Meet Our Managing Consultant Niall Collins

Niall has been a valuable member of our team for 4 years now. We asked Niall some questions about working for Flagship, his role, as well as his opinions on the current market. This is what Niall had to say.


Tell us a bit about yourself and your role at Flagship?:

I have been working for Flagship for 4 years, starting as a Recruitment Resourcer, progressing up to Managing Consultant. I now manage a team of 4 consultants.

What roles do you recruit for and with what sort of clients?:

I recruit for Quantity Surveyors, Project Managers and Procurement Managers. I recruit for some amazing consultancies, both large multi-national and smaller independent practices.

What is your view on the market at the moment?

The market seems to be in a very good place at the moment, bouncing back quickly and strongly. We are as busy as we have ever been and always on the lookout for talented candidates.

What advice would you give a jobseeker looking for work?

My advice would be to stick to one or maximum two trustworthy recruiters and keep track of where your CV has been sent. When at interview stage, make sure you are fully prepared with the company well researched and have questions ready for the end.

What makes Flagship stand out in a crowded industry such as recruitment?

The main thing that drew me to Flagship was being experts in our field. Our knowledge of the Construction Consultancy market is second to none. I also like the ethos of the company and like to think we do things the right way, treating candidates and clients with respect.
