A qualified solicitor, Machell has nineteen years of recruitment experience working across Birmingham, Nottingham, Milton Keynes and Bristol and a number of different professional disciplines.

Commenting on his appointment, Machell said: “It’s a great pleasure and an exciting time to join the team at Macildowie, it’s a company I have respected externally for a number of years. The culture within the business is fantastic and is headed up by an immensely strong leadership team.

“Macildowie continues to set the standard across the recruitment industry and I’m looking forward to help steer the execution of the company’s ambitious growth plans over the coming months. The jobs market is the healthiest it has been in years, with an increasing number of opportunities now appearing across all sectors, and levels of seniority.”

Also joining the leadership team as senior manager is Paul Don, who will initially lead the Procurement & Supply Chain, Sales & Marketing and Business Operations recruitment teams in the Milton Keynes office. With over 16 years’ experience in recruitment, Don will play an instrumental role in helping Macildowie to achieve its ambitions growth plans in Milton Keynes.

Also joining the finance division in its Leicester office is recruitment consultant Layla Bardill.

These recent appointments follow the recruitment of four new members of staff in November; in Leicester, trainee recruitment consultants Mollie Driver and recruitment consultant Nik Pearce, and in Nottingham, senior recruitment consultant, James Robinson.

James Taylor, director of customer development and marketing at Macildowie, said: “It has been a tremendous year for the business, and we look forward to carrying this momentum into 2016. We have just announced our biggest ever learning and development budget for next year, as we look to provide our staff with the avenues to build and develop their careers within the business.

“I look forward to seeing the development of these new members of our team and am excited about recruiting further talent in the New Year, as we look to take on 25 new members of staff in the next two years.”
