CLT Recruiters is a specialized talent search firm focused on the construction industry in the New York City area.  We hold fiercely the belief that an organization's leadership is only as strong as the talent it surrounds itself with.  Our recruiting agency is fully dedicated to supporting our clients and candidates as they undertake the search process.

Founded in 2014, CLT Recruiters focuses on a niche segment within the construction sector in the tri-state area.  The largest part of our client-base are general contractors and real estate developers who manage impeccable high-end residential renovations and design-build projects.  The candidates that we place on a regular basis are assistant project managers, project managers, site supervisors, and estimators who have experience working in the luxury residential construction market.  While these are the roles we are always hiring for, we place candidates in various roles that support the function developers and contractors.

Our placement success has earned us word-of-mouth referrals which has expanded our client network to commercial contractors and skilled subcontractors who generally work in level 4-5 finishes.  We are proud to have earned the trust and recognition of our clients. Our objective is to put quality firms and quality candidates together. Doing this is the best and only way we know how to earn repeat business and it is the lifeblood of our firm. We work with some of the most reputable firms in our industry and are consistently on the front lines, knowing what staffing needs exist in the marketplace.
