Dave’s expertise lies in Architecture and he has successfully recruited in this field for over 16 years.
His career was established in London under the supervision of an Architect, this gave Dave an in-depth understanding of both the design and technical requirements needed to succeed within the industry.
Working for a national recruitment firm, he worked in the capital for 6 years placing architectural staff with a variety of clients including award winning AJ100 practices, global consultancies and small bespoke studios.
In 2008, Dave returned to the North East with the same national recruitment firm and expanded his geographical reach to the North and Scotland. It was in the North East he first met Andrew Mackay, they worked together at the same recruitment firm for 4 years.
Dave shares the same values as Andrew and left a senior management role at a national organisation to join Coleman James as an Associate.
Offering a flexible approach has resulted in Dave placing candidates globally from Durham to Dubai. At Coleman James, Dave is part of the senior management team and heads up Architecture on a national and international basis.
David is married and in addition to his passion for all things architecture he is an avid rugby fan and likes to sample real ales.
