“I have been working for the Cummins Mellor Group for over 3 years now. Before joining the company, I started my career in Hospitality Management, working in several well-known establishments including Gleneagles 5* Golf Resort and Spa, Nigel Haworth’s Northcote Group, and the Award Winning Seafood Pub Company.
On joining Cummins Mellor, I initially worked in our sister company, Chefs Jobs UK (CJUK), placing interim and permanent chefs across the UK. Since 2016, I have been working in our Lancashire division, Cummins Mellor Recruitment, as a Recruitment Consultant focussing on commercial office, marketing and financial permanent appointments.
It’s my role to support Lancashire businesses, advise them on attraction, selection and retention techniques to allow them to harness the very best people for their organisations. We will also give them access to skilled candidates who can add real value to their businesses.
When I’m not in the office you’ll probably find me at a good eatery – because I just love to eat out and experience different cuisines and exceptional service. I love to travel and visiting somewhere new, equally you can’t beat a good walk in the Lakes! I’m also partial to a G&T!!”

As Lancashire based recruiters since 1990, our team’s mission is to find and keep the very best Lancashire talent working in our superb local businesses. I’m so passionate about our wonderful County, its people and its industry and feel very strongly about supporting businesses to help them attract, select and retain the best talent that Lancashire has to offer.

Alongside my day to day role I also work with local schools and charities helping with employability skills and careers advice. I believe that I have a duty to expose young people to the many opportunities that this County has to offer and provide them with guidance on things they can be doing early on to boost their career prospects.
As fore-mentioned, before joining Cummins Mellor I had an extremely successful career working in one of the UK’s leading Education Recruitment businesses; fast paced, challenging and in an extremely competitive market, this role gave me a great grounding in recruitment and I’ve loved it ever since.
