After working for two high-profile recruitment firms for five years James established Contec Recruitment in 2006. James has a renowned reputation in the Queensland construction industry working with local building contractors for over 10 years and supplying high quality white-collar staff to organisations of all sizes and participating in industry events and forums including the Master Builders. It was James’s aim to establish a boutique recruitment firm that put’s a higher level of importance on customer service and promotes positive long-term relationships with clients.
