Alan Shirley

Senior Project and Recruitment Manager

Al is kept fairly busy with his young family of two daughters, Etta and Wren. When they’re not keeping him on his toes he indulges his love of watching sports – especially when it comes to heading down to Twickenham to watch the Rugby International matches.

Back at home he can usually be found in the kitchen cooking up a storm for his friends and family.

Julia Banks

Senior Project & Recruitment Manager

Julia is a true crime devotee – but don’t worry her passion for this is strictly limited to Podcasts; of which she has a long list of recommendations for anyone and everyone within earshot. However, she is keen to point out that she balances out this love of true crime with the glitz of Rupaul’s Drag Race, the zen of Yoga, and the love of spoiling her pet cat.

Fun fact: Julia once appeared on the Esther Rantzen Show with Wolf from Gladiators.

Vicki Moran

Project & Recruitment Manager

It’s well-known in the office that Vicki is the person to speak to you if you have an interest in all things vintage. She’s an expert bargain hunter and always manages to find those hidden gems. She’s also a passionate vegan, tea drinker and red wine connoisseur – although not all at the same time.

Vicki keeps herself fit with pole dance fitness classes and keeps herself entertained with horror and sci-fi books and movies.

Harriet Connell

Senior Recruitment Specialist

Harriet is by her own admission a restless soul. Finding it hard to sit still for very long she fills her time away from work with the gym, partying the night away at events like the Warehouse Project and long heady weekends at festivals.

The big dream is to do much more travelling. Her favourite destinations so far include Barcelona and Singapore – but she’s already busy thinking about all the places she’d love to go over the next couple of years.

Elle Stephens

Project and Recruitment Manager

Elle enjoys everything that Manchester has to offer; whether that’s the cinema, bars or the many restaurants that goes to with her friends. Her favourite things for some relaxation are reading and watching movies, as well as catching up on whatever TV series she’s currently binge watching.

Of course none of that compares to perhaps the most important relationship in Elle’s life: Taylor Swift. Her love for this legend has put Elle in the top 33,000 listeners on Spotify which requires some serious man hours. For this dedication alone we all stand by Elle and her passion and anyone who’s not on the Taylor train… well, “Haters gonna hate”.
