Meet the Staff Now team

We are a small team of local recruitment professionals with a wide range of skills and experience. We love what we do, and we do it with passion. We’d love to work with you, and help you find the candidates or job you’re looking for.

We’re a very welcoming team – our door is always open for people to come and chat about what they’re looking for.

Diana Saine

Operations Director

It’s an exciting time to be working in recruitment. We’re real people – we’re tenacious and we get things done.

I spend a lot of my time meeting and talking to people, at interviews, jobs fairs and networking meetings. I love listening to people and their stories – understanding what makes them tick. It’s the best way of getting to the heart of what they’re looking for and what they can offer – whether they’re a business or a potential candidate.

We’ve got a great team here – I’m proud to say I chose each one of our team due to their skills, so I know exactly how fantastic they all are. Every day is different and we support each other, whatever the day brings!

I have a big heart and know recruitment inside out. Use your valuable time growing your business and let me and the team recruit you the right people in the right places.

Mary Booker

Recruitment Consultant

Before working for Staff Now I spent seven years working for the Department of Work and Pensions as a job coach, advising, guiding and training people in functional skills.

I’m really proud of how we help people even when they don’t have a lot of work experience. If they’re willing to get cracking and prove themselves, we’ll support them at every step, building them and their experience to get to where they eventually want to be.

I’m proud that we’re a sympathetic and flexible Disability Confident employer. We have a number of people on our books who have a disability or what might be seen as a barrier to work. It makes me happy to use my experience to help someone remove those barriers. I take the time to advise people on the types of benefits they could claim and how the system works. It all helps – supporting people to be an active part of their local community.

Miz Habijanec

Recruitment Consultant

Before my role at Staff Now I was a supervisor for a local home care team, so I immediately understand what our care sector clients are looking for, and can use my experience to advise candidates looking for care jobs. I’m leading the development of our care desk and am proud that we offer candidates free care training.

I also worked in education for 11 years, finding work experience placements, organising business events and coaching students in interview techniques. I draw on this experience every day to help Staff Now offer our candidates a professional and supportive service. 

At Staff Now we don’t compartmentalise or judge people. We want to get people busy. I pride myself on seeing people’s potential and helping them build their confidence.

Charley Hawkins

Recruiter Consultant

I look after our permanent recruitment, our social media and our window ads. I love being creative in all aspects of my work, whether that’s finding someone a job or designing eye-catching Facebook posts.

I love the variety here. We find people to work in lots of different roles: cleaning jobs, catering jobs and admin jobs to name but a few!

I’ve got lots of experience in recruitment, on both sides of the desk. Having been a temp, I know how our candidates feel. I love meeting people and using my experience to give them great advice and support to get into a permanent role.

Admin Recruiter

It’s my job to call candidates after they’ve registered online with us. I spend time talking to them about the roles we have available, and what they’re looking for. These conversations are a vital part of our service. Because I’m a patient  listener and good at assessing people’s skills I can build a complete picture of someone’s experience, their likes and dislikes and what they can offer an employer.

I have a background in social work, which means I’m good at teasing things out. I love encouraging people to see their capabilities and realise their potential.

A part of my job I’m very proud of is our work with local organisations supporting immigrants to learn English and build up their work experience.

Staff Now is a one-stop-shop for candidates and employers. We each have our own role to play, but together we support people and love helping them to progress.

Let’s work together!
