Working with Agilité Solutions

We’re a growing organisation that creates spaces where people can live, work, and play.

With a solid reputation as a general contractor and fit-out company – for both tertiary and commercial spaces – we strive to include sustainability into our building processes. Our ethos centres around futureproofing our projects – and at the heart of that is our diverse team.

We’ve built a reputation as ‘the resourceful problem solver’ – a trusted partner which anticipates, and mitigates, issues before they arise, and one which is built on a culture of honesty, ambition, and trust.

There’s no denying that the commercial interiors sector is often complex, especially when working on a continent-wide scale. We’ve therefore built a network of best-in-class professionals, suppliers, and consultants, experienced in delivering high quality space planning, design, build and construction services.

Agilité is committed to building a diverse and inclusive team of experts that will reflect our customers and users. We enjoy nothing more than seeing our employees thrive in an atmosphere of togetherness. We therefore aim to continue building a diverse workforce and foster different perspectives and unique ways of thinking – regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, lifestyle, age, educational background, national origin, religion, or physical ability.
