Michelle Mumford, Managing Consultant

Michelle Mumford

With 10 years recruitment and HR experience, I manage our Marketing team, which includes PR & Comms, Digital Marketing, Marketing & Brand, Product & Category, for agencies and in-house across the UK.

I have built up a depth of knowledge of the many industries my client serve and the specialisms that my agency clients offer. You could say I am sector and specialism agnostic!

Before I moved into agency life, I worked within HR in the leisure and hospitality industry, but naturally gravitated towards a role in recruitment because this is what I loved most. My career has always involved people and building strong relationships wherever I go.

I love content, I love social media and I have a passion for all things PR. I am a firm believer that relationships are key. Through my love of building relationships, I pride myself on working closely with my clients to truly understand their business and long-term goals, and with my candidates to know the type of working culture that will help them thrive. Recruitment is a marathon, not a sprint; it isn’t about ‘placing that job’ but about working together for the long term and working toward the same end goal in partnership.

If you are a company looking for the perfect person, or a candidate looking for a new role in the UK, get in touch, I would love to chat!

“I was lucky enough to connect with Michelle during my redundancy and from start to finish she was fantastic. She found me a fantastic job that was not only a great industry fit, but also a great cultural fit. She was professional, friendly and incredibly supportive. I’d highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a job.”

“I have nothing but good things to say about Beyond The Book. Simply one of the best recruiters out there.”

“Both as a client and a candidate I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Beyond The Book to others.”

“Tracey is one of the rare breeds of recruiters who gets both sides. She has worked in good ad agencies herself and collaborated with great Creatives, so she has a really good understanding of creative skills and culture fit. She understands recruitment needs immediately and always goes above and beyond for her clients. She doesn't just fill holes as a lot of recruiters do; she matches the right candidate to the right role both in terms of aptitude and attitude. I've taken on two Creatives through Tracey, and both have turned out to be excellent hires.”

“​Michelle has been a delight while helping me secure a new role. She was very attentive, professional and overall, a great point of contact. I would definitely recommend her support if you are looking for a new opportunity.”
