About Us


Experts.Sourcing Exceptional Talent.

We are a unique offering in the Australian recruitment landscape as the only franchise based recruitment model specifically servicing the Built Environment and Infrastructure sectors focused only in Australia. This provides some key advantages for our clients, both employers and jobseekers alike who benefit from the following.

  • Smaller well managed teams delivering a higher quality service

  • Capable of national reach whilst providing a consistent service

  • Highly personalised due to the smaller focused team size

  • Highly specialised due to vertical market territories

  • High quality service guaranteed due to agreed operating processes

Our community of experienced recruiters work together daily to deliver recruitment solutions to our clients throughout Australia sharing knowledge, our extensive national database, and above all sharing our commitment to the highest level of quality and customer service.

The Constructive Collective builds on the experiences of our founder who has worked for over 25 years within the built environment and infrastructure both in industry and then subsequently delivering recruitment services to the sectors. This wealth of experience and understanding of the needs of our clients and jobseekers alike ensures that the quality of service delivered by the whole team is of the highest level.


Whilst our values may be simple, the impact that they have is not.


Not only are we passionate about what we do and the impact that we have on people’s careers and their lives in addition to being able to make a difference to our clients and their projects. We count ourselves fortunate to have such an influential role in both the economy and the community.

We are a no-nonsense business, who say it how it is and although we take our role and what we do seriously we will never ever do that with ourselves!

Our primary focus has and always will be within our core industry verticals of the Built Environment and Infrastructure.

2004 was a turning point for me to which you had a very big influence in. Your placement of me as the senior estimator in Abergeldie Contractors was the perfect fit for me. You were able to find a niche in a very competitive market that changed my career for the better. I attribute this success in my career to you as previously mentioned, for your ability in placing me with a very successful company. Over the years we have stayed in touch and celebrated my anniversaries with Abergeldie and also the celebration of my being one of your longest appointments, if not the longest.   All of this and your personable approach to your profession is, why you are successful and well respected in this industry.

Giles, Thanks for restoring my faith in the recruitment industry. After making contact on a personal level and explaining what has been happening in the Constructive recruitment space, I mentioned that we were looking for a particular type of individual to join our growing business. This was no ordinary placement as it required someone with entrepreneurial skills as well as a need to be compliant and engage widely with industry. This was no introvert or extrovert, this was someone I described from a general discussion. You listened, and we got a person that has fitted into our organisation perfectly. Thank you for listening.

I cannot thank Giles Keay enough for his drive, commitment and determination in finding me a suitable and prosperous placement, following my family's move from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast.As if it weren't challenging enough moving interstate, the onset of Covid-19 created further difficulties in finding opportunities; let alone arranging interviews around my existing work schedule between Sydney andour new home. Giles presented a number of possibilities, eventually landing me an offer from a local and respected company with not only good remuneration, but also clear pathways towards career development.My family and I are now settled and feeling at peace thanks to Giles and his diligence. I would highly recommend Giles to other professionals looking for a personalised and caring approach to assist their career journey.

My relationship with Giles started when I posted on linked in that I was in need of support. Giles reached out to me and said “I will help you”. I thought to my self wow that is a statement I have been wanting to hear. Not only did Giles support me in looking for work for me he continually checked in to ensure I as feeling ok and positive. In the most uncertain times (Covid-19) Giles found a role that he said you will be perfect for this company. He was able to get me an interview, he coached me for the interview. He talked to me prior to the interview to ensure I was calm and ready. After the interview I had an offer on the table in 2 days. I would recommend Giles to everyone. He is an inspirational leader in the field of recruitment. He cares about his Candidates and works so very hard for each one us. Giles thank you for your help and support.
