Give us an insight into the career to date
Career started in advertising and 11 years ago progressed into Executive recruitment, working with Facilities Management and Building Product Manufacturers, putting use to my education having qualifications in Building Studies and Building Surveying. Ran my own Facilities Management Recruitment company for 2 and a half years and was enticed back into the corporate world recently by an old Director who I’d previously worked with for 7 years
What does career success look like for you moving forward?
Helping TS Grale become a recognised specialist within the FM sector at mid to senior level. Having previously built a successful team to service the sector, the ambition is to repeat the task and have a team of FM recruitment specialists who provide an exceptional service to our clients demonstrated by a high level of repeat business
So, what does Alistair think of the recruitment industry?
It’s as competitive as ever with no room for cutting corners. I’ve always been encouraged to stand out from the competition by delivering on what’s been promised and by being honest and transparent.
Why TS Grale?
I was approached by one of my previous Directors who now is Head of Practice at TS Grale and who I worked with for 7 years, building a highly successful FM Division. The opportunity to continue and expand on what we’d previously achieved was too good to refuse, particularly considering TS Grale’s approach and values match my own!
