Member Spotlight – m2r Education
This month Munir Mamujee, Managing Director of m2r Education, tells us more about his multi award-winning recruitment firm.
1. Summarise your business in a couple of sentences
We are a multi award winning recruitment firm focussing on the international education sector. We work with schools, colleges, universities and private language centres across the globe, supplying them with high quality teaching staff. To date we operate in over 30 different countries.
2. Can you showcase your work by offering an example of a recent project/initiative/event?
We worked with a UK trade body on a pioneering project to staff a brand new flagship Higher Education college in the West African country of Mauritania. The project is the first of its kind between the two countries and our task was to source and supply a cohort of teachers and senior management to allow the college to open on time. This proved to be extremely challenging however we successfully managed to fill the roles and the college was opened on 27th November 2016 by the President of Mauritania.
3. How long have you worked/been based in Wakefield?
The business was set up in 2001 and we operated out of Monckton Road before moving into the city centre in 2010. We are now based on Westgate.
4. Why Wakefield?
I was born here and have a great affinity for the city. Prior to setting up my own company I worked in Leeds and Sheffield, however when I decided to take the plunge, there was only going to be one location of choice.
5. Why have you become a Bondholder?
I am passionate about Wakefield and want to showcase the city to an international audience. I already take our clients gifts about Wakefield so this is an ideal opportunity to promote the city and other businesses at the same time. Being a Bondholder also gives us a sense of community spirit and the opportunity to meet likeminded business people.
6. What’s next for Wakefield?
Hopefully loads of positivity and prosperity!
7. Do you know an interesting fact about the district?
Wakefield is the only city in Europe without a professional football team. (I think!!!)
