Leading the new Power & Infrastructure Resourcing business enables Brian to combine his extensive knowledge of the construction industry with his experience in building resourcing businesses to meet client aspirations.
For over 30 years, Brian has worked on some of the most challenging and demanding infrastructure schemes, including Crossrail, NWEP and RSAR and the recent delivery on time and to budget of Midland Mainline Electrification project.
Brian’s understanding of how to work collaboratively with Clients from the outset to identify the particular project resourcing needs was developed during his time with McGinley and Shorterm and more recently when he led expansion of the resourcing divisions in both Carillion Rail Resourcing and Powerlines Group.
Brian’s first-hand knowledge of the particular requirements, skills and safety accreditation to meet industry standards is displayed in his management of selection, recruitment, training and monitoring of all levels of personnel deployed to suit defined project requirements.
The new company’s operation will cover deployment of white collar, managerial and supervisory staff as well as blue collar operatives and front line supervisors; all suitably trained and experienced to undertake prescribed roles on power, rail, civils and other niche sector construction projects.
Brian will use his extensive industry knowledge and network of contacts built up over the years, alongside his up-to-date knowledge of skills certification requirements to ensure his team matches individual clients’ particular resourcing needs against demands of the even the most challenging projects programmes. On recent contracts, Brian and his team have successfully provided enough experienced staff and skilled operatives to meet peaks of programme activities such as major weekend rail possessions and blockades.
Brian’s team has also been at the forefront of upskilling personnel, enabling single operatives to undertake several tasks, resulting in increased productivity and financial savings. This approach has overcome regional skill shortages and uneconomic working on projects where production rate is paramount for achieving the programme.
Brian sums up his ethos as “We believe that the key to providing quality resource management starts with understanding your client’s needs and aspirations and only then allocating staff that align with those aims. We encourage collaboration and ownership at all levels”
