Design & Build: celebrating 15 years of building Australian careers

Design & Build: celebrating 15 years of building Australian careers

almost 3 years ago By Design & Build team
15 Years

Design & Build are excited to be celebrating our 15th year anniversary on Tuesday July 2nd.  When a significant milestone such as this comes along it’s easy to first reflect about the growth of the business or the wins we have achieved, however for us this celebration is about people.

We are incredibly thankful to all the people who have worked with and for Design & Build over that period, these people really have made the business what it is today. 

Over the last 6 months Design & Build has launched a new brand Public Sector People focusing on the work we have done across the public sector space in the 15 years prior under Design & Build.  As a team we are looking forward to the new financial year and beyond, the success of our two brands has lead us to looking at how we are leading our business.

As such Andrew McGregor is moving into the Managing Director role with Design & Build and Tom Dumper will be moving into the Managing Director role for Public Sector People and Group Operations.

“Having joined the Design & Build team in 2010 as a consultant in Melbourne before relocating to Sydney then leading the growth of NSW I am immensely proud of everything that the team has achieved. 

To work with such a motivated group of colleagues who genuinely care about their industry and doing right by our candidates, clients and colleagues. I am sure that irrespective of the obvious headwinds in our industry we can work towards becoming a stronger and more trusted recruitment agency in Australia. 

For me it’s never been about just tomorrow but where we are going to be next year, 5 years and 15 years from now and with the vision we have along with mission and values we are well and truly on the right path.”

Andrew McGregor - Managing Director, Design & Build

“The response to the launch of Public Sector People by our client and candidates has been amazing we are truly excited about where the business will go over the next 5 years and beyond. 

The team has embraced the challenge of growing into new markets to give our candidates more opportunities than ever before to find the role they want and reward the trust they put in us. Public Sector People has an amazing team and one which takes such pride in our standards around client, candidates and colleagues. 

The people within Public Sector People are the reason for the success to date and the future growth of the business. 2019 has been a really exciting year for Public Sector People and we are all really excited to see what the next 6 months has ahead for us.”

Tom Dumper - Managing Director, Public Sector People and Group Operations

The focus we believe will allow us to work towards the overall mission of being “the most trusted recruitment agency in Australia” and allow the specialism on which the business has been built to remain at the core of who we are.

And again, THANK YOU for helping us make Design & Build the business it is today!
