Business summary & vision


Tunnel construction is a global industry that continuously employs 1000’s of people. Current forecasts suggest this industry will continue to expand and grow worldwide, as new technologies and environmental demands start to emerge. As cities expand, the infrastructure must improve, and going underground is essential, creating more tunnels 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. Through our link with tunnelbuilder.com (sister company) tunneljobs has over 20 years of experience which sets the benchmark for 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 personnel needing to be flexible and willing to travel to every corner of the world to find work.

For employers, tunneljobs.com enables them to take advantage of a time and cost efficient global recruitment solution, allowing them to find tunnelling experts in every field reliably, now and in the future. Getting it right first time - the right resource in the right place, with the right skills reduces the need of expensive re-recruiting.  Tunneljobs.com provides employers with an efficient way to source highly qualified applicant’s rich in education, experience and diversity from throughout the world. 

For candidates, it’s a fast and easy ‘one-stop shop’ to find their next tunnelling project. We have access to every single tunnelling project in the world using the information gathered by Tunnelbuilder.  Our team will help match your skill set and future aspirations to the correct job we are offering.

We do things differently

We are here to help not hassle, much of what we do is for free for tunnellers and when it comes to construction companies we want to help and make the process of finding staff fast, reliable and consistent.
