Meet our Team

Mark Wilcock

Branch Manager

I have been part of the Meridian team for just over 5 years now, having joined in the summer of 2018, and I am now the Branch Manager for Manchester M&E/Construction. Before working at Meridian, I graduated from Leeds Met University in 2014 with a degree in Sports Marketing, and after getting back from travelling South East Asia & Australia; I started in M&E recruitment with Rullion in 2015 before joining Meridian in 2018 so I have worked in recruitment now for 8 years. 

I enjoy the day-to-day challenges of recruitment, managing the team and relishing the opportunity to grow and diversify the location here in Manchester. It doesn’t come without it’s challenges but that’s what keeps you on your toes! Meridian has a fantastic name within the Built Environment sector, particularly here in the North West and it’s a privilege to support a range of national blue-chip contractors and regional SMEs with their labour requirements. It’s a bit of a cliché but every day is different in recruitment. 

Outside of work, I like to travel/visit as many countries as I can & I try to get to a few new destinations each year. I’ve done a few adrenaline activities on my travels, too, such as cage diving with sharks, sky diving and zip lining, and there are still a few more I want to tick off on my bucket list! I’m into my music, particularly house & techno & aim to sneak a weekend to Ibiza in where I can! I enjoy going out and trying new restaurants - I’m a big fan of Mediterranean and Asian cuisines particularly and I also enjoy watching the football, particularly Manchester United & getting to the odd game here and there. That being said, I’m partial to a lazy day in front of the telly on a Sunday, I’m a big fan of binging series such as Stranger Things, Ted Lasso and Narcos.
