MichelleRyan

Michelle Ryan

Director

Having completed a degree in Law and French from the University of Limerick in Ireland in 2006 and returned from a summer travelling and working in the USA, Michelle took a plunge and moved to London to carve out her career. With a bit of luck, good timing and a no quit attitude she soon found herself immersed in the world of Recruitment and hasn't looked back since.

Starting as a trainee, Michelle was the company's top-billing rookie in her first year and has consistently hit multiple targets to reach her goal of Equity Director. She now runs the company's largest division which specialises in placing graduates and trainees into the UK's Top Recruitment Consultancies.

Outside of Recruitment Michelle is a keen cyclist, runner, traveller, festival-goer and food and drinks enthusiast.

Michael Delea

Associate Director

For his first two years out of University, Michael worked as a Financial Contractor for Lloyds Banking Group. He joined us in April 2014 as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant, three very well deserved promotions later he built his team less than 2 years after joining us. In July 2017 he became an Associate Director at SW6.

Michael has an inherent ability to quickly get to grips with both his clients’ and candidates’ needs which has no doubt been a factor in his astonishing success so far. Michael has very quickly made a name for himself in the industry as the ‘go to’ recruiter if you’re looking to start your career in Recruitment in London.

Favourite place you’ve ever been?

What was the first thing you bought with your own money?

What is the most ambitious thing you've ever done?

Rugby has been pretty challenging, but probably the most challenging thing I’ve done was moving to London. Born and raised (and went to uni!) in the West Country, it was a pretty big challenge to move to the City with almost all my family and friends still back home. I don’t regret it for a second though, London is crazy!

Invisibility

What was the first thing you bought with your own money?

A speaker. My first job when I was 12 was working in a hairdressers sweeping hair and making tea & coffee etc. I worked every Saturday 8-5 earning £30. I saved up for months and bought myself a speaker which cost me £400.

What is the most ambitious thing you've ever done?

Definitely moving to London and starting this new job. Being only 18 and living miles away in a small town near the coast it was a big change moving up to the City. I had a month to leave my current role, move out of my current flat and find somewhere to live in London. This turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made. I’m loving the London life and really enjoy working at SW6. Everyone in the company helped out, gave me ideas on locations to move to and played a big part in me settling in to this new lifestyle.
