About MKH Search

Since inception in 2019, we have established ourselves as market leaders in our field, with our core markets being in the Heavy Civil Infrastructure, Water/Wastewater Infrastructure & General Buildings. 2024 will see us scale further within our newly developed Corporate Services & Renewables divisions.

Here in our HQ based in the City of London, we are managing assignments for US construction companies ranging from small, $50 million contractors, through to some of the globe’s largest construction and engineering firms, with global revenues of $10 billion or more.

We have a track record of high performance/high-level recruitment and boast an extensive network & client base. Our longer-term plan is to grow into a global specialist with the opening of a US office in the pipeline for 2025.

To enable that, we need people that will relish the opportunity to scale their career as recruiters & head-hunters, and develop into managing profitable business units, with the end goal of becoming the leaders of our business.
