Associate Director - London

I am an Associate Director of the Architecture and Design team at Macdonald & Company where I head up the contract and freelance division.

I have over five years' experience in the recruitment of Architecture, Interior Design and BIM. I previously worked in the construction and design industry for over 3 years at an AJ100 architecture practice after studying architecture for 5 years.

I am a RIBA Associate, Ambassador for the Architects Benevolent Society, a visiting critic for Manchester School of Architecture between 2010-2012 and a professional mentor for students of architecture at the University of Westminster between 2014 to 2016.

Director - London

Director - London

I've been recruiting in the design and development space since 2000. Does that make me 'old and wise' in recruitment terms? You decide!

I’d hope that at the very least it means I know what I am talking about. I am fortunate enough to receive lots of referrals and recommendations from both hiring clients and the people I am assisting to find a new job, so I’ll take that as reassurance that I am doing something right!

I have two main streams that I operate in. The first is senior and executive appointments for people from design backgrounds. Anything from Associate up to Partner or Managing Director. The second stream is jobs for people who want to work outside of mainstream design, usually with a developer, main contractor, investor or property consultancy. These roles tend to be Design Management, Technical Management or Head of Design roles.

I seek input and information from others in order that I may advise them correctly. I don’t dress things up to be anything they are not so you’ll always get an honest and useful response from me. I take pride in having an informed perspective on the market so I am able to advise people on the best route to take.

After all these years in recruitment, I still love my work! I enjoy putting people in positions where they can have a positive impact on our built environment. I particularly like working on strategic hires.

Outside of work I like mountain biking, playing badminton, scuba diving, travelling to interesting places and eating out. All of which has come to a distinct halt whist I focus on bringing up two boys!

Recruitment Consultant - London

I joined Macdonald & Company in 2019, almost immediately after finishing Goldsmiths University, where I studied music. Being at University for the last three years' and studying such a creative subject has given me an excellent grounding in a range of skills I am finding are highly transferable to those needed as a Recruiter.

In my free time I enjoy cooking, planning weekends away and being with friends. Music is also very much still a big part of my life, producing both my own and other peoples work when I get the chance.

Working in the Town and Country Planning team under Jeremy Wright, I am excited to learn, work hard and pursue a successful career in Recruitment.
