We are saddened to announce the death of our well-respected colleague, Graham Clark. Graham, a Recruitment Consultant for Search Health and Social Care passed away last month after a brave battle with cancer.
The team would like to pay tribute to him and everything he brought to Search life.
Graham joined Search Health and Social Care in Aberdeen just over a year ago, and soon embedded himself into the role. Over that time, he developed and grew an established desk within the Aberdeen area, and was well liked by everyone he came into contact with. He quickly became one of Search Health and Social Care’s ambassadors; popular with clients, candidates and colleagues alike.
In spite of his illness, Graham was determined to keep on working and he did so with courage. He took a practical approach to business as usual in order to keep his team going through lockdown, and was fondly seen as the Father figure of the Aberdeen office.
Craig McEwan, Senior Divisional Manager; Graham’s line manager and friend, said:
“I have never met a more passionate and committed individual to clients and candidates. Not only was Graham an excellent consultant but someone who I am honoured and privileged to call a friend during the last year of working with Search. He will be sadly missed. He has worked alongside Emma to grow something special in Aberdeen and it’s only fitting that we continue to grow as a tribute to him. I will miss you mate.”
Graham was an incredibly hard worker, and Search is grateful for his commitment to the business and his teammates. During lockdown, his energy, cheerfulness and positive attitude was seen every morning on the team Zoom calls. We celebrate and remember his can-do attitude, which always shone through.
Tributes for Graham have flooded in from clients and candidates alike, which is a testament to the amazing man he was, and how well thought of he was by everyone that knew him, both professionally and personally.
It goes without saying Graham will be greatly missed by all of the Search team, and our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.
We at Linn Moor are all devastated to hear this news about Graham. He was someone who we could always rely upon to help with staffing coverage and more often than not, was able to pull rabbits out of hats for us at short notice. He will be missed by us all.
Our deepest condolences to his family at this difficult time.
Graham was a credit to your company always pleasant, going the extra mile that made Search for us our first choice when needing staff. I am really fortunate that I was able to meet up with Graham and had a lot in common, including football team. I know that he was really enthusiastic about charities and even offered to help us raise money for anything we needed for the service. I will miss his frequent emails with activity suggestions during this crazy time .
Please extend our sympathies to his family and Emma.
I always found Graham to be efficient, enthusiastic, approachable and very interested in the needs of this service. He sourced several ideal candidates to assist us in getting up and running and I’ll miss his proactive approach to his role.
Please pass on our sincere condolences to Graham’s family, friends and colleagues from all at Turning Point Scotland’s Aberdeen Outreach Housing Support team.
Graham was a top class professional who we very much enjoyed doing business with at Inspire. Graham and I discovered we had something in common quite early on in our dealings with one another when we realised that he used to holiday every year whilst growing up in my hometown of Portsoy - which he was very fond of and where he still had many friends.
He was a lovely man and he and Emma made a very effective team indeed. We will certainly miss him.
