Michael Burns

Michael is the Director of Operations, and Director of practical jokes, silly voices, and the bringing of baked goods. In all seriousness, Michael has had extensive experience working in both public sector and education, and has used his expertise in these areas to shape Nineteen's service offering to these sectors.

In addition to being a highly talented and reactive recruiter, Michael gets a buzz from ensuring the business always has the required infrastructure to be able to operate in a consistent and smooth way, and therefore deliver an outstanding level of service for clients and candidates alike. Michael is passionate about ensuring the correct partnerships and processes are in place to deliver high quality, specialist recruitment that is completely transparent and stays true to the company's core values.

His likes:

  • 90s music (Gallaghers, mainly.)
  • Talking football on Twitter
  • London
  • Wine gums

He's not keen on:

  • Cheese
  • Food that is even one minute out of date
  • Reality telly
  • James Corden

Random fact about Michael: He was very nearly a Goalkeeper for a living. He had trials to play for England but it didn't go his way due to his height. Football's loss is recruitment's gain though. It's all good. 

Something you'll find on his desk: A mess.
