Michael has over thirteen years’ experience recruiting across the UK real estate market having previously worked for two other property and real estate focussed consultancies.

He has successfully executed mandates for a diverse range of clients including property consultancies, funds, developers, private equity houses and high net worth individuals.
Michael established 360North in January 2016 to bring a unique and highly consultative offering to what is now a thriving UK property market.

Jake Scott-Thrale – Asset Manager, Far East Consortium
Michael was recommended to me via a trusted member and did not disappoint. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with, he was patient, kind and gave me plenty on encouragement throughout the whole process. Dealing with Michael made my choice just that little bit easier and for that I have to thank him. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to anyone else.
Sasha Williamson – Associate Director, Bradley Hall
Michael was a pleasure to work with, always friendly and helpful. He took the time and effort to read my CV thoroughly and chat things through with me on the phone. He communicated with me promptly throughout and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Lynne Keenan – Head of Scotland, MAPP
Michael is an exceptional recruiter. I have worked with him on both sides of the fence, the first when he put me forward for my previous role as Head of Scotland Property Management for CBRE and more recently in helping me to build my whole team in my new, and exciting role as Head of Scotland Property Management for MAPP. I have been appointed by MAPP to set up a Scottish office and put a team in place. The efficient and swift manner Michael dealt with this resulted in three appointments being made within four weeks. Michael took the time to understand our requirements and provided a very detailed and thorough summary of the candidates to ensure they were right for the roles. An incredible result for all involved
Chris Jones – Head of Property, Sunbelt Rentals
Michael was recommended to me via a trusted contact in the market. During uncertain market conditions, we had struggled to source the right calibre of candidate for an Estates Manager position. I met Michael to talk him through the brief and he was able to present a number of strong CVs, resulting in the successful appointment of a candidate who fits our brief perfectly. Michael has subsequently also sourced a Building Surveyor for our Estates team. The whole process was extremely thorough and well managed. Michael was always available and managed every stage from initial brief to offer management. I would recommend Michael and 360North to anyone looking for a highly consultative and efficient value-add service to their recruitment process.
Zuhaib Judge, Building Surveyor – Sunbelt Rentals
THE best recruiter EVER! ... Michael is in a class of his own. Can't thank him enough for finding me the perfect role after being made redundant. Precise, articulate and down to earth. No BS included, just what you need when you need results fast! Thank you for your services and I will recommend to ALL.
Stephen Clayton, Sales Manager – Far East Consortium
Michael was outstanding to deal with when moving to my new role, his communication and commitment to his clients is second to none. I can’t recommend him highly enough & would urge anyone either recruiting or looking for a new role to speak to Michael
Debbie Illingworth, Executive Director – MAPP
I have worked with Michael for a number of years to recruit property professionals for my team. He is extremely well connected and has outstanding knowledge of the UK property market. Michael recently recruited 2 senior level property managers for me at MAPP for our Manchester and Birmingham offices. He is always available and manages the entire process from initial instruction through to offer management and start date. A very knowledgeable and well respected recruiter – highly recommend.
Abby Petch, Associate Director – MAPP
Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with. He kept me informed and updated at every stage of the recruitment process. A great guy and a great recruitment consultant. I would highly recommend working with Michael.
James Millson, Property Manager – CEG
Michael recruited me to CEG in late 2019. His knowledge of his client and the role were exceptionally in depth. He really got under the skin of what the role would entail. His insight into the interview process, individuals involved and structure of the organisation made the whole process much more straight forward. It made what can be a daunting and stressful process feel much less so. His approach-ability and availability to take calls or arrange a follow up were a step beyond his peers. Thank You!
Anna Main, Director and Head of Property & Asset Management – Landwood Group
I have known Michael for a number of years and have always found him to be a highly professional and knowledgeable real estate recruiter. He recently helped me out by recruiting 2 candidates into my Property and Asset Management team at Landwood Group. In a difficult market, he worked quickly and methodically to secure 2 outstanding individuals. Both have settled into the team extremely well. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to any real estate business looking to add property professionals to their organisation. I will certainly be using Michael and 360North again on any future recruitment mandates.
Paresha Patel, Client Accountant – Landwood Group
Michael is friendly and extremely helpful!! Michael found me via Linkedin and contacted me about a position he was recruiting for. We arranged a call where Michael got to know me, my skills and the things i was looking for within a company and role. I told Michael about some of the disappointing experiences I had had with other recruitment consultants in the past and how I didn’t want to go down that route again. Michael took all this on board and kept me in the loop at every stage and provided me with any relevant feedback. Thankfully I was successful in the role and now work for a great company. Thank you Michael for all your help, I wish you all the success in your role!

Manu Dinamani, Acquisitions Manager – Crosslane Co-Living
I have known Michael for over 5 years and he has only ever put me forward for roles that genuinely suit. Being extremely selective I know I have not been an easy client but Michael has facilitated my recent change of role to an entity who is a perfect fit. I would highly recommend Michael and 360North to anyone exploring a change in career, or looking for a candidate who fits the requirements. Looking forward to working with Michael more in the future, but from the other side. Extremely well connected, great knowledge of the market and always available.
Tom Cherry, Operations Director – UK & European Investments
I have worked with Michael on a number of occasions, most recently with him successfully sourcing and placing a candidate in to our real estate transactions team. Michael took the time to understand the needs of our business and presented a well thought out short list of candidates. Michael was incredibly helpful in managing the whole process and I am happy to recommend him.
Julie-Ann Lewis, Team Secretary – HIMOR
Michael contacted me direct to discuss a specific role. It was clear from the outset he had read my CV thoroughly and was keen to place me within an environment my skill set and experience would suit.

I would definitely recommend Michael, he was reliable and genuinely cared about my next career move.
Adam Mason, Senior Surveyor – Lambert Smith Hampton
I found Michael to be very thorough throughout the recruitment process. He really took the time to initially discuss my main motivations for wanting to change roles and then followed this up by regularly bringing roles to my attention over the following weeks.

I would certainly recommend 360 North to other property professionals looking for help in securing their next career move

Hollie Buckle, Regional Development Director – Crosslane
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Michael. He was supportive, diligent and kept me informed throughout the process. Michael took the time to meet with me in person and built an in-depth understanding of my career history and future aspirations. Michael introduced me to a Regional Director role in the North West and very quickly secured an interview which led to a successful job offer. He negotiated the role’s package on my behalf and I trusted that he would represent my aspirations strongly and ultimately secure me the best offer. My experience of working with Michael has been extremely positive and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and supportive recruitment process.

David Cran, Eddisons
Michael was on the ball, regularly in contact by phone and email and setting up interviews within days. Rather than just sending in my CV we arranged a meeting so he knew exactly what I was looking for and as such found me the perfect job in literally a week and a half in the worst employment market in decades. Well worth the call and will certainly use again if I want to make another move in the future.

Thank You
Simon Hooper – Eddisons Taylors
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
