Director and Lead Recruiter - Engineering and Construction

My name is Louise, I am the owner and lead recruiter at Assegai Recruitment.

I founded the company after more than 8 years working as a Recruitment Consultant, specializing in the Engineering,  Construction, Quantity Surveying, Manufacturing and Supply Chain industries.

After all those years of experience gained, I decided it was time to start my own business out of the passion I have for people and business.
