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.

Michele Thorogood Senior Driving Recruitment Consultant

Michele heads up our Driving Division, bringing with her an incredible 20 years’ experience in driver recruitment. She found Top Job after having them recommended by a client, who said how good they are to work with. After meeting the team and the Directors, Michele knew that Top Job was for her because she loved the fresh and exciting approach that the team and management take towards solving problems and making their service better each day through innovation and group contribution.
Michele’s favourite buzz is when she meets a client, gets to know them and knows exactly where to place them to fit best. According to her, there’s no substitute for getting to know people well. With her motivation, we’re looking forward to seeing Top Job Driving being the best and busiest desk in Essex!
