Our Ipswich branch is led by Michelle Quinlan. Working alongside her the brilliant Jamie and Nahlyn our Shift Coordinators. Michelle and her team are fun, loving, enthusiastic Swan’s and are proactively always looking to branch out and put their stamp on recruitment in the Healthcare and Commercial sectors.
We asked our Ipswich team…
What makes your approach to client and candidate care different from other agencies?
We are conscientious and focused recruiters, having been a manager for many years I understand the importance and impact recruiting the right staff has on a company’s profitability and success. In today’s global market place it is not just about qualifications, skills and experience – personality, drive and attitude play a massive part in how a person will fit into a company, so learning as much as I can about a company’s culture, people and long term goals is a must.
Why do you choose to recruit for Swanstaff rather than elsewhere?
The variety of sectors that we work with and the friendly team environment.

Michelle’s recruitment career has seen her venture to Nigeria where she had the pleasure of eating catfish stew…delicious.
