Meet the team


Laura McIntosh

Branch Manager

Based in the Oldmeldrum office, Laura feels lucky to be part of such a great team after joining Activus 2 years ago as Assistant Branch Manager and since being promoted to Branch Manager.

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 children Rebecca and Lewis and her pets or meeting up with friends and family.

After a long (12 years!) break from working to raise her family, Caroline is enjoying being back at work in the recruitment industry.

When not at work, you will find Caroline at home with her three children Harry, Robbie and Cara who keep her very busy! Caroline loves to socialise with her family and friends in her spare time, and to support her favourite charity Charlie House with local fundraising events.
