We work with national, privately-owned and PLC housebuilders, Housing Associations and also a range of SME clients. We have recruited on to Main and Group Boards together with strengthening regional and site based teams across all disciplines utilising our network of contacts. The majority of our placements are made through long term business relationships once we have shared our talent mapping with our clients resulting in an investigative and pre-qualified search plan.
We operate with tier one contractors and a number of smaller, privately-owned companies who are delivering large scale new build schemes within the Education, Commercial, Healthcare and Local Authority sectors. We have been instrumental in the introduction of project teams who have led and delivered some of the country’s most recognisable landmarks and have a complete understanding of all live schemes and personnel employed by FTSE 100 companies together with the aligned RP arena.
Our success within this market place dates back to the early development of Overbury where we introduced many of their key Directors, some of whom remain in the business having placed them over twenty years ago and others who continue to enjoy working with us having moved on to start their own companies. Our clients define, design and deliver office fit-out and refurbishment projects, creating workplaces that empower staff and grow businesses.
Construction Professional Services have grown dramatically in recent years across engineering, Architecture, Surveying and Project Management.
We operate with a handful of select clients as well as aiding cross sector transfers for highly driven middle senior management executives through the UK’s major cities.
With lenders returning to the Real Estate Market, banks alongside insurance companies and pension funds have been seeking long-term and low-risk investment. We are interested to work with more organisations that are looking to recruit from aligned sectors and with our deep roots in housing we offer a broad contact base and enviable track record in terms of reaching and influencing high calibre individuals.
The UK construction and built environment industry has an international reputation for world-class design, inspirational architecture and the highest quality building. Working in this sector can lead to being a part of a team of professionals creating something lasting and helping to shape the environment for future generations. The construction and built environment industry is the UK’s largest industry, employing 2.35 million people and accounting for over 8% of the UK workforce.
Many of our property clients have taken advantage of diversification with focus on the Build to Rent market place and at Thomas Gray we have been involved with many successful searches for Regional and Divisional Boards with leading organisations within the Capital.
The target of 5,000 Build To Rent homes per year across the capital has been helpful in encouraging local authorities to support the development of covenanted BTR homes and adopt the use of discounted market rent as policy.
