Apart from being a Pro Tennis/Golf player or a Rockstar nothing beats working in the Construction Industry. It's dynamic, challenging and rewarding! Every day there's a new curve ball which is effectively dealt with and results are delivered leaving lasting legacies of beautiful Building and Infrastructure structures that make the world a better place.

I love being a small player in this incredible industry and with over 30 years industry experience I have the experience, knowledge, intel and contacts to add value should you either be looking for a new role or looking to recruit the strongest individual to your team.

General Manager - Recruitment

In my dreams I'm Roger Federer but when I'm awake I'm the guy that's been working in the recruitment industry for 21 years with the last nine years dedicated to the construction and engineering market working as a Senior Recruiter for CPB (Leighton) one of Australia's leading Contractors. I get a real buzz in placing the best people into the best jobs.

I pride myself in the career advice and opportunities that I can share with individuals and the upfront manner and general construction knowledge I can display with our clients. We do make a difference

Having studied Psychology and Business at the University of Otago NZ, I packed my bags and headed off to the UK where I worked my way up from dogsbody to nobody before finally being noticed and given an opportunity to manage what became an extremely successful Change Management Business Unit.

Of course right when I was ready to launch into my supersonic career, I got the call to return home as something unprecedented was about to happen in Australia – yes the largest transport infrastructure boom that we have ever seen was fast approaching. With billions of dollars to be spent and challenging projects to be delivered I got FOMO, there was no way I was missing out on having this much fun! So I returned from the UK and moved into the Construction Recruitment sector in Australia.

I know that that this industry is built on hard work, good relationships, industry knowledge and integrity. This sums up what Oxford does and how I operate within it. We know that to create a great team, you need great people and that’s exactly what Oxford has done for the past 20 years; found good people.

This is a fast-paced, demanding, all-consuming and awesome industry to be a part of!
