“What makes Number 8 different?”
Essentially Number 8 provides the same services as most recruiters currently operating in the NZ construction sector, however the way we do it is very different. The first thing that is noticeable is the lack of shiny suits and hair products in our office and a bit more grey hair than usual. We intentionally build our team using individuals with recognised relevant experience who understand what our clients are asking for and know how important it is to get it right. We don’t make promises we know full well we can’t keep and by establishing a solid understanding of our client’s culture and expectations we can communicate with candidates with confidence to ensure they are looking at roles that provide positive career opportunities.
Historically, our industry has been negatively affected by recruiters and agencies who push boundaries with the sole purpose of financial gain. Although we are obviously commercially driven we genuinely value the opportunities provided by clients and the importance of the candidate resources. For these reasons our actions and assessment of success are based on the level of service we provide not the size of the fee.
