Expansion is Key
Creating more than just luck for one recruitment firm
Number 8, a UK based specialist construction recruitment firm serving the international recruitment markets, was established at the end of 2008 by Peter Hart, Group Operations Director, and Zinzan Brooke, former captain of the All Blacks Rugby Team.
In 2013, it saw particular growth in New Zealand, where the recent earthquake in Christchurch meant that demand for skilled construction workers had outstripped supply. In addition to responding to this demand, the firm wanted to specialise in temporary recruitment for the demolition industry, in addition to providing construction clients with high-level permanent recruitment.
We established the business in a tough market, but we have seen consistent and solid growth since. Our aim is to continue to grow our turnover and the number of workers we are placing.
