We Have Some New Faces…

We are thrilled to introduce our two newest team members. Brendan has come on board as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant, joining our fast-paced Industrial team, while Megan has joined our innovative Marketing Team as a Design Executive.

With a background in Care Recruitment, Brendan brings a range of skills which are hugely beneficial when dealing with client requirements. When Brendan isn’t placing candidates, he can be found on his motorbike which he loves to ride whenever he gets time.

Megan loves all things design-related. Her previous experiences in both digital marketing and large-format print make her a Swiss army knife when it comes to all mediums of design. Outside of work, Megan enjoys baking, dancing, and gardening.
