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.
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.
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.
Senior Recruitment Consultant - Manchester
I joined Macdonald & Company in 2017 and pride myself on giving both professionals and the companies I work with the best possible level of service and always endeavour to make the recruitment process as smooth and efficient as can be for all parties involved.
Since joining, I have gained a great deal of knowledge and continue to refine my expertise as a specialist recruiter for property consultancies, real estate services providers, retailers, property developers, financial institutions, local authorities and public sector bodies. Geographically I specialise in the Midlands and northern UK markets including the West Midlands, East Midlands, North West, Yorkshire, North East and Scotland regions. I have aspirations to be the most connected recruiter in the property sector from the Midlands northwards.
Providing maximum value to everyone I work with will establish me as the trusted advisor professionals turn to for career management advice and employers turn to for their hiring requirements.
I place surveyors on both permanent and freelance/short term contracts and offers my clients a bespoke, value added service including contingency and head hunting solutions. The types of surveyors I recruit 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.
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.
Senior Consultant - Manchester
Working across East and West Midlands, North West and North East UK regions and Scotland; I partner and recruit for the leading Property Consulting and Property Development employers.
I focus both within private and government led sectors for the placement of the top 20% of market professionals. The key skills and roles I recruit for include Building Surveyors, Project Managers as well as Quantity Surveyors and Cost Managers.
Recruitment Consultant - Manchester
I work within the Manchester office in the Regional Building and Construction team recruiting for Building Surveyors, Quantity Surveyors & Project Managers throughout the Midlands, north, up to and including Scotland. I recruit graduates and right the way up to Director level spanning across all sectors for employers in real estate.
I joined Macdonald & Company in 2018 having spent 8 years as a Manager in the insurance sector. Naturally, giving people a platform to escalate 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.
