SOME job agencies connect labourers with construction crews or apprentices with experienced workers, but there's one agency in town connecting engineers with industry.

The Guinea Group has slowly built up its expertise over the past two years to also include safety training and workshops.

A recent addition has been a physical presence in the small industrial area of Lyons St, Gladstone.

Operations manager and industrial designer Nathan Breslin said whether the projects were long term or short, The Guinea Group could adjust with industrial needs.

"While someone like Manpower supply labourers, we specialise in technical aspects," he said.

"We supply engineers, draftsmen, project managers and anybody technically qualified."

Mr Breslin said it was about supplying a dynamic workforce, with site-based roles.

"We go to a lot of effort to give quality people without the premium price," he said.

"You know what you want but don't want to employ people for two years… well, we find the talented people and there's heaps out there at the moment who will work on shorter contracts."

TGG also provides safety workshop facilitation, shutdown safety support, project controls and commissioning staff, as well as asset management, plant shutdown and executive administration personnel.
