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!
