After Nigeria, Niall worked as a Marine Cargo Surveyor for Cunningham Lindsey in The Netherlands (wife is Dutch, hence lived in Netherlands for 7 years) before moving back to the UK to work for International Surveyors and Adjusters in their Scottish Office.
Niall has been working with McAusland & Turner since 2015 and during that time has gained a wide variety of survey experience on a broad range of marine related matters producing high quality reports.
