Sector Knowledge

Starting in 2017, David has quickly become immersed in recruiting for a variety of new roles and is developing industry knowledge, client relationships, and candidate networks across a broad range of areas listed above. Previously studying and working as a land surveyor, David specialised in land law, surveying and title transaction expertise. He has had experience in the whole land development process, including field and office surveying, resource consent planning, project management and client care, and providing project proposals to clients. David’s time in the surveying profession has resulted in the establishment of working relationships with many other different professions including civil, structural, and geotechnical engineers, architects, CAD drafters, local and regional councils, and the building and construction industries. This exposure to many and varied technical industries has provided David with both industry specific technical knowledge and a broad general knowledge across these professions.

It is now that I realize the enormous impact Technical Recruitment Solutions had on our lives. You, with great dedication and patience for our situation, gave me and my family hope and understanding. The job search on its own, in a new country, is stressful enough. You were always supportive and listened to what suit me best. I have tried many a recruiter only to be pushed aside and never kept in the loop. We will be forever grateful. I feel you are a great ambassador for recruiters alike.

I decided to  write this because of the VERY positive experience I have had with David over the last month and a half. This is in stark contrast to the experiences I had with other recruitment people that I have dealt with in the last 2 months. My partner is actually responsible for hiring her own staff and she was EXTREMELY impressed with how David was going about his job. Both in regards to the approach, speed of response and general manner in which he performed. The HR person at her work was also impressed when we described the experience we were getting. If anyone asks me to recommend a recruiter I will categorically send them in your direction.
