Infrastructure and construction are increasingly viewed as the vehicle for transforming economies, creating a demand for private and public sector development, often financed through public-private partnerships, PFI and other innovative financing methods.
Rockpools has been retained to identify top level talent solutions across a wide spectrum of infrastructure projects, including bridges, housing, rail, ports, energy infrastructure, such as nuclear generating stations, telecommunication networks, hospitals and other social amenities. We also recruit to multi-national contractors and suppliers.
In our experience, mega-projects require a unique approach often with extensive involvement of multiple stakeholders due to the diverse interests, timeframes and investment involved. Carbon reduction targets and sustainability are now critical issues in the pursuit of sustainable development and technological improvements in construction. We also work with our clients to develop strong in-house ‘intelligent client’ capability, often critical to the partnership process and delivering successfully on time and budget.
Examples of our work have included Chief Executive, Board Members, Director of Infrastructure & Utilities, Director of Construction, Olympic Delivery Authority; Project Director, Forth Bridge, Transport for Scotland; Programme Director, Emergency Services Mobile Communication Services Programme, Home Office; Non-Executive NED/Chair, GuarantCo, Private Infrastructure Development Group; Director of Infrastructure, Faithful + Gould; Group Chief Executive, Robertson Group; Chief Executive, Robertson Construction; Group Business Strategy Director, Land Engineering.
