About Design Build Search

Design Build Search has specialist recruitment consultants with expertise in the different sectors with the construction industry. As a result, when you partner with us you will get a dedicated consultant and a specialist experience.

Operating as part of the Vertical Markets Group, Design Build Search was founded in 2016 with the aim of bringing our expertise, specialist approach and vast network to the construction recruitment sector. Since then we have grown organically, nurturing valuable relationships with the businesses we partner with.

Our reputation in the construction sector is well-established, and a significant portion of our business comes from repeat business and referrals which is a testament to our ability to cultivate long term relationships with our clients.

Deep Knowledge, Dedicated Experts

Design Build Search is headquartered in Dublin, with our team spread out across Ireland. Therefore we are equally at home in the Irish construction sector and the global arena. Specialising exclusively in construction and engineering, we provide bespoke recruitment services to leading regional, national and global brands.

Why Partner with DB Search

At Design Build Search we pride ourselves on building on your foundation and becoming an extension of your business. What sets us apart is our commitment to providing consultancy services rather than just recruiting. Our main aim is to cultivate long lasting relationships with both employers and employees rather than just one of encounters.

We understand the uniqueness of each client and go beyond job descriptions to comprehend organisational nuances, cultural dynamics, and team requirements. We tailor our approach, including feedback and review processes to meet the specific needs of our clients.

We understand that when we work with a client we act as an extension of the employer brand, and as a result we place the candidate experience as a priority throughout the recruitment process. We ensure that a candidates experience and impression of your brand is a positive one from the very first email.

For Design Build Search, Diversity & Inclusion is more than a metric, it is a practice. We understand the value of bringing diverse talent, new thinking, and new perspectives into an organisation and ensure this is a focus in not only hiring for our clients but internally also.

We're diversity hiring advocates

At Design Build Search and the wider Vertical Markets Group we have worked hard to ensure that D&I is built into the fabric of our business. We are hugely proud to have been awarded silver investors in diversity by the Irish Centre for Diversity.

We understand that we have a critical role to play in improving best practice throughout the recruitment process, becoming a credible recruitment partner to our clients and in turn supporting them in the development of their own D&I strategy.
