Award 2016: Branch of the Year
Background: Started my working career within the construction sector as a rigger and progressed to a Lift Supervisor/Crane Co Coordinator. Then the recession hit and I found myself working for an agency doing M&E recruitment.
Progression: I started my career with Meridian as a consultant back in 2011 working for one of the flagship branches with the organisation.

Within three years I have built the branch profits year-on-year whilst taking on new geographical areas and building new teams to support me, but the greatest achievement has to be winning branch of the year at this years annual conference and awards dinner, this was due to my hardworking, dedicated team who are specialists with our chosen sector.
