Who are 4020?

In 2017, Joel established 4020 to provide clients in the Construction, Engineering and Resources sectors with an opportunity to manage their people strategy and professionals sourcing operations a little differently.

Different how? We avoid low engagement, transactional relationships in favour of authentic business partnerships.  We know, terms like ‘partnership’ are used pretty broadly these days but we believe they are in fact quite rare and feel blessed to be working with some extraordinary businesses and be in a position to feel the positive impact we have within them.


The feedback from clients was heartening and our business has naturally expanded to be about more than just Joel’s hopes and dreams – although he still shares those freely with anyone who will listen. As 4020 grows, the utmost attention is paid to ensuring new clients receive the same high levels of service and results to which our existing clients have become accustomed.


What We Offer

It’s no secret, the biggest asset of any business is it’s people so we have made people the very core of our business. 4020 is here to drive your business success through the provision of a full suite of professionals sourcing activities. Whether it be delivering highly effective professionals, standing up a project team or supplementing your in house expertise – whatever is needed to help you win.


The Civil Engineering profession is the design and delivery of Civil Infrastructure Projects such as roads, bridges, rail, tunnels and marine structures. 4020 Consult provide specialists in this area for private consultants, state and local government.

Operational Technology and Electrical

All assets require electrical and operational technology to be secure, automated, and optimal. This includes cyber, networks, SCADA, LV/HV, ITS across renewables/power, utilities, infrastructure, and manufacturing. 4020 Consult provides specialists across this fast-changing technology space.


Water security and drought resilience are critical for sustaining life and Australia’s primary industries. Dam safety upgrades, network infrastructure along with pumped hydro mega projects have attracted record investment from State and Federal Governments in QLD. 


Queensland has committed to 50% Clean Energy Generation by 2032 and investment in large-scale clean energy is booming. 4020 Consult are at the forefront of this sector ensuring we provide the skilled professionals our asset owner, contractor and engineering provider clients need to deliver great project outcomes.

Client Side Building

With most building assets in Queensland being redeveloped and improved over the next decade, hospitals, schools, airport and ports, it is vital we have the right professionals to oversee the business case, procurement and delivery of these specialist projects. 4020 Consult provide these professionals to government, asset owners and consultants.  


What our Clients Say About Us and Our Work

"The 4020 Consult team were engaged to assist us in finding a new CEO for a planned succession. Joel lead the team and went to great efforts to understand our business, its culture and values to jointly develop a profile for a successful candidate and recruitment process to suit our needs. They conducted an extensive search that highlighted a large number of suitable candidates, they then worked diligently through these candidates to present us a long list of possible candidates and discussed the pro and cons of each openly to allow us to short list for interview. The interviewed candidates exceeded expectations and presented a difficult challenge to make a decision. Joel’s communication and openness throughout was outstanding. I would definitely recommend  the 4020 Consult team in any recruitment process and certainly within the senior executive sphere."

What Professionals say About Us

Candidate,Emily, Pesnar

"I'm so grateful for the quick hard work you put into guiding my job hunt. I could tell from our first phone call that you were genuine and confident in your abilities - and it showed when you landed me two excellent interviews the following week. It's always nerve wracking coming into a new country and overcoming visa hurdles to hopefully land a job equivalent to one I could get back home, but you showed me that I can get an even better role in Australia. Thanks for everything!"

Emily, Site Engineer
