Since an early age, I have been very driven and focused to be the best. I competed in middle distance running at both national and international levels before I embarked on my professional career. Competing at those levels has instilled a real sense of self-motivation and the need to complete all tasks to the highest standards.

Prior to joining the company, I was tasked with delivering a world-class service to prospective and current owners of prestige vehicles. In this role, I learned the importance of the client taking you on the whole journey with them. It’s only when you walk with a client and see the experience they go through that you can understand exactly what is needed to create the ultimate outcome – 100% satisfaction with the service. It’s that attitude and attention to detail that I bring to both our facilities management clients and candidates.

What people say about Michael…

Michael 3

I’d like to say a huge thank you to Michael for helping me find my new role! Michael has been a true professional from start to finish, checking in with me every step of the way. If you’re looking for a new role in FM, I can highly recommend speaking to Michael first! Thanks again Mike!

Michael 1

Michael was the only recruiter who showed genuine interest in what I wanted from a new role, asking all the right questions, and then only put forward roles to me that he knew I would have a genuine interest in. When I found a new role, and I in turn had to recruit more people, I didn’t hesitate to turn to Michael for support in seeking candidates, knowing how well I had been previously treated as a candidate. Michael is a credit to the industry.

Michael 5

I’ve had great pleasure in working with Michael as both a Candidate and a Client. He has always been not only very supportive but has also taken a genuine interest in understanding what roles would actually be suitable. I commend Michael for this thoroughness and excellent timely communication skills.

Michael 8

Michael was everything I would hope for from a recruitment agent. He knew my skill set and actually put me forward for a role I may not have personally considered. He then keep me fully updated throughout an extended hiring process, and also assisted with final negotiations to ensure that I received the package I wanted. I would highly recommend both Maxwell Stephens and Michael to any FM looking to further their career.

Michael 7

I have worked with Michael at Maxwell Stephens for a number of years now and I can honestly say they are one of the most professional FM recruitment firms I have dealt with. From a candidate point-of-view, I have always found Michael to be efficient and organised in regards to securing interviews for me, etc and the team as a whole are always contactable and approachable. Michael is a very talented recruitment consultant and one I will be remaining in contact with for future roles.

Finding the right job can be arduous and although there are hundreds of recruitment agencies out there to help us in this task, I believe that some are so focused on the Client that the Job Seeker can feel as though they are being treated like a second class citizen. This is not the case with Maxwell Stephens. During the process, Michael listened to my requirements to gain an understanding of my capabilities, personality and expectations and kept me fully informed at all stages of the recruitment process. I know who I’ll be contacting when my current contract ends.

Michael 6

After months of struggling to find a job, I approached Michael for help and he managed to acquire an interview for me straight away with a fantastic company which resulted in me acquiring the perfect job. With efficiency, continual support and attention to detail, Michael provided me a huge step forward in my career. I would highly reccomend Michael to any one looking step up and forward in their career!

Michael 4

Michael was great to work with; very interest in where I was at in my career and what I wanted my next steps to be. He kept me up to date throughout the process, was easy to get hold of when needed,  calling me before and after interviews to see how they had gone and so on. It was great to deal with someone who understood FM and what I was looking for. I’d definitely work with Michael again in the future and would recommend others to do so.
