Melissa Self

ConsultantSpecialising in Energy, Manufacturing & Materials

About Melissa: ​I started in recruitment over 20 years ago initially within administration before being invited to become a Consultant, and I haven’t looked back since. I worked my way up to Operations Manager for a team supporting the Water industry for both permanent and contract. After a period of maternity leave and looking for a new challenge I moved into the Fire & Security industry in 2018 and joined the Essex office of Jonathan Lee in 2021 to add to their portfolio of services.

Away from work: I enjoy travelling with my family to new and exciting places, being a mum is the biggest and most awarding achievement to date. I would like to swim with sharks in the future, but I have already enjoyed a cuddle with a baby tiger!

​I'm skilled in recruiting for the following positions/sectors:

Fire & Security  - covering all aspects for CCTV, Access Control, Intruder, Fire Alarms, Sprinkler, Suppression, Water Mist, Manned Guarding, Vacant Property, Site Security, Perimeter Protection and many more.
