Tailor-made for your business

When it comes to finding talent, the experience and extensive networks of the team at Tailor Talent gives us a distinct advantage, especially in a tight labour market. We don’t just rely on  job ads or go fishing on Seek, we tailor our search to meet the employers’ requirements allowing us to source and shoulder tap top notch candidates.


We take enormous pride in the quality of our service to both the clients we work with and the candidates we speak with. Building genuine rapport is our main priority, as we firmly believe this is vital to ensuring a successful recruitment outcome. We don’t bombard our clients with CVs. We know what skills and expertise they’re looking for and the type of people that will suit their business.


We’re more than just a recruitment company. We’re valued, trusted partners to the companies we work with. We’re their eyes and ears on the ground. It’s really valuable for our clients to know how their company is perceived in the market and we’re honest and upfront about sharing what we know. We are advocates for our clients in the market and we work with them to identify and implement strategies to attract better talent.

Our Recruitment Solutions

Leveraging off our reputation, our established and extensive networks, we are well positioned to quickly identify and attract the right talent for you. Whether your needs are centred around a new project, or change management, this solution is great for one off roles, reducing the usual cost to hire while still receiving an exceptional recruitment service.


Our end-to-end recruitment solution* includes:

  • Market mapping: get insight to where certain skill sets are sitting in the marketplace
  • Sourcing/targeted search: reaching out to potential candidates
  • Screening: interviewing and assessing potential candidates who have shown interest in the role
  • Shortlisting: present a shortlist of viable candidates to the client
  • Arranging Interviews: provide interview guides and participate if required
  • Pre-employment Checks: references and MOJ checks
  • Offer/Contract Negotiation: providing clarification and guidance
  • Onboarding assistance: if required.

*This solution can be customised to suit your needs and preferences.


We often hear from clients that paying large recruitment fees isn’t sustainable long term. In response, Tailor Talent offers the option to work with a well networked and experienced search specialist without paying agency standard rates.

This is a great option when you have multiple hires or specialist roles to fill, for example, if you’ve just won a project that you need to resource for, or if your business is growing and you need to source multiple people at once.

Operating as an extension to your business and representing your brand, we can source a number of hard-to-fill roles, or entire teams over a 3, 6 or 12 month period. This solution will effectively reduce your external recruitment spend, while assisting cashflow by spreading the costs evenly over the months that the retainer is in place. We offer reduced fees under a retained agreement and will provide clear timelines to deliver the roles required.

Highly skilled and vetted individuals, as and when you need them. We’ve got a portfolio of highly skilled construction professionals who are at the top of their game, who can hit the ground running and slot seamlessly into your team.

This offers a moveable resource for you and your projects, so you can resource up and down at short notice, freeing up talent in the market to go where the demand is. This allows true collaboration in an industry where there is a shortage of skills.

We are seeing an increasing number of candidates wanting to contract and our pool of qualified contractors is growing. They can see the benefits of contracting including being able to earn more, have tax benefits, flexibility, and the exposure to a diverse range of projects.  

We work closely with all our contractors to ensure they are well looked after and always informed. Contractors take an active risk when they decide to contract, and it is our job to ensure they are aware of the risks involved whether they are new to contracting or a seasoned professional. We always do our best to manage our contractors’ expectations relating to the agreed assignment including their market rate, the contract duration, potential for extension of the contract duration, and managing the transition to their next assignment.


We can complement your HR or Recruitment team – similar to retained resourcing, but as an hourly service and one of our consultants would be onsite assisting your existing team.

Get in touch to find out more about any of these services, or have a chat about what the ideal recruitment solution looks like for you. We’re always happy to chat through your requirements and figure out a solution together.
