Director - Manchester
Since moving into property recruitment in 2001, I have built up extensive experience in providing recruitment solutions for the regional Real Estate sectors.
Typical organisations I recruit for include property consultancies, retailers, property developers, financial institutions, local authorities and public sector bodies. These employers are based across the West Midlands, East Midlands, North West, Yorkshire, North East regions and Scotland.
I help surveyors find jobs on both permanent and freelance/short-term contracts and offer my clients a bespoke service including contingency and headhunting solutions. The types of surveyors I recruit include all providing Real Estate Services or Development professionals. These include commercial property, asset and estates management, professional surveyors (including valuation, landlord and tenant, and rating surveyors), property development and investment professionals as well as surveyors working in the rural environment.
I also lead the management and strategic direction for our Manchester Office across all sectors.
Associate - Manchester
I am an Associate based in the Manchester office, operating in the freelance/interim market recruiting surveyors largely under the ‘General Practice’ umbrella (including property asset managers, valuation, landlord & tenant and rating surveyors), extending to project management and FM professionals.
Covering from the Midlands up to Scotland, my core clients incorporate public sector organisations, consultancies, developers and retailers.
Finding short and medium term solutions to issues such as peaks in workloads, specific fixed term project requirements, maternity and paternity leave, and sickness cover, my connections undertake roles on hourly and daily rates and also salaried fixed term contracts.
Senior Associate - Manchester
After over a decade of management experience in the sports industry, my aptitude for solution finding and communication led me to a successful career in property recruitment.
Recruitment requires the ability to analyse and interpret client need, and accurately find those professionals that will complete and improve business goals. It is this puzzle within an extremely competitive market that drives me to know my clients and candidates inside and out, to make the right placements at the right time, and consult on the changing requirements of all parties.
The surveyors I recruit provide Real Estate Services or work in Development. These include commercial property, real estate asset management and estates management, professional surveyors (including valuation, landlord and tenant, and rating surveyors), property development and investment professionals as well as surveyors working in the rural environment. Covering areas north of Worcestershire such as Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and roles in Scotland.
Outside of the office, I’ve been a climber and mountaineer for nearly 20 years, including representing GB in the 2013 Ice Climbing World Cup Series. Moving to the Peak District the same year, my wife and I spend our weekends climbing and hiking across the UK and Europe, when we’re not renovating our house.
Recruitment Consultant - Manchester
I joined Macdonald & Company in 2000 following a career working within chartered surveying and conveyancing.
I am based in the Manchester office, but work across East and West Midlands, North West and North East UK regions, Scotland and Wales. I recruit for the whole spectrum of business support roles but within the specialism of real estate.
Senior Associate- Manchester
I have a proven and demonstrable track record in recruiting high quality, hard-to-find chartered Building and Quantity Surveyors and Project Managers throughout the regions. These professionals have gone on to open offices, become leaders in their fields, and help build some of the outstanding landmarks in the UK today.
Having retrained from a career in academia, I can boast delivering complex, high-level roles over the last 5+ years within both the public and private sectors. I hold a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics from The University of Durham (which I rarely get to use anymore), yet always get asked to work out how to split the bill at the end of a meal, which wasn’t even a module on the course.
With a wife and 2 young daughters, I spend most of my free time tidying up the house and wondering why the bathroom is occupied again. I also enjoy squeezing in some quality time with my Playstation when I can, and sharing my love of film with my eldest.

I joined Macdonald & Company in 2018 having spent 8 years as a Manager in the insurance sector.
Naturally, giving people a platform to make the most of their careers was transferable across to recruitment and I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of identifying personalities of both businesses and individuals in order to build connections.
I work within the General Practice team recruiting across Real Estate and Development fields; including commercial property, real estate asset management and estates management, professional surveyors (including valuation, landlord and tenant, and rating surveyors), property development and investment professionals. I recruit graduates and right the way up to Director level spanning across all sectors for employers in real estate and work within the Manchester office covering a geographical patch throughout the Midlands, north, up to and including Scotland.
