK.


Clients we work for

Our clients range from small, privately owned specialist contractors right up to top-tier PLCs responsible for shaping our country’s landscape.

What our clients say

We have worked with Alex Wallace and the Cityscape Recruitment team for a number of years now and find their service excellent.

They supply well matched and vetted candidates and very quickly understood all our requirements. They have always demonstrated good market knowledge and an ability to deliver to our requirements.

Commercial Director,
Main Contractor

I have used Cityscape Recruitment multiple times over the last 5 years. Very pleasant to deal with and all candidates put forward for interview are well suited to the position and well vetted by the team, so there is no time wasted with unsuitable applicants. I would highly recommend Cityscape. I intend to use them again in the future should any vacancies become available.

Operations Director,
Platt and Reilly Ltd

The Cityscape Recruitment team has always been great to deal with. Always ready to listen to our needs and requirements, a quality some recruiters do not appreciate or have, then advising where they can assist in our staff procurement. We look forward to working with Laura and Cityscape in the coming years.
