Come what may
A sustainable approach to recruitment for construction, civil engineering, facilities management and mining.
We change the way you feel about work
Whatever happens, you can rely on Brownlee Cale to deliver ridiculously great customer service, and ROI. Your success is our priority. Our team works differently to the rest, to ensure we deliver the best experience possible.
We work differently
Your metrics are the ones we care about. Other recruiters pay commission based on sales generated, but our focus is on building trusting relationships with our clients.
Your success is our success
We want to help you achieve maximum return on your investment. Everything we do is geared towards ensuring this happens in the most efficient, convenient way for you.
Trusting relationships matter
Great relationships create the best results. We really take the time to understand what you’re looking for, and partner with you to achieve that end result.
We live by quality and standards
It’s important to us that you know you’re in safe hands. We have the expertise and systems to ensure you’re compliant, and that liability is mitigated when it comes to IR35, CIS and AWR.
Challenges? We understand them
Our team has grassroots experience in the industries we recruit for. We know your sector. We speak your language. We understand the challenges from an employer and employee perspective.
Networks are essential
