I share the Companies ethos for looking after people in a positive, ethical and professional way and I am devoted to building strong relationships with everybody that I work with. Seeing somebody find their perfect job in an industry that really makes a difference to people lives is something I am extremely passionate about and is the reason I have worked in recruitment for most of my career – Positive Futures brings all my skillset together and I love what I do. It is really important to me to help and support my clients in filling their roles with the right person, somebody that cares about their work and takes pride in what they can offer.
I cover the South West, an area that I have worked in for my entire career and where I also live with my young family and dog!

Rather than tell you why you should work with Positive Futures, we thought we would let our clients and candidates do the talking…
“Having worked closely with Margo and Susan on an array of roles for our organisation, they have been exceptional and always strived to exceed our expectations wherever possible. Consistently sourcing us candidates for care and education roles, Margo and Susan have always delivered great customer service, quality candidates and assistance at every turn- we are thrilled with their efforts and the outstanding service they have provided us.”AnnieRecruitment Coordinator – Children and Adults Services UK Wide
“As an employer that manages over 500 starters a year it’s key that your suppliers work effectively with you and for you.StephenResourcing Manager – National Children and Adults Services
Whilst large corporate agencies may have the manpower, purchasing power and commercial presence; we’ve yet to have a supplier that works harder or more efficiently for us than Positive Futures. Last year they were our most successful supplier by quite some distance and this year is looking exactly the same.”
“We have found Margo and Positive Futures Recruitment attentive to our specific recruitment needs and committed to sourcing excellent candidates. They worked quickly, efficiently and with no fuss. The company have really contributed to the success of our service delivery in the past 18 months. We’d recommend them to anyone in the sector.”DavidSEMH Children’s Homes – Central and East of England
“Margo is by far the most dedicated and professional recruitment professional I have ever dealt with. Margo is tenacious in pursuing the perfect candidate yet friendly, very approachable and a consummate professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending Margo and her organisation and for this reason, Margo and her team are our go to agency for recruitment”MikeChildren’s Complex Care provider
“My experience with Margo was great, from beginning to end. The application process was smooth, Margo was very efficient in keeping me updated with 'what happens next'. Margo was very approachable, and her manner put me at ease when speaking about the job on the phone and preparing for the interview. I'm very grateful for Margo's help in finding me my current job.”DaryllSEN Teacher – Specialist Education
“I have to say from start to finish I had a really positive experience working with Positive Futures recruitment. All of the telephone interactions I had were not only very encouraging and supportive but also gave the right amount of information regarding what to expect at interview, what to expect of the job role itself, and how to prepare for interview. It was particularly helpful that you kept in contact on the run up to interview, taking time to do interview practice with candidates was invaluable. I think the most important factor for me was your demeanour, very friendly , positive , and a supportive calming influence. Sometimes it’s not what you say it’s how you deliver it and I was very grateful to have such a lovely person at the end of the phone when I was so nervous . I have nothing but praise for positive futures recruitment and would highly recommend them.”XanthiaAdult Learning Disabilities Support Worker
“Thanks Positive Futures Recruitment! Honestly I am really loving the job even more than I could've ever expected and I can’t thank Susan enough - in particularly, for your enthusiastic support thoughout the interview process, I don’t believe I would’ve done so well at my interview without your help and guidance! I am very glad I applied on a whim and feel very grateful for this job I now have, I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it and everything I am now learning everyday. Thank you again!”ChloeYoung Adult Support Worker
“So grateful to Susan and Positive Futures Recruitment. Thank you so much for everything that you've done. I wouldn't have got the job without all of your efforts. So thank you for supporting me in my journey and believing in me, it was just the confidence boost I needed. I'm looking forward to a new chapter.”GeorginaAdult Learning Disabilities – Youth Worker
“Margo is a genuine professional who puts the needs of her clients first, and takes great care to ensure those with skills connect with those who need those skills. She treats each person she places as an individual. When she contacted me, she had taken the time to read my CV and didn't try to simply fit me into an unsuitable post: few recruiters take this much care. She is personable, listens, and is insightful.”BethannNurse Advanced Teaching and Education
