We work with national, privately-owned and PLC housebuilders 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have known and enjoyed working with both Ian and his team for over twenty years. Having positioned me as Group M.D of Miller Homes, Ian helped me rebuild the business by sourcing both Regional and Divisional Board talent across all disciplines throughout the country. At Antler Homes, a smaller niche player, Ian was once again my go to consultant to source the necessary talent required to rebuild the business. Having set up Sigma Homes, Ian and his well trained team have sourced all of the key managers including that of a newly appointed Group Land Director. In summary I can say with certainty that Thomas Gray deserve the reputation for being the most connected and trusted name in housing sector recruitment.
