Meet the team
As candidates at McKinsey, our founders, Rich and Nick, were frustrated by jobs boards and agencies. They wanted a platform that was curated & credible, without the middle man. Something for employers to reach them directly, even if they weren’t actively looking.
So movemeon was born.
We have partnered 1700+ employers through the hiring process. Our team uses expertise and data to help with marketing roles to our communities of consultants, qualified accountants & freelance consultants. We do the admin. And a dedicated member of our team is always on hand to help. Meet everyone below.
I’m Elisa and I was born in a little village close to Como in Italy, where I spent all my childhood. I studied for my BA and MA in Milano at Bocconi University. Upon graduation, I worked in Vodafone for two years. Currently I’m excited to be expanding Movemeon in Milano and Roma. One of my biggest passions is reading and in particular I love thrillers.
I was born in Romania, grew up in Hungary, and moved to the UK to study History at Oxford. Before joining MMO I worked as a sixth-form History teacher, as manager of a private tuition centre, and I’ve even dabbled in a bit of journalism. Before all of that, I wanted to be a professional dancer – I even danced in a Bollywood play in my second year at uni!
I studied PPE at Oxford, and before joining the movemeon team worked in consulting and then at an EdTech start-up. I’ve lived in a few places, including Kuwait and most recently Amsterdam, and exploring the world continues to be my favourite thing to do. In my spare time you’ll find me reading, painting, or hiking – I once trekked from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast across Costa Rica (the skinny bit!).
After graduating from Bournemouth University I spent the last few years specialising in events and marketing for wine companies. I have joined Movemeon part time to focus on marketing and events. Outside of Movemeon I work as a children’s entertainer! In my free time I love running and have completed several marathons.
Having escaped rural life in Surrey, I graduated from UCA and headed to the big city. Now at Movemeon, I’m a Client Success Manager. I proactively support employers to achieve their goals, and ensure they have the best possible experience. I love music and playing the drums; I was proud to perform at the London 2012 Olympics and UEFA Champions League.
I graduated from a marketing and communications master degree in Paris. After that, I decided to start discovering the world, starting with the big city of London. I love start-up environments and am currently focused on growing the Movemeon community, working on marketing and events.
Before joining MMO, I spent time undertaking internships here and there, as well as studying at the University of Lincoln. Through these opportunities, my interest in creating digital content and marketing grew. In my spare time, I’m either rowing at ridiculous hours of the morning, or reading dystopian novels.
Having spent the first 20 years of my life in Prague I then decided to experience new places. During my studies of English Law & French Law at King’s College London, and Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, I enjoyed living in two exciting European cities. I am now glad to be back in London to help Movemeon revolutionise the recruiting landscape. Apart from that, I also enjoy learning languages and putting them into practice when travelling – ideally to discover new rock climbing locations.
JACK SMITH LEGGATT
I’ve recently graduated from Exeter University and moved to London to join the team at Movemeon. I love travelling and spent a year of my degree studying abroad in Graz, Austria and discovering Europe. In my down time in the UK you can find me playing a variety of sports, particularly tennis, or watching films.
I graduated from Cambridge before working in the McKinsey London office. After a long discussion in the pub around how painful recruitment was – Rich and I set out on a mission to improve it! I love most sports (although more watching than playing these days), and dream of one day completing the seven summits!
I’m an Oxford grad and worked at McKinsey for close to 3 years with Nick. I’m the old man of the team and am married with 1 daughter. Before family life I was a bit of a jack of all trades sportsman and competed in a few mountain ultra marathons. I now try to get out a few times a week for a jog along the Thames in SW London!
