Building Products & Construction

Collingwood Executive Search has been working in collaboration with building products, property and construction organisations for over 15 years.

We typically partner clients who require a research based, exhaustive approach to finding the best talent available.   This is often when more traditional recruiters have failed to deliver.

When approaching the passive market (headhunting) this approach proves particularly successful across:

  • Senior leadership roles
  • Business critical positions
  • Technically hard to find skill sets
  • Confidential or sensitive appointments
  • Recruiting internationally

Some roles dictate headhunting within a given market.  However, with the same recycled candidates moving from competitor to competitor, Mark often advises clients to drive fresh ideas, best practice and approaches gained from outside of the industry into the built environment – as demonstrated in this recently produced article


Our consultative and tailored executive search services are designed to be advice and best practice driven, not sales and CV focused. By researching specified markets we identify, attract, assess and engage with individuals who, not only meet your requirements but also align with your values and vision for the future. We support a diverse range of organisations with PLCs, SMEs, and entrepreneurial organisations all benefiting from Collingwood’s market knowledge and insights.

"Collingwood Executive Search was impressive, not just by the end result – which was a high calibre candidate to fulfill our exacting demands for a key role – but in particular, their tenacity, though always professional, was clearly key to a successful outcome. Furthermore, their honesty in presenting possibilities was refreshing, especially by comparison with traditional recruitment agencies who seem to do nothing more than ‘recycle’ CVs in the hope of a lottery win!

I would definitely recommend the company and the team there to anyone who has need of expert assistance in fulfilling a senior / strategic position."


Unlike most search firms, Collingwood also offers leadership transition services which go beyond candidate placement. Our leadership services are aimed at accelerating the performance of your new employee, to ensure a smooth career transition and reduce business disruption through the change.
