I founded Melbreck Technical Recruitment in September 2012. I already had a lot of experience, and I wanted to give people a more straight forward service and work in a better way than I had been able to in the past. I was also ready for the challenge of building my own business (at the same time as starting a family!).
Since I started the business we have grown and overcome many challenges, but one thing that has not changed is the ethos of giving the best service possible, ultimately to help people in the most straight forward and effective way we can. Whatever people may tell you, there is no magic wand in recruitment, and no "one size fits all process". Instead of taking that approach, we take each person, company and opportunity that we work with on their own merits, and work our hardest to help them achieve their goals. Our business is founded on helping people, and each person is different. I always want us to understand that.
We are, and always will be an independent company. As such you will get a personal service from us, whoever you are, and your experience of working with Melbreck will always matter to me personally.
I joined Melbreck Technical Recruitment in February 2013 as a Senior Recruitment Consultant, having already worked in the industry for 3 ½ years. Owen offered me the opportunity to join the business and set up an office in the South with a view to growing the business.
My background was quite diverse when I joined and I already had an in-depth technical knowledge of several engineering sectors. This meant we were able to offer a lot of experience and an adaptable approach to the way in which we worked, this is still the cornerstone of what we offer 5 years on.
I have had a fantastic career with Melbreck so far, with many achievements over the years, the most notable of which was being made a Director of the business in 2016. I am proud of what we have achieved together so far and know that there is much more to come.
It has not always been plain sailing as there have been many obstacles to overcome, but with our commitment to our clients and with how passionate we are about what we do, we will continue to deliver and overcome any challenge that is put in front of us.
