Well worth the call and will certainly use again if I want to make another move in the future.

My dealings with 360North were extremely positive. I found Michael to be friendly, personable and very approachable. He took the time to understand my objectives and kept me informed throughout the whole process. I work within a specialist market and Michael demonstrated an excellent understanding of the sector and most importantly, the type of culture I was seeking within a new role. It took a total of 5 weeks from the date my CV was submitted to job offer. All in all, working with 360North was a hugely positive experience. Michael clearly has extensive experience and knowledge of the UK real estate market and I would strongly recommend him to any property professional looking for their next career move.

Roy Taylor – Building Manager

360North were instrumental in helping me to get my new job. Michael’s communication was superb and the preparation he gave me before the interviews ensured that I felt prepared and confident. Nothing was too much trouble and every query I had was answered straight away even in the evening! If it had not been for the support offered throughout I’m not sure if I could have performed so well at the interviews. I would recommend 360North to help you find your next job

Associate Partner – Ashtenne

Michael was retained by Ashtenne to secure a new Regional Director for the North East office which I was lucky enough to secure.

Director's profile

Michael Ashworth

Michael has almost ten years’ experience of recruiting within the Surveying arena having previously worked for two other property and real estate focused consultancies. Initially establishing himself as a regional GP specialist, Michael became a go-to recruiter across this specialist market. More recently operating at senior level, Michael managed a General Practice team operating across the UK market, encompassing a Retail and Leisure Estates specialism. During this time, he also successfully established a London GP desk and successfully recruited for a range of London based property consultancies, funds, developers, private equity houses and high net worth individuals. Having honed his expertise through both buoyant and extremely difficult market conditions, he founded 360North to bring a unique and highly consultative offering to what is now a thriving UK property market.

We are firm believers that the most successful partnerships are forged on trust and reputation.   For this reason, 360North do not use job boards to advertise vacancies or source candidates. Instead we will take our time to understand the needs of our clients and candidates before utilising our growing 360North community to deliver the best results. This unique approach enables us to achieve market leading accuracy ratios to our clients and take the required time to deliver a truly consultative approach to all of our candidates.
