Engineer hires four to support expansion

Laura MayneSarah McMonagleWSP Parsons Brinckerhoff is continuing with its ambitious growth plans in Scotland, and has employed four staff to support organic expansion and a number of contract wins.

The global engineering professional services consultancy, which employs more than 250 people in Scotland, has put a big emphasis on recruiting fresh talent since the combined businesses merged earlier this year.

New recruits include Laura Mayne (pictured far left), associate in sustainable buildings. She recently transferred from the WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff Sydney office.

She will join Sarah McMonagle (above near left), principal consultant (environment) and Jamie Hodgson, graduate engineer (development) in the Edinburgh office. Norman Sinclair, regional EMEIA Director for risk, compliance and ethics joins the Glasgow office.

These appointments come less than a month after 110 employees from the company came together in their first joint office at 110 Queen Street, Glasgow. It marked a major milestone for the firm, which expects to increase its Glasgow based staff by 35% to about 150 over the next five years.

Director Pete Dunbar said: “Recent contract wins in the central belt of Scotland has driven demand for new staff across all sectors of our business. This range of work bears testimony to the diversity of opportunities at the firm and the number of engineers recruited this year.

“We will continue to encourage talent at all levels especially graduate and internship schemes as we look to recruit the very best this country has to offer.”

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has worked on key public projects including Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Glasgow and the refurbishment of Edinburgh Waverley station.
