Meet the team


Laura McIntosh

Assistant Branch Manager

Based in the Oldmeldrum office, Laura feels lucky to have such a great team around her and loves a new challenge. Laura thrives in finding the right candidates and placing them with our fantastic clients.

Having previously worked at a Retirement Village for over 7 years as an Office Manager and being involved in the internal recruitment of staff, Laura took a leap into the 360 Recruitment world, and she hasn’t looked back since. Laura feels recruitment has introduced her to a variety of people from all over the country and in fact, the world! Every day is different and presents a new opportunity and challenge.

When Laura is not at work you will find her at home with her two kids Rebecca and Lewis and her fur babies Dennis (the Menace) and (Horrid) Henry. Laura loves spending time with her family and friends for a catch up and laughs.

Hannah Eady

Recruitment Administrator

Hannah joined the team in March 2022. Hannah likes that no two days are ever the same and that is what makes her role so interesting! Hannah really enjoys getting to know the clients that we deal with on a regular basis, and building relationships with them. She love's being able to speak to candidates to find out exactly what it is they are looking for, and then finding them their ideal position. It’s so rewarding being able to find a candidate the perfect role for them.

When Hannah's not at work, she absolutely love's going out for food, it’s one of her favourite things to do. A firm favourite of Hannah's would have to be Wagamama’s, but she also rate's a Nando’s! Hannah has two dogs, Ralph and Archie, who she is obsessed with and love's spending time with. On the weekends, Hannah likes to take them on walks to the beach or around the forest.
