Meet Our Team

ASH MAHMOOD

Director

I manage a fantastic team of Staff, Care Consultants, and Managers to deliver an exceptional recruitment service for health and social care staff and care organizations across the United Kingdom.

I fell into recruitment purely by chance having worked in the Residential care sector for a number of years as a Residential Support Worker, Team Leader, Care Manager, and Trainer in managing challenging behavior in residential settings

On a professional level conceptualizing the idea of an agency delivering exceptional care staff to health and social care organizations in the UK and then delivering this concept through Care2Recruit is my biggest achievement to date

MARIANNE NORMINGTON

Permanent Recruitment Manager

Temporary Social Care Division

West Midlands

I joined Care2Recruit in May 2018. This was my first recruitment role and I have successfully worked my way up from Recruitment Consultant to Recruitment Manager within the 4+ years at Care2Recruit. I previously worked as a Family Lawyer and having come from a 20-year legal background making a complete career change was a big step for me but it has turned out to be the best thing I have ever done.

I recruit into the Children’s Residential Sector, and I manage the West, Central and South Midland regions. I recruit for a wide range or roles within the sector from Children’s Residential Support Workers to Registered Managers and Executives.

This is an area that really interests me, I have a personal interest in the welfare of vulnerable children and young people, and I have been able to transfer skills and knowledge from my experiences as a Family lawyer to my current role.

I have seen Care2Recruit grow from it’s embryonic stage 4 years ago to being one of the largest specialist recruitment companies in the sector. We all work as a team, we have a great working relationship with flexible working options within a relaxed environment.

We all work extremely hard individually and also as a team. We also all share in the benefits we work hard for and have fun along the way.

Felicity Such

Regional Recruitment Consultant 

Temporary Social Care Division

Southern Counties

From the tender age of 15 I have worked, firstly following the crowds and training to become a fully qualified hairdresser and barber but this unfortunately didn’t last as I felt that it didn’t give me the job satisfaction that I strived for. At this point I decided that I wanted a change a ventured into the world of property and very quickly made my way up the ladder to become the Branch Manager of the local Sales and lettings Office. Although I thoroughly enjoyed this job and worked within the property sector for just over 12 years, I still didn’t feel that I was doing the right job for me. This all changed when I received a phone call From Ash and he introduced me to the world of Care Recruitment and this is where I have been for the last few months. I can honestly say hand on heart that I feel this is where my calling is, I come to work each day feeling positive and excited for what the day ahead will bring whilst also feeling that I am making a difference to the world and this to me is what I would call all round 360 degree job satisfaction.

Biggest Achievement

I have had many achievements in my life but I would say the biggest one for me is when I travelled around Asia. As a person I have always relied on my creature comforts, I like having familiarity and naturally being a very organised person felt terrified at the thought of getting on a plane and travelling half way across the world to another country not knowing where I would be from one day to the next. Travelling was always something that I never thought I would ever be brave enough to do but I am so thankful that I faced my fears and did this as it was the best decision I have ever made. Travelling opened my eyes to other cultures and made me thankful for the life I live, it also forced me out of my comfort zone which enabled me to see that sometimes by living without fear the world can be a beautiful place. It made me stronger, more adventurous and less fearful of the unknown and for that I will always be grateful as it has made me the person that I am today.

Why Care2Recruit?

Why Care2Recruit ? The question for me is Why not Care2Recruit ? From the very first telephone conversation with Ash I have been made to feel at ease and welcomed as part of the work family. The very first time I walked into the office and met the rest of my work family I was instantly made to feel welcome and like I belonged. The training although intense is second to none, it is thorough, factual and no question is ever a silly one and this doesn’t stop after the first 2 weeks, I am constantly learning and Ash and the team are always on hand to help me strive to do better and support me 110% in doing this. As a company Care2Recruit are a selective company that employ dedicated people with the vision of success and promotion within.

About Myself?

As a person I am a friendly, outgoing, chatty person who will help anyone that I can. I am a positive thinker and a glass half full kind of girl. In my spare time I enjoy socializing with friends and family, taking holidays and short breaks away, I also enjoy listening to different types of music and have a wide genre selection. I enjoy reading anything from crime to romance to factual books, one of my latest books being ‘Who moved My Cheese’, which is a great book if you are looking to get some perspective and positive thoughts back into your life. Aside from these things I enjoy going to the boxing, horse racing and many outdoor activities.

Leanne Rowley

Recruitment Consultant

Temporary Social Care Division

Worcestershire & Herefordshire

I have worked in the Care Sector for many years working my way up to management. I have recently changed my career to specialise in recruiting for the care sector. 

Biggest Achievement

Within a year of working at one of my previous companies I helped turn the business around from a ‘requires improvement’ CQC rating to a ‘Good’ CQC rating

About Myself?

Danesh Lone

Associate Recruitment Consultant

Temporary Social Care Division

Worcestershire & Herefordshire

I am newly inducted into the world of recruitment, eager to learn more and expand my knowledge. I have spent the majority of my time in education and university, now moving into the workplace I am eager to learn and excel in a positive environment.

Biggest Achievement: I would say graduating from university was a very proud moment for me. I would also add the various sporting achievements I have obtained across Football, Cricket and Martial Arts are something I am pleased with as sport is something I take interest in heavily.

Why Care2Recruit?

I feel Care2Recruit is an exciting, forward-thinking company and highly rewarding to be a part of, they provide a wonderful service to some of the most vulnerable individuals in the UK with the highest form of professionalism and quality. Additionally, it is a very welcoming team that like in the name CARE for their workers and the service they provide.

About Myself?

I am a positive, enjoyable person and love to be active. I mainly spend my time, maybe a bit too much time reading up on or watching football, who needs Netflix? A tad too passionate but Liverpool till I die! I love going out and eating food, but I don’t think it’s all too healthy for me or my bank balance. A cheeky Nando’s and the Liverpool game is my idea of a great weekend.

I joined Care2Recruit in January 2020. This is my first official job; I started as a Junior Administrator and then worked my way up to a Recruitment Resource within a year. I was very lucky to be given a chance to grow  as a person after completing my IT degree in college. This opportunity has led me to move up in the business and learn new skills.

Biggest Achievement
My biggest achievement is being able to present in front of a group of people. When I was younger I always struggled with presenting in front of anyone. Since working here I have done a presentation on Equality and Diversity in the workplace successfully. This have given me more confidence in myself and my work as well.


Why Care2Recruit?
Care2Recruit is the perfect place to start your career if you aren’t sure on what you want to do. The staff are incredibly friendly and supportive which makes it easier to have a great relationship with each other. This way we are able to work as a team as well as individually. Working here with a great environment around me has given me the opportunity to be my best self.
