Nick Grayston

Job role: Director

Specialism: Civil & Structural Engineering - Scotland

I began my recruitment career in 2012, working for a boutique recruitment agency in Edinburgh, where I spent four years recruiting within Civil & Structural Engineering.

In 2016, I joined Conrad Consulting, where I established the Edinburgh office. Following a successful first few years, I was promoted to Director.
 
Primarily, I am responsible for driving the growth of our business, creation and execution of the overall strategic vision and the implementation of company policy across the UK.
 
I have however retained a handful of longstanding clients within Civil and Structural Engineering, for which I still recruit. 
 
The type of positions I regularly recruit for include, but are not limited to; Structural Engineers, Structural CAD Technicians, Structural Revit Technicians, Civil/Infrastructure Engineers and Civil/Infrastructure Technicians. I recruit at all levels, although I am particularly focussed on senior level appointments including Associate, Technical Director, Director, Partner and C-Suite roles.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling, and spend most weekends clay pigeon shooting, walking (or rather being walked) by my cocker spaniel and indulging in all things Sky Sports!

A comment from a candidate...

Nick was excellent in helping me find the perfect new job. He was extremely helpful and made my job hunt very quick and painless by providing great advice throughout the entire application and interview process. He also continued to be of great assistance into my notice period once I had accepted my new position.

It was a pleasure to work with him and I would definitely recommend Conrad Consulting to anyone thinking about looking for a job in the engineering industry.
