What is your job role?IMG_9719

Head of Recruitment

Who is your hero and why?

Michelle Mone – she’s such a committed and ambitious business woman. I recently read her autobiography and was amazed by her journey to success. She never gave up – despite adversity and that’s a message that constantly drives me.

What is your motto/favourite saying?

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure”

Describe a perfect Sunday …

Getting up at the crack of dawn and heading up to the Lake District with my partner Stephen. Enjoying a long walk up one of the mountains or fells and then having lunch in a little café. Then back home for some chill time, a nice meal, good film and a glass of wine – bliss!


What has been your best moment since working at Cummins Mellor?

Our 25th Birthday celebration. Getting to celebrate with our wonderful colleagues both past and present – meeting with some of the influential people that have supported CMR throughout its growth and chatting thorough stories of the last 25 years. It was a fab night , it brought together an amazing group of people and it just cemented what a special business we are.


What skills would you like to have gained in 10 years?

I would like to enhance my leadership skills and become the most motivating and inspiring manager than I can be.


If you weren’t a Head of Recruitment what would you be?

A drama teacher.


What’s number 1 on your bucket list?

To travel the world – in particular to see Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Thailand, Canada, The West Coast of America and Iceland.


What is your favourite thing about working at Cummins Mellor?

My colleagues – everyone is so like-minded, supportive, friendly, energetic and motivated. They’re like a second family to me.


If you could learn a new skill what would it be?

To play a musical instrument – I’d love to master the Piano or the Saxophone – maybe both!
