Choosing a specialist recruitment agency for administration roles.

Administration staff is crucial for the smooth-running of any business. And when it comes to construction and engineering, choosing the right talented administration staff is key. 

Even though the role they play is often underestimated, office support professionals are often the unsung heroes of a business. In particular, construction administrators provide valuable clerical and administrative services on projects from start to finish, allowing work processes to operate seamlessly.

With the construction industry booming with an influx of infrastructure projects, there’s a strong demand for highly experienced and talented back office staff across Australia.  Hiring staff has become more competitive than ever, and it can be tricky to find the right candidate to meet your needs. Choosing a specialist recruitment company, like CGC Recruitment, will help you overcome any hiring obstacles that arise.  


What’s the difference between a general recruitment agency and a specialist agency?

Generalist recruitment companies mightn’t understand the intricacies of construction or engineering businesses when offering administration support. 

If you hire administrators solely based on their core fundamental skills, they may lack the knowledge and experience required in these types of specialised sectors. 

Specialist agencies, like CGC Recruitment, recognise that experience and background from a project perspective is crucial. We know these sectors encounter different pressures and different personality requirements.  


CGC Recruitment - Experienced administration hire services

CGC Recruitment has been supporting clients with back office administration, HR, finance, and marketing roles for over 4 years now. The longevity in specialising in this area has allowed us to satisfy the never-ending demand for high quality administration staff for SMEs to large tier 1 contractors.  

Recruitment for administration staff is very different to recruiting technical roles due the skill set and function of the role. There are several key areas to consider when choosing the right recruitment company for your hiring needs.

This includes ensuring the culture and personality fit are aligned. 

CGC recognises the importance of hiring candidates who have the personality and business attributes to match the values of the organisation. And it works both ways. Our candidates are searching for a culture fit too, which is why we take the time to visit the office on site to ensure there’s an alignment. We use our deep insights to identify our client’s core business, then use this to filter candidates and select the right people for their unique positions. 


Supporting project delivery with our quality talent pool

When hiring from a recruitment company, it’s vital to ensure they have a great reputation for having highly qualified and experienced candidates who are familiar with the construction and engineering sectors.

Our extensive database of experienced administration staff and diverse professional networks enables CGC Recruitment to source the right candidate for the job - and with a quick turnaround time. 

Our Senior Consultant at CGC Recruitment, Mikaila O’Brien, has assisted numerous clients with administration support roles. She is uniquely positioned due to her strong relationships with candidates. This means Mikaila always has an extensive list of candidates to access promptly to help her clients fulfill roles.  

These include roles like: 

  • back office administration
  • project administrators, and 
  • site based roles

Mikaila can offer clients a valuable solution to any skills shortages within an organisation, particularly when there are specialist skills involved.
