Halcrow strengthens Glasgow team with 5 new appointments

Following a number of recent project wins, and with ongoing involvement in some of the city's biggest projects, Halcrow has made 5 new appointments within its Glasgow office.

The global engineering consultancy behind recent projects such as Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, Finnieston Bridge and the White Cart River Flood Prevention Scheme, has made the appointments as part of a major recruitment drive in Glasgow.

Halcrow is committed to training and developing over 420 staff within a range of sector groups across Scotland. It has strengthened its Glasgow team by introducing 5 new faces at various levels within the company. Looking forward to a planned office move later this year, Halcrow anticipates several additional appointments will be made in the coming months.

Recent appointments include; Debbie Reilly, graduate electrical engineer; Alan Ruiz, senior nuclear safety engineer; Stephen Gorton, major bids manager, nuclear; Emily Rudkin, energy engineer; and Douglas King, environmental health officer.

Recently relocated from Halcrow's Leeds office, Debbie Reilly moved to Glasgow 3 months ago and has already been given the opportunity to work on a prestige construction project in Sharjah in the Middle East.

Debbie commented; "Halcrow offers the opportunity to build a rewarding career and the chance to travel has been a real bonus for me. Halcrow has offered support every step of the way and facilitated my training and development. I'm looking forward to working in such a different environment in Sharjah and the reassurance that Halcrow will encourage me all the way calms any anxieties I had of working in a new country."

Part of Halcrow's refreshed nuclear business; "Nuclear Focus", Stephen Gorton, major bids manager, and Alan Ruiz, senior nuclear engineer, re-affirm Halcrow's position as one of the leading consultants in the nuclear industry. Alan brings specialist nuclear experience to assist Halcrow on some challenging projects, developing appropriate nuclear engineering and safety solutions. Stephen, who is completing an MBA at Warwick Business School, has been instrumental in the company's "Nuclear Focus" launch.

The recent appointments signal on-going growth for Halcrow in Scotland, following on from the appointments of Neil Johnstone to head its operations in Scotland and northern England and Donald Bell as Glasgow office regional director.

Halcrow is a recognised leader in the maritime, transportation, water, property, and development sectors. Its skills range from planning and design to frontline project management and construction supervision. With a staff of over 5,000 professionals, Halcrow is currently undertaking projects in over 70 countries from a network of more than 60 offices worldwide.
