Hi, I’m Alex!
I moved to this beautiful city from a very small, quiet town in West Wales. When the time came for a change, an extremely big change it was!
Once I arrived here it took the path that many people take, namely starting a Temporary assignment whilst searching for my true calling. I felt that I needed a career that was challenging and rewarding, and it was during my personal job search I happened across Elizabeth Michael.
After spending time with Olivia and Claire, I was given the opportunity to meet John, which resulted in me being offered a position within the Permanent Division. I cannot think of anything more rewarding than helping people to find their way to an occupation that they will thrive on as much as I do.
When I’m not working, I’m running around after my gorgeous daughter, Madison. She certainly keeps me on my toes! Making memories with her is my favourite thing to do - especially the endless games of hide and seek!
Thanks for reading.

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
Hi I'm Antony and I've been here before!
I spent 5 years managing the temp desk here many years ago with a lady called Sarah.
Since then I've travelled the world twice, worked as Senior Recruitment Officer for a large London based Hospital Trust and as an Employability Broker for Nottingham City Council Economic Development. I spent 10 years project managing various employment contracts for a large welfare to work organisation across the East Midlands.
Sarah has gone from "temp to perm" and is now my wife and I am the proud father of 3 very rowdy children Jasmine, Max and Harry.
Outside of work I find myself busily ferrying children between gymnastics, swimming, football and Taekwondo and just have enough time left to go to music festivals and football matches.
I look forward to speaking with 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!
