Look no further, we have the talent you need

Our journey began with Irishman Andrew Harte. A civil engineer by profession, Andrew had relocated from Ireland to Melbourne and started a civil plant-hire company. Through his interaction with plant-hire clients, it became apparent to Andrew that the labour shortage in the construction industry wasn’t being adequately addressed by traditional recruitment agency models. Bringing his down-to-earth Irish charm, sharp business acumen and first-hand knowledge of the construction industry, Andrew created Eire Workforce, recently rebranded to EWS Recruitment.

For more than a decade, EWS Recruitment has partnered with leading Australian construction companies to provide professional recruitment services that meet their staffing needs.

Connecting people, building teams

At EWS Recruitment we believe that successful placements are based on partnerships. Our mission is to connect thriving construction companies based here in Australia with skilled personnel sourced in Australia and internationally. We pride ourselves in delivering high quality, reliable and professional services to our clients. Since our inception in 2011, we have earned a reputation of excellence through providing the highest standards of labour workforce to our increasing clientele all over Australia.

While the company initially began as a trades and labour specialist, the business has grown in response to the Australian construction industry’s skills shortages and our clients’ needs. We added a white-collar division, sourcing talent for contract and permanent construction placements at every level.

Today we offer four specialisations within the construction industry:
