Helping to enhance careers

A candidate success story

We introduced a graduate Estimator to 8build two years ago, on a complimentary basis. We knew him personally and wanted help give him a kick-start in his career.


We are delighted to hear that he has since excelled in his role. Not only did he settle into the role quickly,  he successfully participated in a number of winning tenders for the business and is described as bringing youthful enthusiasm to the estimating function. Having now completed his graduate training (and the first Estimator to do so), he has seen his remuneration increase along with his status in the team.


As recruitment consultants, it is sometimes easy to get drawn into the recruitment process and lose sight of why we became recruiters in the first place. Success stories like this bring home the potential impact we can have on individuals and their careers. We made no financial gain from this placement, but the pleasure we’ve got from seeing a graduate Estimator, with loads of potential, become an integral team member of this fast-moving, new age main contractor, far outweighs any fee.
