A bit about me

I have worked in recruitment for 7 years. During that time I have specialised in sourcing construction labour for both white & blue collar roles. I now predominantly focus on the residential development sector – finding construction professionals in white collar, permanent roles. It would be great to have a chat about how I can assist in helping you to find your next opportunity.

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.

Director,

When you first contact us, be that through direct contact, responding to an advert or applying through our website, we will connect you with a consultant who works in your specialist area. 

Initially, they will arrange a meeting to talk through your CV and career history. They will encourage you to go into detail about your background and experiences, capabilities and responsibilities, personal circumstances and any other factors they feel are relevant to help them build up a well-rounded profile of you. 

We take extraordinary care in matching professionals to an opportunity – one that will help enhance their careers and a clients’ team. We therefore also use this meeting to empower you in your career. Using our extensive knowledge of the construction industry, we would provide in-depth overviews of businesses, projects and available roles, and guidance on where your strengths will add the most value and career potential. 

After this meeting, the consultant will speak to a number of their clients about you and your CV. Who they speak to can be either jointly agreed upon or you can trust the judgement and expertise of the consultant to contact clients they feel are the best fit for your experience and goals.

If any clients are interested in meeting with you, the consultant will manage the interview process, coaching you before any interviews if required. (Further guidance can be found here.)

If you are successful in receiving an offer(s), our consultant will communicate this with you and help to negotiate the offer(s) and any other terms of employment. 

Finally, we will support you in resigning from your current role, navigating potential counter offers and starting your new role.
