Meet Marc

Marc Smith

Director

We know Marc as the 'ideas man'. He's a forward-thinking kind of chap, always wanting to keep Top Job on the front foot, especially when it comes to offering a better service for our clients or making it easy for our team to do their job well.
Marc has been involved with the business since 2011, where he took an ownership stake in one of Colchester's favourite recruitment agencies. Since then he has seen it through the recession and on to bigger and brighter futures. Nine years in, and Marc still loves working alongside local companies, getting to know the people involved and how he can best help them to achieve their goals through partnership.

Meet Corrie

Corrie Brennan

Division Manager 

Corrie has been with us since 2016 and comes from a background of working in the city dealing with compliance within Healthcare Recruitment.
For Corrie, having a role where he gets to work to make a difference in someone’s life each day is rewarding. Knowing that he connects people with the means of paying for Christmas, rent, or putting food on the table is what drives him.
Corrie’s focus is entirely upon our temporary workforce, dealing mainly with industrial candidates and clients.

Originally starting as a trainee, Lauren soon moved to work not only in temporary recruitment but permanent recruitment too!  More than anything, Lauren enjoys matching people to their dream job, but nothing really beats the satisfaction of finding the right person for a hard-to-fill vacancy!

Meet Shannah

Shannah Matthews

Health & Social Care Recruitment Consultant

Shannah has been with the Top Job Team for over a year now. She joins our care team to bring her knowledge and experience of the sector to the Top Job Care desk. Shannah saw Top Job as an opportunity to grow her career in a place where her ideas, attitudes, commitment and dedication would flourish. Top Job's use of new technology to improve the client and candidate experience has made her realise she's in a place that truly values innovation and new thinking.
Shannah is one of our true 'people persons' and she likes the aspect of her work that allows her to get to really know and understand clients and candidates, not just in the context of their business or career path, but on a more personal level, which allows her to make sure that we get the best of matches for everyone concerned. She seems to like nothing more than the buzz of putting together a client and a candidate into a win-win.

Meet Sasha

Sasha Fowler

Senior Commercial Recruitment Consultant

Sasha brings with her extensive experience of recruiting in the office sector and we're delighted to have her as part of the team. We pride ourselves on the value that experience and different approaches can bring. She joined us from a global recruitment organisation, and she can't wait to work in a smaller environment, where her ideas and creativity can be given space and life in a team that has real passion and drive for doing the job well.
Whilst we already 'do office staff', Sasha’s understanding of office dynamics will enable us to make even better matches. Her approach is to truly understand the team fit, knowing how much impact the right or wrong person can have in an office space, from a social and business perspective. Top Job's bespoke approach will allow her to spend the time she wants, getting to know each client and candidate in order to get the fit exactly right. That way, people tend to stay in post and grow into the new teams. She hopes that new vacancies are created by their promotion rather than people leaving because they aren’t happy!
An office team is vital to the success of any business, requiring teamwork that promotes hard work and loyalty. You need to ensure that new additions to a team fit in with the business and colleagues which often mirrors the success of the business. I feel that close knit relationships motivate employees and align them to work harder, cooperate and be supportive of one another. My specialism is finding the perfect match for the business and the individual to promote growth and progression for both parties. Her old slogan was "Don't let your recruitment be risky; choose Sasha Comiskey!" We just know she'll live up to it!
