Carl Wright

Director (FIRP, AMICE)


Carl is a search and selection specialist with over 20 years’ experience recruiting within the built environment sector in East Anglia. He is a fellow of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals (FIRP) and an Associate Member of the Institute of Civil Engineers (AMICE). He co-founded Technical Moves with Andrew Childerley in 2005. 

In addition to running the business, Carl recruits and advises on appointments across the full spectrum of our sectors including Architecture, Civil & Structural Engineering, Building Surveying, Property, Land & Development, Project Management, Commercial, and Executive appointments. 

Prior to recruitment, Carl's career started with a degree in civil engineering and seven years working with two of the UK's leading consultancies. As a specialist recruiter with real industry experience, you can have the confidence that Carl understands both the local employment market and your technical requirements. 

Carl has developed long term relationships throughout East Anglia & Home Counties, representing engineering consultants, surveying practices, developers, and businesses across the built environment sector. With his business experience, technical background, and extensive network of local connections, he is well placed to support your next career move or partner with you to find quality staff for your business. He likes to represent candidates and clients on an instruction basis with the majority being engaged exclusively. 

As a STEM Ambassador & Engineer by background, Carl is keen to promote the positive long-term role of a career in the Built Environment, by offering career and CV advice to graduates and volunteering at school employment and career events. 

Away from recruitment, Carl is a keen, but slow, runner and an avid cycling fan who dreams of one day following the tour or just escaping to the mountains in France.

TM stayed in regular contact throughout the process & were very supportive. More than that, they went over & above what would have been just 'good' by working late into weekends.

We have worked with Technical Moves for several years in a number of recruitment areas and can safely say they are far and away one of the most professional executives we have met in their field.
