Our mission is simple - connecting people – building futures.

Our aim – whether you are a client or job seeker, is to partner with you to achieve your desired results. All too often, you contact a recruitment provider that either doesn't appreciate what it is that you do, or what you want from your next career move. It takes care, diligence, and experience to get it right first time!

From our first site visit or meeting, to well after placement, we work to ensure that both client and candidate are satisfied with our service. At Tech 5, diversity, inclusion, development, and culture are all important when looking for the right candidate or role.

We promote and live by our 3 R's – RESPECT, RESPONSIVENESS & RESULTS. We are passionate about delivering the best possible service to both clients and candidates alike. We want to connect people to help build better futures for everyone.

Temp Recruitment

fast and efficient

​We spend a lot of time building and maintaining candidate pools of various skills to ensure we can deliver on short notice to all our clients and candidates. We invest time and energy on upskilling our temp candidate pool to keep them relevant in a skill short market.

We pride ourselves on quick delivery, providing skilled temps or contractors who can hit the ground running – whether that’s a complex construction site or back-office environment. We aim to save you time, money, and resources by finding temp or contract capability to get your job done.

We can reference check, drug test, and conduct face-to-face interviews with candidates, providing a fast and efficient response to meet your requirements. We aim to fill a role once, keeping your onboarding process short and simple, creating a return on investment (ROI) for your business.


Permanent Recruitment

keeps you moving

​For us, it’s important to listen to your requirements, get an understanding of your company culture and work environment, and understand the team fit you are looking for in a candidate. Then we spend time asking the right questions to establish the finer details of the role, as this will help our team build a clear idea of what your perfect new team member needs to have in their tool kit.

With our consultant's knowledge and expertise, we will utilise a range of networks and recruitment tools to provide you with a selection of pre-vetted candidates. We will arrange the candidate shortlist, set up all the interviews, and manage candidates after the interview process. We look after reference checks and contract negotiations, as these can be time-consuming and stressful.

What they say


​My name is Glenn Mitchell the director of Build FX Ltd, a small building company that does light commercial projects along with housing and Reno's. I have been using Tech 5 over the last 8+years. I have always found them to be great guys to have on site and have always helped me out when needed. Simon is awesome to deal with so if you need extra labourers a hammer hand or some carpenters I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tech 5 - give Simon a call... and get him to buy you a coffee! Thanks Tech 5

GLENN MITCHELL Managing Director

​Datum Projects have utilised Tech 5 as our construction recruitment and labour hire partner of choice for the past 9 years. The reason we keep returning to Tech 5 is their ability to ensure our requirements are actually met through intimate knowledge of our industry.

SETH GLEESON Managing Director

​We’ve been using Tech 5 as our preferred labour supply company since September 2013. We’ve always found them easy to deal with, and most importantly, we can rely on them to be flexible and understanding when the plan changes at the last minute – which is an absolute must in our industry. If we didn’t have such a flexible and adaptive labour supply arrangement, we wouldn’t be able to operate with the speed an efficiency that we are known for.



Thank you Brett, and thanks to Hadis as well, she’s really an amazing employee.


​We have been working with Tech 5 for the past 8 years. They have consistently provided high caliber candidates, in a timely manner. Highly recommend this service.
