International Clients - Why you should work with us?

We’ve provided technical/professional staff to the Scottish construction industry since 1990 and are the largest independent consultancy within the market here. The International Division at Contract Scotland was created in 2010 to supply staff to the construction, engineering, and property sectors out with Scotland and the UK and has become a trusted partner for employers seeking the best talent to join their teams.

Recruiting 'internationally' isn’t the same as recruiting ‘domestically’. It requires more of your recruitment partner – they need to be more thorough, really understand and get ‘to the bottom’ of potential candidates (be that their experience, capability, motivations, or family situation) and guide/support them through what sometimes can be a lengthy recruitment process.

It can be easy to think that a recruiters role stops when the individual starts a new position. We don’t believe that for roles in Scotland and we definitely don’t believe it when filling roles internationally – we play a key role in the successful onboarding of a new employee.

There are more risks and complexities when hiring from overseas and we can support you to manage these. With over 15 years’ experience in international recruitment, we’ve had great success and also learned what is required of us. We excel in addressing the unique challenges that arise when recruiting from the UK. The process of finding candidates with the right qualifications and technical experience can be challenging, given variations in standards and qualifications across different countries.

With so many recruiters out there it’s important to partner with the right one who can really add value to the recruitment process and not just be a ‘CV sending service’. Because we have been recruiting internationally for many years, we already have substantial pipelines of hard-to-find, pre-interviewed candidates who are looking to relocate.

As a well-established and specialised recruitment consultancy we take pride in our ability to connect our clients with the best construction professionals from the UK. By recruiting from overseas, your company can gain access to a diverse pool of skilled engineering and construction candidates.

Our experienced team at Contract Scotland is equipped to help you navigate through the complexities of international recruitment. With our team’s expert guidance and consultative approach, we can ensure that you find the ideal candidate tailored to your specific requirements.

Roles we recruit for include:
• Site Engineers
• Project Engineers & Senior Project Engineers
• Project Managers
• Senior Management/Directors
• Commercial Managers
• Quantity Surveyors (all levels)
• Contract Administrators
• Estimators
• Supervisors/ Superintendent’s
• Construction Managers
• Health & Safety Advisors & Managers
• Planning Engineers/Planners
• Geotechnical Engineers
• Land Surveyors
• Design Manager/ Design Co-ordinator
• CAD Technician
• Structural/Civil Design Engineers

Submit a Vacancy - If you are struggling to attract suitable civil engineering or construction candidates for your business, it’s time to reach out to us.
