Mel is Honeypot's founder and Boss Lady. She set up Honeypot back in 2011, having worked in recruitment for 15 years previously, with the aim of establishing a market leading consultancy in the South doing exactly what it says on the tin - consulting. Out of work she is a busy mum of two teenagers and office dog Barney, and loves the outdoors. You'll often find her out walking, or more recently running which has become her new 'thing'.
Kirsty runs our Marketing Recruitment Desk, and has a strong background in media sales and digital marketing. She also recruits for some big household names in the kitchen and bathroom sector, having been a designer in her previous life. Outside of work she is a devoted dog mum to Monty and Mollie, and loves her walks and fitness. Fun Fact...Kirsty ran a pub when she was 19!
Jed has been with Honeypot 8 years, and is focused on the construction sales, and engineering sales sector.

Sasha sources the best possible people for all our client's needs. If you are looking for a new role she wants to hear from you!

Outside of work you'll often find him at a festival, sipping a long island ice tea, or at a karaoke bar - he is Welsh after all and he loves to sing!

Jed rang me after finding my CV online and sorted me out an interview with a great company and I start in a couple weeks. The most helpful and friendly bloke you can deal with. Cheers.
Couldn’t recommend Honeypot People enough. For anyone that strays away from recruitment fee’s it is definitely worth spending the money. When you have a list as long as your arm every day, it almost becomes a chore to go through CV’s. – Using Honeypot People was easy, efficient and we got a great result. Philippa really took the time to understand the business, what we were looking for and most importantly who would fit the team dynamic. It felt as though we were working very much together with a great business relationship. Will be asking her again!
Greg Allen put me forward for a position at my present company. He was very professional and kept me updated on what was going on. Greg is very conscientious and hardworking from what dealings I have had with him. He is also very friendly and puts you at your ease. He organised a telephone interview, then a face-to-face interview. He seems very adept at ‘matching people’. An altogether very pleasant young man.
I was contacted by Jed who found my CV online. He had 1 specific job in mind for me and it was the absolute perfect match. Well done. I'm now a few weeks into my new role and I'm really enjoying it. He seemed to understand exactly what the company was looking for and he knew I'd be right for it. Thanks a bunch Jed!
They are literally amazing. Helped me get my dream job and I will be eternally grateful. Thank you so much to the team for all the support and keeping me so well informed the whole way through.
All the consultants were very professional and helpful. I'd like to say a special thank you to Jed for finding me the perfect role and having me back to work within a week of me arriving back in the UK. I had a number of agencies contacting me however the honeypot people were the best by far and I'd recommend them over any other recruitment agency around. Thank you.
I was contacted out of the blue by Melanie, and had my CV forwarded to a potential employer by Honey Pot People, which resulted in me landing an amazing and life changing job with a fantastic Not for Profit organisation! Thank you Melanie and everyone at Honey Pot People!
have to say that it was a pleasure to work with Mell and her team. Within a week she had organised and prepared me for interviews. In addition she followed up with me and the employer to find out how I did. If you need to find the right job for you, leave it with them and they will take care of it.
