“I joined Cummins Mellor in May 2014 as Head of Recruitment following four and a half years working within the Education Recruitment sector. After becoming a Director of the group in April 2016 my main focus became leading the Cummins Mellor Recruitment division.

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. In addition to this, our team are also dedicated to helping support local talent in their career search and advising and educating them on the right steps to drive forward their career.

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.

When I’m not here at Cummins Mellor HQ I enjoy nothing more than a good, long walk with my partner Stephen and our dog Archie. I also have a thirst for travel, a love for musical theatre and am a huge foodie!”
