When did your journey begin?

I joined James Gray in April 2010 as a Trainee Consultant, I had around three years of sales experience within the automotive industry and didn't know much about construction and engineering recruitment, but with the encouragement from the directors and help from my experienced colleagues I was soon progressing.


Describe your role

I lead the permanent recruitment team at James Gray. My team of niche consultants focus on the recruitment of consultancy engineers and contractors within the construction and engineering industry. My role as the division lead is to grow the division out of Scotland to the rest of the UK, servicing International, large national, large regional and small to medium sized organisations.


What do you love about James Gray?

No two days are ever the same. Every day we have creative challenges to solve, and I love it. The most satisfying thing is the fact that I've built genuine relationships with both clients and candidates.


What do you like to do in your spare time?

Outside of James Gray i've been growing another division of my own, my wee boy Sebastian and baby daughter Ilara who keep me very busy. When I get the chance I sneak out for a game of golf, although my handicap seems to be going in the wrong direction these days!
