So far, September has shown no signs of slowing down for us as we have already welcomed 4 new members to the team, and now we are excited to introduce a brand-new key hire for our future expansion plans and for our engineering team.

Michael Drake is an experienced Senior Recruiter with over 6 years recruiting for the Engineering industry, and we are delighted to announce that he has joined TEC Partners as Head of Contract Engineering.

Michael has just relocated from Bury St. Edmunds to Norwich having recruited within the Engineering industry for the past 6 years exclusively recruiting for contract/interim and temporary positions. Michael’s Contract Engineering team will cover a vast array of technical engineering requirements for clients within the East of England at TEC Partners.

With a genuine passion for how products are made and manufactured, Michael takes pride in fully understanding what businesses do and how he can help them get projects completed on time with his portfolio of contractors.

Talking about his new role with us, Michael says: “I’m really excited to have joined TEC Partners. I can’t thank Chris, Paul, and Leigh enough for their support throughout the entire process of relocating to Norwich. They have been amazing and it’s so refreshing to see they actually care about me as a person and I honestly feel like they genuinely want me to succeed within their business.”

“As the new Head of Contract Engineering, I can’t wait to begin developing my team as we’ve also got some really interesting growth planned in exciting new tech markets beyond engineering too!

“In the current political and economic climate, I know there is a shortage of talented freelancers in the East of England, so I’ve made it my mission to use my extensive network to help clients find the right contractor for their projects – all with a smile on my face!”

Before joining the world of recruitment, Michael began his sales career in real estate after failing to become a successful NBA basketball payer as a 6’7” teenager! However, Michael isn’t without his strengths as his height makes him a dab-hand at painting ceilings, changing light bulbs, and being a meeting point for his friends at gigs, football matches, or any crowded areas.

Outside of work, Michael enjoys a range of sports including football, basketball, badminton, and going to the gym, as well as socialising with friends at local watering holes or restaurants. However, as he has recently relocated to Norwich, he’s currently accepting recommendations for pubs and restaurants as he is currently navigating the city using Google maps!!

About Michael:

Likes: Spending time with his nephew, Chelsea football club, a decent craft beer and going to the odd gig.

Dislikes: Heavy metal, Spurs, tinned tuna, and running.

Random fact: “I genuinely can’t fit in the middle or window seat of a plane.”
