Hi, I’m Alan Spalding and I’m the Managing Director at Elizabeth Michael Associates.

There is never a dull day doing my job which involves interacting with all the elements of the business including sales, customer service, staff development, finance, internal recruitment, HR, I.T, legal, training and whole load of other interesting daily activities.  

I strongly believe that here in the UK we all have a great opportunity to do well, it's all about having some goals, a plan and then taking action.  One of the best parts of my job is helping others in our organisation to achieve their own work and personal goals. 

If you need help finding the right permanent or temporary staff for your business please contact me.  I'm also always looking for experienced recruiters to work with us so please call me for a confidential chat if you are looking for a new opportunity. 

In addition to my role here at EMA I am also the Managing Director of our other group company Approach Personnel, which is a multi-sector recruitment business based at the same Nottingham HQ as Elizabeth Michael Associates. For details of Approach Personnel please visit www.approachpersonnel.co.uk

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 I 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.

I was given the opportunity to meet with the MD, which resulted in me being offered a position within the Permanent Division. I can't 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.

Hi,

My name’s Kelsey and I’m a consultant on our permanent team here at Elizabeth Michael.

After finishing Sixth Form I knew University wasn’t the path for me and was eager to get into the world of work and start earning some money!

I’ve always been a people person who thrives in a busy environment so decided on a job in property. After 6 years and several promotions from Apprentice through to Valuation Manager across 3 branches, it was time for a change.

With Estate Agency to Recruitment being seen as a natural career path by some, I decided to stop matching homes to buyers and start matching candidates to clients!

After nearly 3 years on a Public Sector interim desk I wanted a change and the values of Elizabeth Michael and the emphasis on the importance of honest relationships with both clients and candidates instantly resonated with me.

I love the variety commercial recruitment provides with no two days ever being the same and of course there’s no better feeling than helping someone take that next (or first!) step in their career doing something they love.

When I’m not working I enjoy holidays and road trips, chasing the sun and seeing new places. You’ll often find me at a festival or out with friends, with a drink in hand.

If you’re considering your next move, a new career, or looking for advice for your business please get in touch, I’d love to hear from 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 the MD, with whom I spent a couple of hours finding out about Elizabeth Michael, and him 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!

Divisional Manager

My name is Andy I am proud to be part of the Elizabeth Michael Team! I fell into recruitment a mere eightteen years ago and genuinely can’t imagine doing anything else!

For the last nine years I have been in education recruitment and prior to that I have worked in the commercial and industrial sectors, but I missed the pace of temporary recruitment and am delighted to be working on the Elizabeth Michael Temporary desk.

My passion has always been placing the best candidates into roles they will enjoy, I believe that not all agencies are the same and it is important for me to share the values & ethics of Elizabeth Michael. Nothing beats the buzz of placing the right candidate into the right job!

In my spare time I enjoy breeding quails, raising chickens, engraving and spending time with my beautiful two daughters.

If you are looking for a new role in Nottingham get in touch today and let us help!

Hi!

My name is Hannah and I recently graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BA in English Literature. After three long years at University, I was ready for a change in culture and started actively seeking a job role that engaged and challenged me. I found this at Elizabeth Michael.

In my first serious role after many years in education, I have already learnt so much about the world of recruitment and how important it is to create long-lasting professional relationships with clients and candidates. Knowing that you’ve helped place a candidate in great job role is extremely rewarding: an aspect I find to be imperative in a perspective career. I really enjoy being part of such a collaborative and like-mind group of people here at Elizabeth Michael.

I’ve always loved reading critical literature and then conceptualising what I’ve learnt in posts I share on the blog I run in my spare time. I have fantastic set of family and friends; I love nothing more than socialising and spending time with them in any capacity I can.

Thank you for reading, and I hope to meet 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.
