Business summary & vision

Tunnel Construction is a global industry that continuously employs 1000’s of people every day of every year. Current forecasts suggest this industry will continue to expand, globally, as new technologies and environmental demands start to emerge. In particular as cities grow their infrastructure needs to go below ground which means more tunnelling and the need for more personnel. 

Tunneljobs.com was created to offer a link between industry employers and specialist construction jobseekers.  No other general construction recruitment service can offer the knowledge, wisdom and experience we can.  Nor can they offer a specialist candidate database such as ours. We set the benchmark in providing a professional, qualified and skilled resource to a rapidly expanding industry. 

The ‘project’ nature of tunnelling means the workforce is in constant flux, with the need to be agile and responsive to the ever-changing demands of the industry. This is truly a ‘global’ workplace, with candidates needing to be flexible and willing to travel to every corner of the world to find work.  No specialist tunnelling dedicated recruitment resource currently exists to serve this market. Tunnel construction companies are having to use and rely on generalist recruitment services. The industry needs a specialist which is where tunneljobs fits into the market. Tunneljobs understands exactly what personnel a company needs on any type of major tunnelling project.
