Amy Saunders

Senior Recruitment Manager

I started my working life as a lawyer, working in property and litigation. Following a career break travelling around Asia and Australia, I decided on a change and embarked on a career in recruitment.

Having trained with the world’s largest recruitment firm, I moved into professional services, specialising in Accountancy & Finance. After 8 years climbing the ranks in large regional businesses, building successful recruitment teams, I took the opportunity to move to Toronto, Canada where I worked for one of Canada’s largest construction companies. This is where I found my passion for all things infrastructure and construction! I was fortunate enough to be involved in several projects in Ontario, both from a recruitment and operational perspective, building bridges, highways, and LRT.

In 2021, I returned to England and having worked with Anna-Maria previously, jumped at the opportunity to launch 2fawcett’s Infrastructure & Construction division. I love the culture at 2fawcett, particularly the ethos of empowering recruitment. Women represent only 11% of the workforce in construction and I will be proud to play even a small part in helping build a better future for women in construction.

In my spare time, you will find me either on a golf course (I have an incredible drive but it’s all downhill from there!) or walking my English bulldog, Hank! I am also a keen skier and Scuba diver. If the weather isn’t so great, you’ll find me in the kitchen cooking for the family, baking or making my legendary chilli jam!

Background

Joined the Army at 16 before working in Health and Fitness, Sales and most recently Recruitment.

Spent 2 Years working at Derby County Football Club, in Sales & Events.

Moved in to Recruitment, in 2017 beginning as a Resourcing Consultant, progressing quickly to Recruitment Consultant within the Logistics and Supply Chain Industry.

Interests

I am an avid fan of Football and Golf. When I am not playing these sports or in work I am generally keeping fit and running in the gym or socialising.

Becky Bradley

Managing Consultant

Hi I'm Becky!

I am enthusiastic and bubbly with a love for working within recruitment and why wouldn't I?
I enjoy building long lasting relationships by guiding and supporting job seekers in finding their dream career all whilst working in partnership with employers across a variety of different industries. For me, what I do is much more than just a job and I couldn't imagine doing anything else!

Background
In 2014 I found myself graduating from De Montfort University, shortly after I was given the opportunity to work for a global agency as an administrator and resourcer. Very quickly I found myself bitten by the recruitment bug and was promoted to consultant and the rest, as they say, is history. Fast forward 7 years, one multinational corporation and one independent agency later and I'm still as passionate about this industry as the day I started.

Interests
Outside of work you'll either find me with a gin glass or dog lead in my hand!
I am a dog mum to a sassy Patterjack called Maya, I love to socialise and spend all my spare time with family and friends and, as of this year, I am a mentor for a charity who support and empower young women.

I am looking forward to joining the vibrant team at 2Fawcett so please, don't be a stranger and come say hi!

Annabel Hotchkiss

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Hi there!

My names Annabel, most people call me Belle though. As an enthusiastic, bubbly, dedicated and energetic individual. I pride myself on building long lasting relationships. Don’t be a stranger, feel free to drop me a message if you are looking for a new and exciting role in engineering!

Background:
My sales journey started in the sports industry. From Sports & exercise science at university, to PT and sales consultant at a gym in Essex. After working alongside Redbull I found myself with a natural aptitude for sales. After the pandemic I decided I preferred keeping my gym activities as a hobby for myself and focus on my passion for sales roles helping people. I took my first steps into the recruitment industry and haven’t looked back since - ‘Choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life’.

Interests:
As you’ve probably guessed, fitness is a huge part of my life. Normally its lifting weights, exploring mountains or riding – although the only thing you will see me not doing anytime soon is running! If you can’t find me at the gym or stables, try the local bars with a few of my friends.

Georgia Shaw

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Im Georgia!

I’m just returning to the wonderful world of recruitment after having my second baby girl. Having this time away has made me realise how important it is to work for a company who offers a fantastic supportive environment to work in and having worked with Mia in the past and seeing what she has built here at 2Fawcett I really cannot wait to start!

I have worked within recruitment for 7 years now. I pride myself on the fact I have long standing relationships with my clients and candidates alike, having only ever worked within the Office Support industry. I believe I am able to offer you the best knowledge and support.

I like to work incredibly efficiently whilst managing my clients and candidates expectations!

Outside of work you will find me spending time with my gorgeous girls and my husband! We also run our own business so all of that together definitely keeps me busy! That’s why we absolutely love our holidays and at any opportunity I will book even just a night away to have some time away from the craziness ✨

Jessica Thorpe

Recruitment Consultant

Im Jess. Positive, friendly and approachable.

I started my professional career within the residential sales industry where I discovered my passion for helping people and recognised my natural abilty to build and maintain strong, genuine relationships.

Four years later I found myself relocating to the middle east and taking an unexpected leap into an oportunity that allowed me to grow and develop personally whilst working for a globally renowned organisation. I spent several years travelling 100s of destinations globaly.

Since returning to the UK I remoulded my love for sales and working with people into my first recruitment specific role in early 2021. Specialising within the industrial sector I have worked closely with both candidates and clients and pride myself on spending time to ascertain the perfect mutual fit for both, whilst I adapt and tailor my recruitment approach to best suit the clients business needs with proven results.

I genuinely believe surrounding yourself with success empowers you and others around you to be successful. Since meeting Anna-Maria and the rest of the 2fawcett team I felt instantly at home. I am excited to embark on the next chapter if my career within such a forward thinking company that supports and rewards success and hard work on both a personal and professional level.

I spend my spare time running my small events styling company which is my creative outlet. My passion for travel means whilst I am not on holiday its likely I will be pretending to be with a glass of Aperol in hand and surrounded by good company.

Samie Mcvea

Recruitment Consultant

Hi I'm Samie!

Having worked in customer facing and sales roles over the last 10+ years, I have a passion for giving the best customer service and helping people. I enjoy meeting new people, building lasting relationships so I’m really excited to start my new chapter at 2fawcett Recruitment!

Background

I first started in Recruitment in 2017 where I specialised in the Industrial sector. It was very fast paced and busy and I learnt so many new skills to help me progress from a starting role on reception, moving to team support and then a seat at the desk as a Recruiter, getting to know all of my clients & candidates, what they’re needs were and using my skills to find suitable matches for both. I mainly dealt with temporary roles and there was nothing better than the hard work paying off, finding the right fit for a job and them being taken on on a permanent basis! Happy client happy candidate!

A few years later (and one of the toughest years for us all 2020) I made a huge decision to take on a new opportunity as an Sales Negotiator at one of Nottingham’s leading estate agency’s. I quickly adapted, matching buyers to their dream homes and negotiating to achieve my sellers the best offer! I moved from Sales Negotiator to Sales Manager to Branch Manager opening up a brand new office from a cold start. I loved the challenge of getting our name out there in new areas of Nottingham and building up the branch with a new team of negotiators, training them to be the best they could be! I enjoyed helping people with the next chapter of their lives and seeing their happy faces on Completion days!

The moment I met the team at 2fawcett I knew I’d be happy here! Being surrounded by successful, hard working professionals is going to allow me to grow even further in my professional career, adapting skills and learning many new ones along the way!

Interests

Outside of work, you’ll find me spoiling my puppy Maverick - I can’t help it! He’s a miniature dachshund and let me tell you, his cute looks are deceiving - he’s definitely a Maverick! Me and my fiancé love to go away on holiday and visit new places. My favourite to date was New York - where he proposed on Central Park! I enjoy spending free time with friends and family and let’s not forget the large Pinot!

Oliver Hooper

Recruitment Consultant

I’m Oliver! Your friendly Engineering Recruiter, here to help you every step of the way!

Background:
I kicked off my career diving straight into a recruitment apprenticeship for 3 years. This degree covered a variety of sectors, gaining a wide variety of recruitment experience before finally settling into the Engineering division.

Having a hard working mindset not only benefits in a professional manor, but has allowed me to progress in my hobbies such as swimming in the Olympic trials. Now, I use my fitness enthusiasm in a different industry - training as a heavy weight boxer competing in various competitions. I am a hardworking, motivated individual, who doesn’t shy away from those 4am training sessions prior to work!

Interests:
Out of work, I'm a keen amateur boxer with 7-0-0 record (all 7 KO victories too!). When I’m not playing sport, I love to travel on the weekends with friends and family, trying new things and enjoying life.

Hi I'm Charlotte!

Whilst studying at university, I simultaneously worked in a customer service environment, and gained brilliant transferable customer service skills.

After getting in touch with the 2fawcett team, I discovered the business to be an exciting, hard-working and personable company. I am friendly and approachable and always strive towards providing an optimal, comfortable and enjoyable service and environment for all clients.

Interests
I enjoy walks in the Peak District, spending time with family, socialising with friends, cooking, music, and the occasional glass of bubbly!

For Clients

The right people for your business.

For ten years we have successfully placed candidates across a wide range of industries and roles.

Struggling to find the perfect match for a specialized role?  Our unique combination of experience, a trusted network of contacts and a genuine human touch can make the difference.

Anna-Maria has worked with me over the last 8 years and I have found her to be extremely professional and helpful when I have been recruiting. She has been able to find me varying levels of candidates that always matched the profile for what I was recruiting for at the time.

Head of Planning & SystemsLogistics Company

Laura is a professional and driven recruiter who can manage multiple projects at any one time with ease. She is personable with exceptional eye for detail.

Global Recruitment ManagerLogistics Company

Anna-Maria is a fun and sociable human being whilst remaining professional and focused on the task in hand at all times. She uses unique ways to determine what her clients need and has a good understanding of her area of expertise.
 As a pragmatic leader and a realist, she can grasp ideas in a holistic manner and still pay attention to minor details. 
Anna-Maria is diligent and personable – two qualities that define her completely.

Material ManagerNordics Business

Having worked with Laura for nearly a year now i have been extremely impressed with both her knowledge and proactive approach to the recruitment industry - she takes everything within her stride and always with a positive and upbeat attitude - its been a pleasure!

Operations DirectorAutomotive Industry

Anna-Maria has been working with me for the last 6 years and has always managed to find the right candidates for my department needs, she also makes a personal visit on a regular basis to see the team that she has helped recruit. I would highly recommend Anna-Maria for your recruitment needs.

Network Planning ManagerLogistics Business
For Candidates

The right role for you.

We have a wide range of roles from trusted employers. We match each and every candidate with great care to the right role.

We pride ourselves on building lasting relationships and will always be here to support you and your career opportunities.

I was contacted by Anna-Maria about a position via email, which are normally bland and in-inviting but her wasn’t! It was full of information about the position, warm and friendly. I emailed her and after a short conversation she had explained everything to me. Unlike most recruiters she kept in touch all the way with a weekly phone call and updates, which gave it the personal touch that you’re not just a cash cow but a person. On my first day she checked in with me once I’d finished and upon arrival left me a beautiful care package. Even though she helped me get a role over a year ago, she still keeps in touch with mail to work. Highly recommend recruiter if you don’t want to feel like a number and a person who matters.

MichelleServices

I cannot recommend 2fawcett Recruitment enough. Since losing my job last year due to COVID-19, Laura and Anna-Maria have done everything they can in searching for the right company and role for me. Both are very professional and thorough. Communication was 10/10.
Whilst the search for my next move was in progress I was placed in a temporary assignment by Arran, who was also professional and on hand to answer any of my questions.

Overall 2fawcett do exactly what they say... they empower others.

MichealaFMCG

I can’t recommend 2fawcett highly enough. Both Anna-Maria and Laura were amazing throughout the entire process of looking for my current role. They really took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for and what I wanted in my new role. The communication from both was brilliant, throughout the process, keeping me fully in the loop at every stage. The team supported me throughout, giving brilliant information on the company and the role, which is so important when researching an organisation. They also supported me on speaking to another recruitment team on a role I turned down, which I was not expecting!

Since I have started my new role I’ve had the pleasure in dealing with them on multiple occasions for additional roles that we’ve filled here and again have found their attention to detail, attitude and effort to be second to none.

I’ve also worked with their sister company Max Workwear and, not surprisingly, have found exactly the same high level of customer service there too!

SteveManufacturing Company

I cannot recommend Anna-Maria highly enough. She has great ability to be both friendly and professional and took the time to understand my requirements. I had a pre meet before my interviews and follow up call afterwards. I never had to constantly chase her as she was always proactive. My experience with Anna-Maria was excellent.

Group Procurement ManagerLogistics Business

I have had the pleasure of knowing Anna-Maria for the past 2 years. Anna-Maria is a detail oriented, pro-active professional with a deep proficiency of solutions. Thanks to her interpersonal skills and good humour she has a great relation with both company clients and employees. I strongly endorse Anna-Maria.
