Anna Glapiak

Finance Recruiter

I came to the UK from Italy in search of good food and better weather. Neither of those were found but I decided to stay after meeting the love of my life, with whom I love to spend time either at home, on exotic holidays, or even just a campsite in North Wales.

Without actively looking for it, I was thrust into the recruitment industry and discovered where my talents and passion lay. Originally working with companies across London, I now focus on the Transactional Finance and Part Qualified Accounting market across the North West.

If this is the area you need assistance in, you can contact me on 07795 365943.

Kerry Norman

Co-Founder | HR Recruiter

Fresh from University, I fell into recruitment and here I am, 15 years later, heading up Medlock Partners HR division alongside Mark.

Having specialised in Commerce & Industry recruitment for the last 9 years, I have an extensive network and a strong reputation in recruiting Middle Management to Senior Level HR candidates. I genuinely enjoy working with people; whether that’s helping develop careers or adding true value to a business – I still love it after all these years. I thrive under pressure and you can expect an honest, pragmatic approach from me.

Outside of work I can be found mainly cleaning up after my 1 year old son or up a mountain on a hike. I enjoy cooking, drinking ales, spending time with my family and friends, listening to dance music and retreating to my yoga mat (or getting my head in a good book) when I need some time to myself.

What would my business partners say about me?

They’d say I eat and drink weird things including smoothies that are often a very questionable colour.
