I started my career with a major UK retailer before joining a boutique headhunting consultancy placing directors with large house builders.
In 2004, I joined Macdonald & Company specialising in the recruitment of Project Managers, Building Surveyors and Quantity Surveyors from graduate to director level for consultancies, developers and clientside organisations.
