From breaking down barriers with mental health and raising autism awareness to championing women in the workplace and resettlement, our ambassadors bring new perspectives and positive influence.

Current Morson Ambassadors include:

SPOTLIGHT ON...

Andy Reid | Afghanistan army veteran and author of 'Andy Reid - Standing Tall'

Corporal Andy Reid lost both his legs and right arm after stepping on an IED plate whilst serving with the 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment in Afghanistan in 2009. After spending only 2 weeks in hospital before returning home after his injury, Andy is a testament to overcoming adversity with a positive mindset.

Andy was chosen as a Morson Ambassador as his determination and optimism means that he is a role model, not only for the forces, but for the wider community. 

The partnership between Morson and Andy aims to get more ex-forces personnel into employment by using his knowledge of the forces community in conjunction with Morson's recruitment expertise.

Andy explains:

I hope to develop the relationship with Morson by helping to recruit more armed forces personnel. There’s a lot of guys out their who’ve got great skills and when they leave the armed forces some of those skills aren’t used anymore. I can see where within Morson Group those skills can be used. There’s a lot that the armed forces can offer when they leave service and Morson is an ideal place for them to explore that.

We hope this partnership will develop and grow, making a real difference to the resettlement of forces personnel.    

Adrian Head, Morson client development manager, who knows Andy well explains why Andy Reid is such an inspiration and a great ambassador for Morson…

Andy’s been through a lot of adversity himself, but he doesn’t lose sight of people who are less fortunate than he is. He’s able to connect with these people. He understands that coming out of a period of the navy, army or airforce and trying to transition across into civvy street can be difficult.

Morson have a demonstrable track record of putting ex-forces people into work, assignments and permanent employment and we want to build on this. We want to put that something back and Andy is going to be able to help us do that.

'https' : 'http') + '://btn.createsend1.com/js/sb.min.js?v=3'; e.className = 'createsend-script'; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(e, s); })(); Morson is delighted to announce our official Morson diversity ambassador, CEO and founder of Northern Power Women, Simone Roche MBE. Simone will become our first diversity champion and joins a growing list of existing Morson ambassadors across business, sport and the armed forces. Simone launched Northern Power Women when she saw the need to focus gender balance in the northern powerhouse region, with the goal of making the North a driving force. Her career has taken her from scaling the ranks of the Royal Navy to roles at Aintree Racecourse, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and the London Olympics. However, it was when she became director for a campaign supporting women in the hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism industry and subsequently became a champion for the Government Equalities Office that gender equality became her passion. In her role as Morson diversity ambassador, Simone will actively promote our commitment to diversity to engage the network of current and future leaders. Adrian Adair, Chief Operations Officer at Morson, said “There’s no denying that diversity achieves better commercial results by driving innovative ideas, changing the status quo and raising the bar for success. As a business must also create working environments that champion equality and inclusivity from the inside out. That’s why we’re delighted to add Simone as an ambassador.” Simone said “I’m delighted to become a diversity ambassador for Morson. The organisation, along with many of its clients, are a huge player in the Northern Powerhouse and the Northern Power Women initiative has been working closely with Morson for some time. I’m looking forward to taking my passion for addressing gender equality into this role and joining an impressive list of ambassadors from other fields.” Morson's Northern Power Women Representatives Adrian Adair, Morson COO and Northern Power Women Role Model With almost 20 years of experience in recruitment, Adrian Adair is Chief Operations Officer at Morson International. Adrian identifies the right internal talent to drive both Morson International and the wider Morson Group forward to achieve its goal of becoming a £1billion turnover business. He has identified the future boardroom, ensuring it’s diverse, equal and inclusive – all factors that are regarded highly throughout Morson International’s own recruitment strategy for itself and those of its clients. Samantha Price, Morson Head of Client Engagement and Northen Power Women Future List 2018 Leading Morson Group’s Equality and Diversity Champions Board and Women in Industry campaign, Sam has delivered a programme of transformational change within the business. Her commitment to improving gender balance through partnerships with organisations like the Girls’ Network, which empowers young females from disadvantaged communities to reach their aspirations, will leave a lasting legacy within the Morson Group. She has proven that diversity isn’t a buzz word, lip service won’t bring more diversity to male-dominated sectors but can-do kick-ass women like Sam just might, inspiring candidates & employers to embrace change. She champions both women in engineering and female talent within our business, positioning them as subject experts and trusted client advisors – which benefits our clients, candidate and employees. Rebekah Lee, Morson Head of Marketing and Northern Power Women Future List 2019 As head of marketing for Morson Group, I operate in sectors hardest hit by imbalances and work to actively attract talent from untapped pools, ensuring there are no barriers in place to hold talented people back. I am passionate about promoting diversity that goes beyond gender, working hard to challenge stigmas, open conversations and invite collaboration. The ‘Morson Equals Opportunities’ campaign is set to be my most important project to date, revolutionising how the business engages with our candidates online. A suite of accessibility tools, including solutions for visitors with dyslexia, visual impairment and learning difficulties, embedded into our website will enable 27% more of the UK population to access our online content than could previously. This campaign, combined with our new Group website, which utilises the latest tech to enhance the candidate journey, will deliver commercial benefits by uncovering a wealth of talent and further position Morson as a leader for EDI. Seeing the male-dominated industry in which I work as an opportunity to impact real change, I have developed powerful partnerships with organisations such as the Sale Sharks Community Trust, to break down attitudes with regards to masculinity and mental health. Inclusion into the Future List serves to empower this work which aims to transform the way people view mental health; opening up conversations, reducing stigma and encouraging cultural change.” Morson is particularly proud this year to be announced as the new sponsor for the NPW Future List and Innovation Award, alongside the headline sponsor, Manchester Airports Group, who have partnered with NPW for the past two years.

    Adrian Adair, Morson COO is Featured in Recruiter Magazine Discussing How Morson Uses Video and Content to Attract Top Talent

    THOUGHT LEADERSHIP | 2 MIN READ Adrian Adair, Morson Group Chief Operating Officer (COO) is featured in Recruiter Magazine. Find out how recruiters successfully recruit in their own business. In the latest issue of Recruiter Magazine, Adrian Adair, Morson Group Chief Operating Officer (COO) discusses how recruiters successfully recruit in their own business. Read on to find out about Morson’s talent attraction techniques using mixed media and omnichannel campaigns to gain a competitive edge. Recruiters are experts in sourcing the best talent for their clients, but what happens when they need to recruit top-notch recruiters to find and hire the best talent? In today’s job-rich, candidate-poor environment the competition for attracting the best candidates is fierce and so companies are required to think out of the box… Adrian Adair, Chief Operating Officer at Morson Group, agrees that video and content are the way to attract new talent, saying: “Competition for talent is growing, meaning employers must embrace different ways of searching for and attracting good people. At Morson, we use video, quality content and our own people to tell our Group story, whilst also widening our search for potential candidates by connecting with untapped talent pools. Return to work parents is a great example, with us helping mums and dads to overcome the challenges of balancing a career with family responsibilities by being flexible and agile.” To really sell the role you must ensure that candidates buy into the company and want to work for the brand. Having videos and testimonials highlighting what it’s really like to work at the company along with content that explains some of the benefits, will help to improve the candidate experience and enhance your reputation. Although many recruitment leaders debate whether it’s best to hire talent from inside or outside of the industry, Morson Group focuses on hiring a variety of talent, as Adair explains: “We have seen a real growing trend in the number of niche recruitment consultants joining our business, as the market increasingly craves industry specialists and technical expertise from people who understand what makes them tick. Whatever the role, from our apprentices right through to the board, we seek out people who want to be part of our business’ purpose and ambition” Recruiters are often required to work over a variety of sectors which is why recruiting talent who have a varied background works so well. The art is getting the balance right and have a mix of both new and emerging talent and experienced recruitment consultants to lead the way. Are you ready for a career change?
