Starting out his career as a qualified Civil Engineer in South Africa and the UK, Neil developed strong site based technical experience working for Tier 1 Contractors on large scale civil engineering projects. He found the transition to construction recruitment seamless as he can relate easily to industry professionals and subsequently spent 20 years working for only 2 recruitment agencies where he specialised in the Building Construction & Property sectors. This stable employment background provided him a network of repeat business and a solid foundation to fulfill his ambition of owning his own recruitment business, Infracon Australia.
Neil’s nationwide network covering the Building and Property sectors, allows him to service the entire property lifecycle from front end client-side organisations, through design development, construction delivery and maintenance. Neil believes in doing what he says he’s going to do, he operates with integrity, honesty, professionalism and goes the extra mile to ensure his clients and candidates are provided with the best recruitment service they’ll ever experience.
As a co-founder of Infracon Australia, Mike brings 20 years of construction industry experience, and over 10 years of infrastructure recruitment experience across Australia providing technical professionals in the civil, mechanical, electrical, and SMP sectors predominantly.
Since arriving in Australia in 2010, Mike’s reputation has been built on delivering a highly personable service, a genuine desire to understand the client and candidate requirements to achieve the best long-term fit and a style that is often described as down-to-earth, humble and authentic.
With a technical background in design, Mike has a keen interest in the design and construction of infrastructure projects with his knowledge developed in the market allowing him to thoroughly engage and understand his clientele, which in turn enables Mike to find that suitable fit.
Like the name suggests, Infracon Australia specialises in Infrastructure & Construction technical recruitment to the Building, Civil Engineering and Property sectors. We cover the entire industry life-cycle servicing organisations with professional personnel on the client-side, though the design process, construction delivery and ongoing maintenance.

I have dealt with Mike since late 2012 and he has always proven himself to be very professional and honest in all my dealings with him. Among all the recruiters that I have dealt with over the last 2 years of tough times in the WA market he has consistently given me good, solid advice and always had the perspective of the recruit in mind. He has successfully placed me once on a good project with good people and had a great feel as to whether the "fit was right".
Neil has always provided a high level professional service and delivered the requested results
Mike is a really good recruitment consultant and spends a lot of time to get to know the candidate, their career history and career goals. He is very well switched on to the market and is extremely persistent and committed to continually searching the market and staying in regular contact with candidates to ensure he finds them the right role. A very personable style and I would recommend Mike to anyone looking in the market.

Neil has been very professional and completely reliable in our business dealings. His honesty and integrity is refreshing and I look forward to our continued working relations and having Neil as a business partner for years to come.
Mike Gray and the Infracon team delivered a highly professional, no fuss, genuine service that helped me secure my new role. Mike brings an authentic and genuine approach towards the recruitment game like I hadn't experienced before. With strong connections in the WA construction sector and a very sound understanding of what's happening right now in the current market, I immediately knew I was in great hands with Mike. Mike found a role that aligned my values with a company that is now my new employer. The process began on a Tuesday and within several, he was able to get me in a room (normally the hardest part for a lot of us..) and the rest of the process was set in stone. I will be recommending Mike and Infracon to my network of industry professionals looking for new beginnings and opportunities in the construction sector.
Neil provided me with a career opportunity 100% in line with my ideal job I described to him. I was always kept up to date with current opportunities available in the market.”
Mike has assisted me over a number years with recruitment in our Construction and Engineering space. Mike has not only been professional and a pleasure to deal with, he has always provided us with quality candidates suited to our business.
