There are few fields as wide-ranging as construction. Far from being a single specialty it’s a collection of quite separate professions intricately woven into a much larger whole. And if a construction recruitment agency is to excel, then it needs to possess and exhibit an unconditional understanding of the professionals the construction industry includes. Groom & Associates is that agency, with an impressive experience in construction recruiting that has handled everyone from project managers to field engineers, surveyors to safety officers, through to the countless dozens of skilled trades that make up the true foundation of construction.


Groom & Associates prides itself on taking a different approach to construction staffing, we don’t scavenge job postings looking for leads, work through third-party recruiters, or sit and wait for the right candidate to come along. We move first, move fast and pride ourselves on dynamism and being proactive – we reach out, far, wide and deep into pools of resources that the construction industry itself has relied upon for years to source some of the finest talent.

We didn’t become experts in recruitment in construction overnight – we worked for it for the better part of 20 years. It takes that long to hone a skill as exacting as construction recruitment, and as long to acquire the specific knowledge that allows us to operate comfortably within its norms and guidelines. Groom & Associates has committed considerable resources in developing its abilities and expertise and that effort has given us the enviable reputation we deserve.

Finding talent for the construction industry begins with ensuring we’ve got the right talent, people that understand and appreciate the complexity of construction recruiting, its nuances, the vast range of professionals it encompasses, and perhaps key, where to find them. The construction industry operates in cycles, there are booms, and lulls – and knowing where to look, and when to find the best candidates is as important as being plugged into the right network. The sources of top talent will differ greatly during booms than they will during busts as skilled tradesmen as well as engineering professionals exercise their abilities to move across specialties and work outside of construction. Our expert construction recruiters have a first-hand familiarity with the subtleties of the industry, an intuition for impending cycle shifts, and can adjust quickly to assure they’re always plugged into the right stream of information.

Groom & Associate’s comprehensive database of construction professionals & tradesmen is kept current and responds as the industry changes and adapts. Our database doesn’t live alone, it functions alongside and is kept in perfect coordination with a global network of contacts with whom we’re in constant contact, each profiting from the synergy and symbiosis close cooperation brings. The winner is always the employer, because they benefit from our drawing from a pool of talent that performs well above par and is of a quality few can claim to offer.

We’ve built our construction recruiting division to stand tall, solidly capable and to reflect our ongoing efforts to be first among many. And true to Groom & Associates philosophy, being best only makes us want to try harder.


Groom & Associates, a solid business partner.

The Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) is one of the biggest mega-hospitals being built in North America with an estimated cost of $2 billion.  Merging and then relocating 3 major hospitals into a single location, the project has been underway for 6 years now and has a projected delivery date of 2021.  That’s just to give you an idea of the scope – it’s bigger than big and we are glad to say that Groom & Associates has been a contributing party in staffing efforts.  In fact, since 2014 they’ve sourced and placed 50 skilled professionals in construction and project administration and we continue to rely on them to help us find qualified candidates. Groom and Associates has been a solid and reliable business partner.
