Hello I’m Hannah
I head up the fabulous Temporary Team at Elizabeth Michael.
After completing my A levels I was unsure of what career I wanted to pursue but decided to start a Marketing & Advertising course at Lincoln University, after a short time I found that the course wasn’t quite right for me and left to find my dream career (I wasn’t really sure where to find it). I started a role in Recruitment and haven’t looked back since. It is extremely satisfying, exciting and very rewarding and also allows me to talk all day which I am very good at! I am incredibly proud to lead the Temporary Team at Elizabeth Michael.
In my spare time I enjoy travelling, long walks in the countryside, Pub lunching and spending time with my friends, family and Husband Jake.
Thank you for reading; I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello there! I’m Zach.
I moved to Leeds to study Sport and Exercise Science at university but after a year and a half I realised it wasn’t the course for me - I think my love of all things basketball throughout school and college had something to do with it.
I decided to put all my energy into the hospitality industry and soon discovered a passion for cocktails. I already had generous amounts of drive, confidence and dedication to learn; just throw in a few high end cocktail bars, a splash of fine-dining restaurants, and a whole lotta’ London and you’ve got yourself an exciting career!
After several years in the capital, I decided I wanted to explore more of this ginormous world we live on; so I purchased a ridiculously large backpack, a plane ticket and a working holiday visa in Australia. I was only expecting to be down under for a year before moving on - little did I know I would fall in love with the country (continent!), the people and most of all Melbourne. It’s an absolutely amazing part of planet Earth and I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
However after nearly 3 years halfway around the world, it was time to come home for some quality family time. I had definitely been missing my parents, 3 older sisters, and niece - who was missing her favourite (and only) uncle; we’re quite a tight knit bunch!
Feeling slightly disillusioned about what to do next, I was pointed towards Elizabeth Michael by my oldest sister who had previously used the company for temporary work, eventually resulting in a permanent placement. However 24 hours after my registration with EM I found myself in front of John Hyde, Managing Director, discussing a career in recruitment I never knew I wanted. After a lengthy, revealing chat I was offered a role here and the rest is history.
I look forward to getting to know your story...
Hi, I am Helen
I am part of the Temporary team here at Elizabeth Michael.
I studied Travel and Tourism at college and had some amazing experiences including going to The Gambia. I loved the course but wasn’t sure if this was an industry I wanted to go into.
Once I had decided that university wasn’t for me I went straight into work where I began my career in a hotel as a receptionist. I thoroughly enjoyed my year there but felt it was time to move on and find something different.
My next role was as Customer Service Coordinator, 3 thoroughly enjoyable years but my feet were itching! I left to do some travelling where I went to some amazing places including Australia and Thailand as well as many European destinations.
Upon my return I started working for Elizabeth Michael and I am happy to be part of the team!
In my spare time I enjoying travelling, going to the theatre, cooking, playing cards and spending time with family and friends.
I look forward to meeting you soon

Hello - I’m Sally, from the beautiful county of Cornwall originally, but have not been there for some time as I lived abroad for nearly ten years, and now live here in the lovely city of Nottingham.
I have worked as part of the Elizabeth Michael Team for well over 10 years, and I have to say, it has been quite a journey!
I originally joined as part of the Marketing team and as much as I found this work rewarding, I also discovered that other aspects of the business particularly intrigued me. I found myself compelled to offer to help in administration tasks across the office, becoming involved in the advertising of roles, credit control and anything else that I could try my hand at.
Eventually, I realised that I so enjoyed this new aspect of my role that I was delighted to be offered the opportunity by our Managing Director, John Hyde, to join the Administration Team on a permanent basis. A few short years down the line, I am now heading up the Finance/Administration Department and loving every minute.
After working in the Sales and Marketing arena for more years than I care to recall, I thrive on the constant progression and demands of the role. I have learned many things during my time at Elizabeth Michael, not just the skills and abilities necessary to efficiently run the Finance/Administration department here, but on a personal level as well. Quite honestly, I didn’t know I was grown-up enough to shoulder the responsibility that John had trusted me with!
It’s amazing what one can achieve when a little faith has been placed in them.
When I am not at work, after a workout in the gym I like to relax with a glass of wine, play my Xbox One or PS4, go to the cinema and try local restaurants with my fiancé, Patrick.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Hello, I’m Sam,
I am a Nottingham girl through and through, and as they say there really is no place like home.
After leaving University, you could say I got stuck in a rut! I had no clue what to do next. From leaving school I had worked in a fashion retailer part-time basis but after University this became my full-time role and I progressed to the role of supervisor.
After a year’s supervisory experience, I felt I was ready to move on.
A friend suggested I approach Elizabeth Michael; I was invited to their offices to register where I was asked if I would be interested in working with the Elizabeth Michael team, specifically in the Administration and Support division. Following a meeting with John Hyde and Sally Hosken I was absolutely over the moon to be offered the position as this was an offer I simply could not refuse.
I am still learning something new every day and best of all no two days are the same. Looking back a few years ago a career in recruitment would not have crossed my mind – I am very happy I took the plunge!
When I'm not sleeping, or eating, I love spontaneous outings, spending time with my family, holidays and long country walks. Also, I consider myself a TV/film junkie and a huge animal lover.
Thank you for reading, I look forward to helping you.

Hi, I'm Jess
A countryside raised girl with a love for the great outdoors and all animals.
Upon leaving sixth form, I knew university wasn't the path I wanted to go down so I got myself a job in high-end retail. Meeting and helping new customers everyday was something I really enjoyed, but after a lengthy discussion with my partner, we realised we were ready to start new careers in a new town, and we chose Nottingham.
After he quickly secured a new job, I moved with him in search of a new career for myself, first stop was the local recruitment consultancy - yes you guessed it – Elizabeth Michael.
After meeting with the consultants to discuss my ambitions and options, I was introduced to Joh Hyde, with whom I spent a couple of hours finding out about Elizabeth Michael, and John finding out about me. I was delighted when he offered the opportunity to work as part of the Elizabeth Michael Team and instantly knew it was a company I’d love to work for.
In my spare time I love to explore the country and try new food. I have three crazy border collies that accompany me on my adventures, who also like to eat my new food!
I look forward to meeting you soon!

Hello, I’m Jem and I am a Nottingham born and bred gal.
I grew up in Linby Village with my Mum, Dad and two younger sisters. After finishing my education at the National Academy, I went on to study Travel and Tourism at the Adams College, choosing this subject as it is a particular passion of mine. After qualifying I sought gainful employment and somehow ended up working in the public sector for the NHS as a dietetics assistant, a far cry from travel but none the less a very rewarding post that helped me mature into the world of “real” adults!
After a number of happy years with the NHS, I still had that passion to see the world. In 2014, I finally took the plunge and moved to Australia with my Fiancé. We were fortunate enough to be able travel the length and breadth of this beautiful Country. I count the 12 months we spent there as one of the best years of my life so far. It also taught me that family is everything and I came back to the UK with plans to marry the love of my life and settle into a more dynamic career.
It was during my time in Sydney that I successfully worked for a Global Recruitment Consultancy for six months. Upon my return I eagerly sought employment within this private sector and was delighted to join the team at Elizabeth Michael. A job I love and that is where you will find me today, totally hooked and always willing to go that extra mile to match the perfect candidate with their perfect employment. Why not take the plunge like me and see what the future holds for you, I am at the end of the phone ready and eager to help you make it happen.
