Craig Finlayson

Director, United Arab Emirates

After leaving high school I embarked on a training programme as a quantity surveyor with a small private firm in Scotland in 1999. The traineeship allowed me to study part time and at the same time obtain on-the-job experience. In 2002, I joined Currie & Brown in Glasgow and was fortunate to work on many types of projects across different sectors – from healthcare to retail, from new builds to refurbishments.

Viktoria Yasinsky

Associate Director, USA

I started my career in facilities project management. As I gained more experience I noticed that project managers often don’t have enough time to dedicate to the details of project controls. As I particularly enjoyed that aspect of the project process, when the opportunity arose I switched to specialise in this field.

I graduated from Loughborough University in the summer of 2018 with a degree in geography and business management. As my dad is a quantity surveyor, I’ve been around construction and surveying my whole life. His career always interested me, so, despite my choice of degree, I felt construction was an industry I would both enjoy and do well in.

I have been with Currie & Brown since 2007 when I joined as a trainee cost manager, having previously worked in marketing.

I have always known I wanted a career in construction but was unsure what aspect to pursue. After completing my A Levels in 2017, a close friend mentioned his experience as a QS apprentice, so I decided to focus my attention there and joined Currie & Brown in September 2018.
