How it Started
Your Ethical Talent Acquisition Partners.
Virtue Talent was established in July 2020 with a vision to change the perception of the recruitment landscape in an unregulated industry where morals and standards of behaviour are not always positive for the customer (client) and the candidate (individual talent). We offer a unique range of enhanced services different from traditional recruitment agencies.
Our business model is much more flexible and tailored to each business's needs as a small boutique. We offer genuinely reciprocal partnerships that ooze quality and value-adds. We don't work to KPIs, targets, commissions or bonuses.
Because of this, we can afford the time to produce quality, thoughtful, strategic, and methodical approaches to Talent Acquisition for both employers and career seekers.
An Extension of Your Team.
Leveraging our 20+ years of external and internal experience in talent acquisition and Executive search to multifaceted engineering & construction projects globally.
We specialise in four core sectors.
Defence - Air, Land & Sea Engineering Capabilities
Transport - Road & Rail D&C Projects
Building - Low and High Rise Commercial & Residential projects
Infrastructure - Multifaceted engineering projects in tunnelling, water, dams, renewables and power.
We believe in a simple philosophy: talent is crucial to success.
And no more so than in complex construction engineering ventures. Therefore, we can support you through the project life-cycle – from feasibility to delivery. Not just by job-filling but by taking a helicopter view and proactively capitalising on market analysis & intelligence, historical relationships & connections, and competitor employee movements.
The team leading your project defines your outcome.
When innovation and productivity are a marker for your success, a high-performing team culture, specialised leaders, and a diverse and engaged workforce will enhance efficiency, safety, delivery and a high degree of competency.
We assist employers and talented candidates in making the right decision at the right time through extensive consultation whilst questioning the status quo.
