Alan Shave - Contract Scotland
Alan Shave
Director

Joining the company as a fresh graduate in 2006, Alan has tried a bit of everything, whether that be cutting his teeth with the engineering consultancies, developing his career within temporary recruitment, sourcing permanent staff for many of the building contractors or helping create our international division. Armed with all that knowledge he jumped at the chance to lead our permanent recruitment section in 2014, with the challenge of growing the team and developing our offering, while making sure that the ‘Contract Scotland way’ remained at the heart of everything we do. In 2016 Alan took on the role of Associate Director and is now involved with all the fun strategy & operational stuff! His proudest achievement is taking the business to parts of the world we never thought we would, as well as helping some of our ‘newer’ colleagues develop into great recruiters.
