We are a specialist professional recruitment consultancy operating across all areas of the built environment. We aim to ensure all our interactions with clients, candidates, contractors, and suppliers encompass our key values:

  • Innovative Solutions
  • Quality Delivery
  • Relationship Focused
  • Flexible Environment

We are passionate, honest, determined, collaborative – we work smart and celebrate success

Recognising that recruitment has become somewhat transactional, one eighty have re-established the relationship element of our business. We realised that to be successful our clients had to be 100% committed to the process. By using a variety of traditional and non-traditional sourcing and attraction methods we are able to improve client’s employer branding, attract a greater quality of candidates and specifically target appropriate people.
